More than 70 inches of snow are expected in parts of Buffalo before it's over, but Mayor Byron Brown insisted "the city is open, the city is operational with the exception of South Buffalo." Even the Buffalo Sabres would take the ice Tuesday night.
"This storm is basically a knife that went right through the heart of Erie County," said Erie County Executive Mark Poloncarz. "I can't remember and I don't think anyone else can remember this much snow falling in this short a period."
The snow left people stranded in cars, turned roadways into parking lows and forced some emergency responders to rely on snowmobiles provided by volunteers. It blanketed the area at a rate of three to five inches an hour.
