Dug out in Buffalo?

Can anyone in that region fill us in as to how the process is going up there? I hope everyone has been safe and injury free. We never see that magnitude of snow down here. Any reported structure fires that anyone knows of? That would be a complete nightmare.

Keep us all posted guys. Stay safe.

I've seen a handful of larger buildings (mainly flatroofs) collapsed. I've lived here all my life and have seen the 2-3' snows but not 84" all at once. It was tough for sure. I was shoveling my roof constantly, keeping the driveway clear, and wondering when it would all stop. Finally a loader came through but that was only because one of my neighbors roofs was showing signs of possible collapse. With the temperature to get to 60 today there will be some major flooding I presume. Trees and landscapes are decimated for sure. 13 people lost their lives in this storm.

I will take this over hurricanes, tornados, earthquakes, forest fires, or anything else. I can move the snow out of the way and it will eventually melt away.

Thanks for the info. Hadn't heard about the roof collapses. I'm with you. Can't drown in it, can't get blown away by it, can't get burned by it.
Glad you made out ok. Best of luck. Please keep us posted

Snow pack is rapidly disappearing with warm temps and rain revealing some of the tree carnage and other damage.
