Buffalo

I’m sure everyone heard about the record snowfall in Buffalo on Friday. It was headline news all across Canada and the US. For those of you who don’t know, my boyfriend Chris lives in Buffalo and he’s been living through what has now become a crisis in their city. The news stopped covering it after the snow stopped falling, but there are about 300,000 people still without power. Because the storm happened so early in the season, all the trees still had leaves on them, which made massive amounts of wet snow build up on the branches and become much to heavy for the trees to handle. Massive property damage, downed power lines and blocked roadways have now caused them to call in the National Guard for help.

Here are some pictures Chris took of the damage:
