OK, Grand Rapids, Michigan is the first city to pile up 2 feet of snowfall this season. They added another 1.2 inches to their snow lead putting Grand Rapids snow totals at 24.6 inches for the 2014-2015 snow season. Erie, Pa and South Bend, Indiana are hanging right with them and it’s still a close snow race. Buffalo is on the move breaking into the top 5 for the first time this season.
I was looking at some of the snow totals around the Buffalo area and was thinking that if this epic lake effect snow hit the Buffalo airport we probably could have called it a wrap for the season. Some of the cities south of Buffalo and just several miles away are reporting 60 + inches of snowfall. I think a 4 foot lead would be pretty hard to catch even for the normal top snowiest big cities in the country. That said it is a pretty serious situation going on in the are and here is what I posted on the New York snow contest site, the Golden Snowball last night. I should be able to get another update in a little later. Have a great day
OK, I normally try to keep the snow site fun after all that’s what it’s all about. Having fun and maybe helping the winter season pass by a little faster. That said what’s going on in the surrounding Buffalo area is I think one of the most serious situations I have seen. You won’t hear me say this too often but I do hope the snow stops soon in the Buffalo area.
From Angelo – “Just wanted to update you guys, official snow fall in my town of Lancaster over last 2 days is 73 inches, south buffalo has about 65 on the ground. Airport is on the border of the heavy snow line but should receive another foot tonight and tomorrow. Lancaster is looking at another 20 plus inches in the same time frame. Maybe we can reach that magic number of 100 inches! In all seriousness this storm has claimed 7 lives so far and has collapsed a number of roofs and with the additional snow and 50 degree temps we will be seeing Sunday through Tuesday I’m sure we will be seeing even more collapses and major flooding. Wish us luck!”
Me – “Hey Angelo, Wow is still the only word that comes to mind. It’s cool seeing the numbers, pictures and videos but then again I wish I wasn’t seeing them because I know how serious the situation is there and all around there. Definitely Good Luck to all of you effected and I hope there are no more deaths from this unbelievable snowfall. My thought s and Yes prayers are with all of you. I’m not looking forward to what we will most likely be reading once the temps start going up. Stay Safe,”
I wish Nothing but the best to our friends in the Buffalo area
