Snowmageddon Apocalypse 2019


#1

Schools are closed the next two days, supposed to be brutal. Haven’t really had one of these in a while, I’m actually looking forward to it, lol


#2

Yep, management here just had the talk about when we close. Basically if there’s a travel ban we close, otherwise get your ass to work or use a vacation day. Heh.

Just the wind chills alone are going to make this pretty brutal. If we actually get the 12-24" of snow they’re calling for and the wind the roads will be impassable in many places. But it’s lake effect, so some narrow band will get it and a lot of other people won’t get nearly that much.


#3

I’m pumped for these next 2 days, hell let’s make it 3!


#4

Coworker just came back from lunch and said traffic is just crawling around Amherst but the roads aren’t that bad.

Disclaimer: He was pretty late coming back from lunch so this may just be an excuse. :slight_smile:


#5

South of main Street in Williamsville it’s perfectly fine.


#6

Roads were fine on my way home too. Millersport N. Forest area.


#7

Blows my mind how different the weather is here in Rochester.


#8

Wait until the wind churns the water on the lake and the warmer waters surface. The lake effect could go into beast mode.


#9


#10

Two days off, sick.


#11

Drive to work was pretty uneventful honestly. It’s only 2 miles but other than my side street most streets were plowed down to hardpack. Small fender bender at N.Forest and Millersport that caused me to take a shortcut through the unplowed gas station lot. Go blizzacks go! The Sally’s are already calling the office asking if we’re closed. Is there a travel ban? No? Then get your ass to work or take a vacation day.


#12

I don’t understand how they haven’t made it a requirement for either M+S rated tires or Snow tires. My Si with blizzaks+factory LSD is pretty damn good in the snow.


#13

lol

Wind is supposed to pick up though and start blowing this shit around. Last night in the city we had some wild gusts.


#14

We had to go to Toronto last friday night, left Rochester around 6:45. I-90 was the worst Ive ever seen it, under 20mph for quite a while from just before the Clarence rest stop. Took us an extra hour to get to the border. And then it was clear and 75mph the rest of the way.


#15

Visibility in this blizzard is terrible, that sun is blinding.


#16

Hahaha. You southtowns traditional snow belt people must be loving this for once.


#17

City is pretty messy right now. Southtowns forecast just changed to a possible 2 to 3 feet.

It’s crazy to see how many people are stuck because they have scrap tires


#18

M+S is an antiquated rating, should be at least 3PMSF.


#19

super clear where i be at


#20

It was clear in the city for a little bit, I just finished shoveling. Getting hit with another snow band now though and already got another inch. Can’t see much when the wind picks up.
