This Graphic Explains Winter on the East vs. West Side of Cleveland

Posted By on Thu, Jan 21, 2016 at 9:42 AM

There's a conversation brewing on Reddit about how much snow Cleveland's eastsiders versus westsiders get each time Lake Effect rears its ugly head. We may expect it every winter, but actually driving through is a whole 'nother problem altogether, especially if you happen to live on one side of the river vs. the other. To wit: Chardon can get 29 inches of snow and Rocky River can be beachtown (basically). It's an age-old convo and is best summed up by this graphic, from PipingHotGravy.

If you want to get into words instead of pictures (boo!), here's part of the ensuing conversation on the thread.



Some users mentioned the demarcation line where drivers can literally see where the snow is falling (and, well, not falling):

And for one eastsider, getting a snack was a risk worth taking:

It's also likely the west side just gained another resident:
