Lake-Effect Snow

Lake-effect SnowThis morning’s lake-effect snowfall through downtown Buffalo and eastern suburbs seems to have caught city and county snow plow drivers off-guard.

Why is that?  Wasn’t this predicted yesterday night?  Couldn’t the sand and salt trucks at least have been out to put something down, just in case the snow decided to move further north than anticipated, which it did?  I understand that the Thruway was wet but clean, as the Thruway plows did get out early.  But the local plows not getting to the Kensington, or Genesee Street – that’s unacceptable given the lead time.

The four-car collision at the intersection of the Kensington and Genesee Street was a vivid reminder to slow down today. It doesn’t look like we’re going to get much timely help from city and county plows.

On the bright side:  It sure is pretty out there.

    Yeah, it’s not like they wouldn’t have been prepared. I thought that only happened to FEMA during hurricanes.
