Posted on 11/27/2013 8:58:06 AM PST by gasport
This morning at 6am CNN reported that a winter storm had delivered a leveling blow to Buffalo. The reporter was stationed on what looked to be Delaware Avenue in the city, where there appeared to be no sign of battering. The reporter then stated that more snow was on the way. Then, the same reporter ended up in Amherst at 8am, showing the debilitating effects that the storm had caused. When he reached down to the grown, there might have been three inches of light fluffy snow. There are also reports of patches of slick black ice, stated the reporter, and heavy snow on the power lines. The camera then panned upwards to reveal intact power lines covered with a dusting of snow.

Where's the federal aid?
It snows in Buffalo. Wow, that’s crazy.
Mmmmmmmmm battered buffalo
It's ho hum at this point in eastern MA as well, although there's a ways to go before its over.
I did college in Buffalo. I would set my alarm back an hour to give myself time to dig out the car in the morning. Put hair on my chest.
It’s 30 degrees F in New Orleans. it’s not even Winter yet
Global warming is a hoax. Will idiot democrat voters finally realize their beloved news media and their beloved government have been lying to them for 30 years about global warming?
for 30 years the news media and scientists and gov have been yelling global warming . but there’s been no warming only cooling. no sea levels rising from melting ice caps.global warming is a hoax. this has been the coldest year I remember here( no hurricanes etc.) . The Sun’s cycle says this is only the beginning of a little Ice Age. (look up solar cycle 24 and 25)
will idiot democrats finally realize their news media and government have been lying to them and what else about?
It’s gorgeous here, actually! A few inches fell and it’s that lovely snow that sits on the tree branches “just so” and looks like a scene out of Currier & Ives. It’s also clear visibility and the roads are clear.
There was NO storm here. What we woke up to this morning is child’s play. Idiots.
Granted, I DO actually fear weather of any kind but I should be an anomaly. (:
Not only that, but it snows a LOT. Sometimes from mid-November until mid-April with a few days reprieve here and there.
I grew up in North Dakota and thought our winters were second to none, for the lower 48 at least. And while our winters were certainly colder than Buffalo on average, we seldom got nearly as much snow.
The only news I read is carefully selected on the interwebs. AFTER I browse FR.
The short answer is no. There is a reason that idiots are idiots.
The Swedes have a saying "there is no such thing as bad weather just bad clothes". And they live it.
All that said, I left the NE and moved to the desert where I now layer up if it is 60 degrees. (;
>> Mmmmmmmmm battered buffalo
The only thing getting battered these days in Buffalo are the Sabres!
Such big words! Does “acclimate” mean “freeze your butt off”?
I’m dying down here in Virginia. I miss wondering which car is mine in the parking lot.
It pays to be on the east side of a great lake and Buffalo is "blessed" that way. But if you want to see lake effect snow you have to go to Syracuse or Watertown. Syracuse almost always wins the Most Snow in NY crown every year (Watertown is just too small to be counted).
This guy acclimated....
I used to have to go pick my brother up at syracuse for Christmas because his car was buried under about 6’ of snow by christmas break.
Bush and Cheney
When the rain comes,
they run and hide their heads.
They might as well be dead.
When the rain comes,
when the rain comes,
You forgot the Bills.
four inches is a battering? YAWN! I got a whopping 4” and thought about not even plowing. How ridiculous.
Yes the Climate Change Channel has labeled this catastrophe
Winter Storm Boreas.
Laugh if you like, but Joe Bastardi is already predicting “snowmageddon” for Christmas.
Better start buying bread and milk right now.
Yes, ain't it. Not too long ago I read that an excavation near Buffalo uncovered evidence that Palm trees once grew here. Who knew??
No I didn’t. The Bills had to rest for a week after DESTROYING the Jets last week. :-)) They will be just fine. Not to worry...
We had icing conditions here in orange county ny.
Funny thing: not a single salt truck to be seen all day despite dozens of accidents caused by ice and driver misadventure.
The salt trucks came out finally at...10 pm.
After the ice gave way to rain and temps above 34°F.
Way to go roadcrews.
Way to go.
Can’t wait to see how long it takes the dopes here to remember how to drive in even light piddling crap like that.
I grew up in Orchard Park(where the Bills play) and then went to school at SU. I had a buddy who grew up in Lowville, NY up on the Tug Hill Plateau. Lowville and Oswego were the worst in the state for snow/wind.
For those of you unfamiliar with the area. The Tug Hill Plateau is right at the eastern end of Lake Ontario. It is the blank area on the map about 30 miles across where there are no roads.
At SUNY Oswego, which is right on the southeastern shore of Lake Ontario, they actually have tunnels and ropes between the campus buildings so you will not get blown away during the winter storms. SU had tunnels over all the steps on campus so they would not have to shovel them in the winter.
They did need to shovel off the roof of the Carrier Dome several times a season.
Another fact that most people do not know is that Lake Erie eventually freezes over almost every year(it is only 30’ deep on average). The rest of the Great Lakes never freeze over. Therefore, the land masses downwind from them get lake effect snow ALL winter. The worst place of all is the upper peninsula of Michigan.
My mom still lives in Orchard Park(about 15 miles south of Buffalo). This is the northern edge of the snow belt off of Lake Erie. The worst area is down closer to the PA border.
My brother in Florida asked me when they started naming the winter storms that hit the USA. I let him know it was idiots that wanted to push global warming and the Government to make it sound as if any type of weather is a crisis situation. up here in the UP of Michigan, we get lake effect snow squalls that drop over 4 inches, and no one is screaming that we are blown away.
Orchard Park had 6-8” as of 10 am this am when I spoke to my mom.
The Tug Hill town of Montague holds the single day New York State record of snowfall 77 inches! Another Tug Hill town (Hooker) got 466.9 inches (about 39 feet) of snow during 76-77.
Let alone outside.
I keep the Albany weather on my phone. I like to look at it if I even think I am having a bad day. Just as a reminder, things can always be worse.
“four inches is a battering? YAWN! I got a whopping 4 and thought about not even plowing. How ridiculous.”
No kidding! This morning 5:20am the local DFW news station reported a “battering storm” headed for Buffalo NY. The camera shot showed a downtown area, well lit that had a bit of frost on the street.
YOU F’n kidding me? On DFW TX local news they report on light snow in NY? It just goes to show you the news maggots are feeding off of the same feed trough of information/propaganda.
Scare the masses.
Blame it on
global warming climate change.
“Blow”,’battering” and ‘dangerous’ do not mean what you think they mean. If the computer says it happened-IT HAPPENED! Reality MUST be made to match predictions!
Those inch deep blizzards will kill ya. Apply to FEMA now!
“Does this disaster have a name yet? Where’s the federal aid?”
There’ll be no federal aid. Snow is white and Soetoro hates the color white.
There are also reports of patches of slick black ice,
When will this overt racism end? Quick someone call Jesse and Al!
Jesse and Al?
Are you saying it was a misprint of "slick black arse"?
Are you saying it was a misprint of “slick black arse”?
Well no, but now that you put that out there it does seem to be an apt description of both Jesse and Al.
About 40 yrs ago, on my way to a suburb of Redfield, I spent a few snowstorm hours at Earl’s Grill & Bar in Pulaski.
This can give some perspective on snow in upstate NY.
” (Hooker) got 466.9 inches (about 39 feet)”
6 inches at a time?
Does anyone proofread anymore? If so, do they know how to spell?
