The actual problem is getting people to clear out the stadium. They pay people to clear it out, but nobody is going to be able to get around for awhile down there. It has been snowing 3-4 inches per hour over the stadium since last night. When Buffalo shuts down, it is the real deal.


Just give a few fans flamethrowers and let them go wild. 🤣

I wound literally start crying. I sometimes have to shovel a 1/4 mile driveway and even when it's 6" or so, it just seems hopeless. We haven't had anything bad since I was a kid where the drifts were over 4 feet.

That's unreal what's going on around Buffalo right now.

I have no real point of reference of how much snow is too much cause like one snowflake would be a miracle here. But those images of Buffalo and do look insane.

Buffalo is pretty much shut down for two weeks. This is an insane storm, and it’s November. This is history making.

Eventually it becomes a problem of where to put it. We all know how to plow snow, but in some of those hardest hit areas, they'll need to load the snow on trucks and move it. It just becomes a simple problem of volume. You run out of places to pile it.

The airport recorded 30+ inches, and some places are 65+.

You can't see over the snow drifts to back out. It is like coming out of a tunnel. You just have to hope someone isn't coming full speed.

It is supposed to get above freezing by Monday, so things will start to melt (which will cause flooding)

I own a roof rake to keep my patio and awnings from collapsing. A 10 foot pole with a flat piece of metal at 90 degrees to pull snow off. And yes, it all comes and smashes me in the face, but it is better than the whole roof coming down.

This is below half of what others got.

Be careful doing that stuff. I've been on a ladder and had a miniature avalanche take me down and had almost 3' of snow on top of me.

I made mine out of 1 ¹/⁴" pvc pipes I can screw together to make it 25' and made the end out of a 4" pvc pipe cut in half to pull snow down.

Would be neat if they could Train a huge shipment of snow westward.

Like dump the s*** in the low dry Mississippi.

The hilarious thing is last time they built a massive wall with it, it stuck around until like July. Pack enough snow in a big enough pile and it turns into rock.

People were taking pictures while standing on what was left of the pile while watching July 4th fireworks.
