Snow closes the NY State Thruway
between Rochester and Buffalo

Overnight lake effect snow dumped upwards of two FEET of white stuff on the thruway forcing its closure. As of 3 AM Friday morning over 20 inches of snow were recorded at the Buffalo airport according to TV reports.

The NY crews are usually very, very good at keeping the thruway open so it must have really been coming down fast. It may have caught them a little short handed on the plow front, too. I mean, it IS only October 13th.

Winter comes early to the Northlands this year.
