    Springville does really well. My friend had a house in West Falls which is close to East Aurora and would get a ton of snow as well.

    Even with a almost completely frozen lake you can still get some good lake effect snow. Here is a study done about it https://journals.ametsoc.org/doi/full/10.1175/2007MWR2310.1

    These noaa erie ice maps always seem to be way off when compared to satellite views(when possible)

    I completely agree. There are a lot of people not from the area traveling on the 90 that aren't prepared to deal with the weather or aren't used to driving in bad conditions.

    It's just my personal opinion but I think they are basically pressured into going higher with amounts after they missed that blizzard which caused that huge accident on the 90 that at least 1 died in

    When I go to the F1 race I'll make sure to. Have always wanted to see Montreal so pretty excited to finally be taking the trip.

    Yea I can't imagine the mess a city like Toronto would be. Buffalo is a big enough shit show with roads as it is.

    Thanks for finding that. I couldn't remember the exact details. That link I posted is a really good read on ice coverage and lake effect off Erie, here is the link https://journals.ametsoc.org/doi/10.1175/2007MWR2310.1

    wasn't it just last year we had that surprise event that NWS issued a blizzard warning for? They didn't think the lake could support anything with the ice cover and only issued a squall warning at first just found this which seems like a interesting read https://journals.ametsoc.org/doi/10.1175/2007MWR2310.1

    I'm in Cheektowaga and half a mile from West Seneca and Buffalo(Harlem and William St. area) and I personally would consider the airport part of the town as northern Erie. Lake effect events are so rare for grand island and tonawanda that it's not really a drought but more like the expectation.

    situations like this are perfect to chase. Hardly anyone on the road and you aren't going to be in anyone's way . I personally don't like it when people are out chasing and adding to gridlock which isn't a issue today.I'd suffer through work because it doesn't get much better

    when it gets that cold out that almost impossible to clean up the roads. Plows get the majority off snow and then the salt gets the rest but when it's that cold the salts efficiency is so low they can't really do anything but major roads.

    Variance is the bastard of life. The Metro needs almost a perfect wind so it's not that surprising it doesn't get that many big events. South Cheektowaga and West Seneca are close to the metro but just that little bit gives them a lot more flexibility which only keeps increasing the further south you go until you hit ski country
