Ken Heye of Medina took this picture on Tuesday at about 4 p.m. in the Town of Alabama, looking south towards the massive snow storm.

Rick Baase of Point Breeze lives along the Lake Ontario shoreline. He took this photo Tuesday of a Canadian freighter close to the shoreline, trying to escape the biggest waves. Baase said it appeared the freighter was only about a half-mile from shore.

“It’s very windy here,” Baase said Tuesday. “It’s one of those days where it sounds like Niagara Falls outside from just the wind noise.”

Orleans County could get 1 to 2 inches of snow tonight with a chance for more snow on Thursday night and Friday.
