    I have a snow day tomorrow. Plenty of pinball tasks I can catch up on. An actual travel ban in Western N.Y. Buffalo has its perks.
    A snow day never gets old.

    Pictures of an actual snow day. Difficult to capture the glory.

    I'm thinking about going to the Bills/Browns game at Ford Field on Sunday. I can finally have a chance to root for a winner.

    Not gonna lie, an outside grind it out Bills vs Browns game (see Nick Chubb) in snowy Buffalo that’s turned into a domed Detroit game? I see things turning around for the Bills. Bet the over.

    I was living in Depew NY for the Snowvember storm of 2014 with my soon-to-be wife. First day there was no sunshine, only darkness and snow. Never seen anything like it, it was like the apocalypse. The next day we looked out, the snow was higher than our cars. They had to bring in bulldozers from North Carolina to dig out the streets. The school I taught at was closed for TWO WEEKS to get all of the snow off of the roof. It was incredible. Buffalo perks, for sure

    Ah, good times.
    A snow day is the pinball equivalent of hitting the slot machine scoop on TZ with the “?” lit to start LITZ.

    Seriously, this is like roof collapsing levels of snow if you get the amounts they are predicting? In all seriousness, is that actually something that people think about?

    #8 1 year ago

    You Americans have such quaint streets and neighborhoods. We're all crammed in like sardines on our little island.

    The worst one I remember, non blizzard mind you, was a lake effect storm that came in October before trees dropped their leaves. The snow was so heavy, and the leaves increased the amount of snow in the trees so much, you could literally hear branches snapping off trees. Landed on houses and cars. I can’t really think of times the snow lead to roofs collapsing.

    #10 1 year ago

    I jest a little of course, but it sure causes a double take when you hear a reporter say “4 to 5 feet” of snow like it’s no big. Lol.

    Meteorologists can’t always be right.

    That’s it?!

    More coming?

    Bring back the football game!

    The Bills play in Orchard Park which is like 20 minutes south of Buffalo. That area always gets more snow than the City of Buffalo. This is the forecast for Highmark Stadium where the Bills play.

    Yeah for the Snowvember storm my house was buried (slightly southeast of the city) but Buff State had inches, my wife had a final on that day and they still held class. Craziness...

    How’s you like that to be your seat at the Bills game Sunday if they had kept the game in Buffalo?

    i went to SUNY Oswego, right on the lake as well. Man do i miss those crazy snow squalls. Thankfully spent all 4 years w a 4WD Wrangler, so i could still get anywhere.

    Now we’re talkin’. Orchard Park, a Buffalo suburb where the Bills play their home games, got 59” of snow in 24 hours. I’m told that’s a NY State record for 24 hours. Im gonna keep working on my Slugfest project.

    I think this says it all.

    Wow, a can is what, 6 inches? So 54 inches and counting?

    Kevin submitted your league night cancelation to the local news Mr. Mank. They were happy to put the word out

    I’ll tolerate six feet of snow, a travel ban, stores closed, food supplies getting low, but when Pinball League night gets canceled, that’s where I draw the line.

    Roofs do indeed collapse from too much snow.
