Snow storm today…

13 Oct

We had a little adventure last night in the Buffalo, NY area. Its October 13th, and we got 22 inches of snow last night. Even for Buffalo that’s a record. The most snow we’ve ever gotten in an October storm before was 6 inches in the early 1900’s. It was a very wet snow that clung to trees, often building up enough weight to snap branches and whole tree in half. That brought down many power lines, and now the area has 300,000 people without power at the moment. I was lucky enough to get my power back around 5:30PM today after loosing it as 11:20PM last night. Others aren’t so lucky…

    My grandparents say that they called it a “Hurricane Blizzard”, since it was really stormy and windy and such. Meanwhile, here at RIT, the Rochester Weather Machine protects us from such things. Though we did get some snow a few nights ago.
