They're measuring snow in feet, not inches, today in and around Buffalo, reports AP. And while that's not too rare for western New York, today's storm off Lake Erie is eliciting lots of quotes like this one from West Seneca highway chief Greg Zimmerman to the Buffalo News: "It's one of the worst I've ever seen." Ten of his 22 plows were stuck this afternoon, with the snow at almost 4 feet and no letup in sight. Up to 2 more feet was possible in areas south of Buffalo tonight, reports WKBW. The storm shut down a 132-mile stretch of the state Thruway. (Read more Buffalo stories.)
