Somewhere around the middle of the 20th century American cities took a wrong turn. We can thank white flight, suburban explosion and neglect of inner cities for that. The result is the depressing urban lanscapes such as what you see in these pictures. A once thriving city that now looks like a ghost town. And this is a city of almost 300k in the city limits and 650k in the metro. About the same size as Alicante which is showcased a couple of threads below. Sad.

Not all of them, in fact I doubt if any of them were taken on a Christmas Eve in Toledo, OH. Fact: Toledo is located on Lake Erie and adjacent to the Michigan state line. As anyone who knows anything about US climate, especially that of the Midwest-Great Lakes area, will readily see that there is no snow on the ground, some of the trees have foliage and the sky in a number of shots is different, all, yes ALL, deciduous trees shed their foliage in the fall of every Great Lakes located states.. Even if there had not been a snow storm in upper Ohio, prior to late December 2011, there is always what is known as Lake effect snow. There was snow on the ground of Toledo during the week preceding Christmas 2011.

Nice logic, bro. But completely wrong, as always.

I've lived at least a decade in Toledo. The only trees in those pictures that have leaves are coniferous trees, which there's a number of up here in this part of the country. Toledo does not get Lake Effect snow. This year has had very little snowfall in fact in Toledo. Downtown Toledo does empty out after work hours, but there are a number of restaurants and bars there. There are also minor league hockey and baseball teams downtown, with fairly new stadiums. There are a couple of performing arts venues downtown as well. Summer weekends bring lots of people downtown for various festivals and concerts.

But not even Toledo, Spain could claim December 24 to be in the summer season.

The only lake side community on the Great lakes that doesn't get "lake effect" snow. We know it's situated on Lake Erie because we can see a lake freighter and a shit-load of grain silo's in one of the pictures. Do you know that the Port of Toledo also receives ocean going freighters?

Toledo will get "lake effect" snow when it receives wind out of the north east which blows out of Ontario and picking up moisture from the surface of Lake Erie when blowing across the warm (er) waters of that lake and into upstate NY, PA and OH.

You have no idea what you're talking about. There are certain areas around the Great Lakes that commonly get lake effect snow, but Toledo is not one of them.

And yes, these were all taken within a few hours on the afternoon of December 24.
