Get out the shovels and sleds; Old Man Winter has officially arrived in the Mid-West and Northeastern states. With nearly six feet of snow on the ground in Buffalo, it appears that this winter is going to be a recording breaking on as well. Snow fell from Missouri all the way up into the New England states. Some got a dusting while others had feet piled on them like what Sam Tabar had to deal with at his house.
The only way to get away from the wrath of winter is to move, move out of its way and perhaps down South. The Farmer’s Almanac predicted this one would be extra cold with lots of precipitation, and it looks as if the good book is very accurate thus far. What’s even sadder is there has been seven deaths in this monster storm in the NY state area. With more snow expected soon and temperatures that are well below the freezing mark, it appears that it’s going to get worse before it gets better.
Lake Effects are also make the snow situation worse. While Buffalo was one area hard hit, Cleveland, Ohio and others were not left out. With more than 50% of the states having some sort of snow coverage, residents are struggling to cope. Safety workers are working double shifts and a state of emergency has been declared in many areas. 230 truckloads of snow were removed from Buffalo. If this is just the beginning, what will the end look like?
