That is cool, too bad they couldn't just drain the lake for winter

i wish we could drain the lakes but nobody has figured that out yet. they put out "booms" in the river and that by buffalo and that make it skin over sooner then we dont get as much. but obviously too early to freeze now. there are some good pics to show what some in town are dealing with, i like the ones that people are trying to snow blow and they just dont have anywhere to put the snow. but this one is extra bad they have found 8 dead now and are getting hit again today in the south towns with another 2-4 ft. they have called in hundreds of dump truck contractors with loaders and are taking out one truck at a time, nothing else will go through it. the snow has been that heavy wet stuff and people are having windows, doors, and roofs cave in. so they are up there in single degree wind chills shoveling their roofs.

I heard some rumors last night that the Buffalo Bills stadium was going to pay anyone with a shovel $10 an hour to come shovel the stadium and they would get free tickets to the game. IMO, I think they should just postpone it.

they are going to have to postpone it im sure, there are travel bans and the place where the stadium is had the worst accumulation, and its going there today too. they havent gotten the peoples roads and cars out of the snow in that area yet let alone get hundreds of people in there to shovel. and the parking lots would need plowed which probably will have 5 to 10 feet not counting drifts. i wonder if they could move it to new york

I have seen some of the footage here, and I can't remember ever viewing anything that even comes close to 8 feet of snow before. Surely this must be a record dump of snow.
Tv is reporting now that a state of emergency has been declared. Troops with equipment/shovels/snowmobiles I suppose will be out helping to clear as well.
What really amazes me its that this storm left 8 feet in one area, yet on the other side of town they got minimal amounts. Very unique path of heavy snow.
I can only image how difficult it must be for those hard hit areas.
Shoveling your roof would be very dangerous and at this point pretty much necessary.
I wonder to get supplies, are you allowed to use a snowmobile to get around on roads there?

Usually in a state of emergency here in NY, some rules are thrown out the window or look the other way. If your using your quad or snowmobile to get to work or to get necessities, they don't mind. Then again, if push came to shove, the state can take away too.

I remember back in the early day of 80'* early 90'*, we had a motor club called the "Mud Hunters" If roads were closed due to snow, they were the only ones allowed out on the streets because they were helping people that were stranded or the elderly get food and stuff. We don't see them anymore.

the people who have them are helping, the news showed they setup a commend post at a big fire hall and a big club is taking people to the hospital and prescriptions and food to the elderly, meals on wheels has not been able to get anywhere this whole week. the police and fire rescue folks have their own. even in our little town they have a polaris with tracks. im sure they get deals on this stuff. but the biggest problem with this storm is it dumped alot in pretty populated areas and city areas, people here dont have sno mobiles or anything like that. they showed on the news people walking miles to the grocery store for beer and milk. apparently in buffalo those are the two most purchased items.

they got all the cars and big trucks off the expressways yesterday. they tell people to stay off and stay home but they havent hardly done anything with the normal main roads and people get stuck on those, so they are complaining about that on the news and stuff saying they are going to ticket them because people abandon the cars because no one can get them towed out. but it seems like some people have to get to their houses and to essential jobs and that so how else are they going to get there. seems like it could be manged better. i think i would just keep the highways open and focus on cleaning those first. you got big trucks and that on city streets and they get stuck and nobody can go anywhere
