  1. Checking in from South Buffalo! Just over 60 inches here and we are making due! City of good neighbors!!! Luckily I’m on the extreme northern edge of this event and were seeing an awesome effort to dig us out! Unfortunately many in the the suburbs Cheektowaga, West Seneca, Orchard Park, Hamburg, and so on are literally buried alive. Up to 10 storm deaths now and several more people are reported as missing. Without doubt this is the most catastrophic storm to hit Buffalo since 77. People are trapped in there homes, many with out food or basic essentials. A co worker told me is snowbound with no more than a few bottles of water and half a gallon of milk that they are holding back for their young son. Many cannot get to hospital and have died. The snow games are suppose to be fun but this is total devestation in the Buffalo southtowns… Now we are faced with roof cave ins and further destruction. WNY is paralyzed.

    • Believe me General, I feel for all of you and what you are going through. Normally I am hoping that Buffalo doesn’t get snow so that Syracuse can win. The last few days I have been hoping for the snow to stop to give you guys a break and because I know how serious the situation is there. You’re right, the site normally is about just having some friendly fun but I know there isn’t anything fun about what’s going on there. I can’t imagine what everyone is going through and we both know that the death toll will be going up :( Thanks for posting and keeping us updated and STAY SAFE Steve! Let’s hope that for some reason that rain shifts come the end of the weekend and Monday and misses all of you.

  2. Up to about 85 inches and snow is creeping back up toward us. Up to 8 deaths now and supposed to keep snowing through early evening. Snow should shift south into the ski resorts around 6pm. That should be the end of it. Estimated around 90 inches here and many other towns by the end of the storm.
