There are No Hurricanes in Buffalo

30 Jan

I like to call it a snowicane. A Hurricane with snow. With the wind gusts down here by the lake, it’s the one time I can say that my weight is an advantage, because everyone else is getting blown around by the wind. I didn’t realize the temperature had dropped as dramatically as it did:

A wicked winter windstorm … packing gusts up to 70 mph and accompanied by a temperature drop of 21 degrees in just one hour … ripped through the region early today, prompting virtually all area schools to close and knocking out electric power for roughly 70,000 customers.

We lost power for some time this morning, but it’s back on now. There also appears to be a band of lake snow from about Lackawanna to Batavia. How is it by you?

    I’m out near the Ford plan on Rt. 5. It basically goes from white-out to sunny to white-out again. It’s done this in a cycle all day.

    EVERY SINGLE USAir flight from Philly to Buffalo was cancelled today, so I caught a flight to Erie, PA and rented a car to drive through….nothing…all 90 miles to Buffalo. Not a single flake.

    It was WICKED in the wide-open pastures of Wheatfield yesterday! Winds were clocked at between 75 and 80 MPH! I stayed home because I was afraid that I’d go to work and return to a pile of debris that was once my house.
