People across Buffalo, New York and surrounding metro areas are waking up Saturday morning to Snowmageddon which has dumped between 5-6 feet of snow over the past few days.
Heavy snowfall “will result in near-zero visibility, extremely difficult travel, damage to infrastructure, and may paralyze the hardest-hit communities,” the Weather Prediction Center’s latest issue warned.
An insane amount of snow has been dumped at Highmark Stadium, where the Buffalo Bills play, located in Orchard Park, New York, in the Southtowns of the Buffalo metro area. The latest reports recorded 77 inches, or about 6.5 feet.
“Can you imagine 60-70 inches of snow in 24 hours!? That 66” at Orchard Park (where the Buffalo Bills play) can be verified as a 24-hour record for New York State. (The US record is 75.6 inches at Silver Lake, Colorado on April 15, 1921),” tweeted meteorologist Matthew Capucci.
Here’s what people in western New York woke up to this morning:

Before what we thought would be a historic storm, we wrote A “crippling snowfall” can “cripple” a buffalo with feet of snow. And the “New York declares a state of emergency before Snowmageddon,” She suggests readers in the area get supplies and take cover.
