A word maybe too commonly thrown around these days. But this is EPIC!

Buffalo, NY got a 6 footer in the works





This one is big but really shows what lake effect snow is all about...

I guess I won't complain that we are supposed to get a couple inches today in Toronto.

Heard that some Sabres hockey players & arena staff couldn't make it to the game because of this. Where do they put all that snow? Is it dumped into the lake?

By the time this is over some parts of the city will have over 8 feet of snow. The snow to water ratio is right around 11, so because the math is easier, I'll use a multiple of 11 inches. Assuming 55 inches as an average, you end up with 5 inches of water, or roughly 12.5 cm. The land area of the city of Buffalo (i.e., ignoring lakes, rivers, streams and suburbs) is 105 square km. The density of water is 1gm/cm^3, or 1000kg/m^3. Working the arithmetic, that results in 13,125,000,000 kg of water, or 28,875,000,000 lbs or 14,437,500 tons of snow. Of course, if you assume a higher average snowfall, the numbers just go up.

The Bills are offering $10/hour and game tickets to anyone willing to help clear the stadium snow for the Sunday game vs the Jets. Geno Smith just signed up!

I've rooted for a warming to exist for many years. I have no need for snow. A light dusting is fine, anything more than that is too much. I gave up snowboarding long ago.

So glad I live in a different part of NY.
So glad I don't live in NY.
So glad I moved from that part of NY 20+ years ago.

Growing up in Rochester, the local news stations that had their own RADAR systems (as opposed to the ones that used Buffalo's) had the catch phrase "Don't get Buffaloed". You know its bad when your city name, when used as a verb, has a negative connotation...

Wegman's moved into VA about 5 years ago. We were so grateful. A Nick Tahou's replacement, however, has eluded us. My best friend from grade school worked at the one in Gates (which was across the street from Wegmans). Still remember my order:
Hamburger half plate on bun, no sauce, macaroni salad, homefries.​
