    Why do they classify rain as lake effect? Who really cares? It's rain. It's gotta come from somewhere. The meteorologists probably aren't right about whether or not it's lake effect, anyways. How often are they right about anything else?*

    I think they probably are right on this one. The moisture has to come from somewhere and if humidity readings before a lake or body of water are not sufficient to produce rain but are after, well as you said, it had to come from somewhere.

    Where I live, I have never heard the term lake effect on my weather news.
    So, I'm assuming living near the Great Lakes, that are basically ocean-size, that's where some or most of your rain comes from.

    We always had lake effect snow from Lake Erie and it could cripple the Akron/Cleveland area.
