A 132-mile section of the New York State Thruway (Interstate 90) from exits 46 through 61 was forced to shut down for several days. A stretch of the Niagara Thruway (Interstate 190) southbound from Niagara Falls (exit 16) to the Interstate-90 interchange was also shut down. Western New York dealt with two periods of thundersnow, both late Monday into Tuesday, then again just about two days later. Snowfall rates were estimated as high as six inches per hour.

FYI: a.] Much current popular opinion assumes that the city of "Buffalo" could not have been named after the animal so representative of North America, because buffalo (bison) supposedly never lived in what is now New York State. However, the historical evidence indicates that buffalo were widespread and well known during colonial times in eastern North America, including the area of the current city of Buffalo. - Wikipedia
b.] "The New York Times has declared that Buffalo is one of the top cities in America for architecture. Approximately 80 sites are included on the National Register of Historic Places. All of the major American architects of the 19th and early 20th century built masterpieces in Buffalo, most of which are still standing. There are several buildings by Frank Lloyd Wright, including the Darwin D. Martin House, George Barton House, William R. Heath House, Walter V. Davidson House, The Graycliff Estate, as well as the now demolished Larkin Administration Building". - Wikipedia
