Almost the entire American midwest and northeast have been hit hard by the winter weather that started on Friday, December 23, 2022. The weather truly left its mark on the Buffalo area with strong winds, whiteout conditions, below-freezing temperatures, and sub-zero windchill which knocked out power to thousands around the area and left the entire region paralyzed.

Travel around the area has been impossible as many roads are simply impassable, which also caused emergency services to not be able to respond to calls for help with nearly 66% of their vehicles stuck in the snow. In addition to roads being in horrible shape, the Buffalo Aiport, along with Metro Bus & Metro Rail services were also suspended and have yet to be restored. Nearly all businesses remain closed as well due to the inability to get just about anywhere.

This all is related to the serious amount of snow that has fallen since the storm started. Weather officials expected there to be at least 3 feet of snow on the ground in Buffalo and surrounding areas. The National Weather Service Buffalo issued an update today with snowfall totals from all over the 716.

More than 4 feet of snow has fallen at the Buffalo Airport, with areas like Williamsville, Amherst, Kenmore, and several other communities boasting at least 24 or more inches of snow.

So the good news, for now, is that the blizzard is officially over, but the bad news is the Buffalo snow machine is going to be hard at work for at least another day or two.
