I'm no meteorologist or anything, but this ain't right.
Two feet of snow has caused Buffalo to come to a grinding halt. Normally, two feet of snow is no big deal in Buffalo, but this snow fell on OCTOBER 12th. The snow is really wet and heavy, almost slush. Because the trees still have all their leaves, the snow had lots of surface area for clinging. The snow turned out to be too heavy a burden for the poor trees. The tree lined streets are total chaos. All night last night the storm brewed and limbs fell. Almost nobody in Buffalo has power and as a result, almost no one has heat. Because the problem is so wide spread and so many trees fell on so many power-lines, we have been told not to expect electricity until Tuesday. TUESDAY!
By my calculations, today is Friday. Friday the 13th. Tuesday is in FOUR DAYS!
I have lived in winter climates my entire life and I have never before seen anything like this. Last night, I feel asleep to the sounds of howling wind, thunder, and falling trees.
What the hell?
