I just saw him the other day at Starbucks.

I wonder if he just didn’t have any notice that the weather was going to be so bad. I can’t remember if he had a phone or not.

Impressive! I thought I had some decent overhang on my garage. Maybe I’ll take a snap of it tomorrow while I’m off again.

RIP to the homeless guy, pretty sure I just saw him earlier this month at the walker center.

Wow he’d been out there since the 70’s?

He was given the option of a hotel for the night but instead slept in this…

Reading his story and how it ended is sad but at the same time makes you proud of WNY because you see that a lot of people tried to help this guy.

I don’t know if any of you followed the link to the 1997 story on him but it’s worth the read:

Hows the ice out there this am? I just saw a video of a tractor trailer sliding sideways on the 190.

So did the ice boom break or was the water level / wind speed so high ice went over it?

Probably a combination of both. It’s designed to sink and let the ice go over the top if the wind pushes the ice too hard. But I did read that some sections had broken free.

Honestly, it’s great news for the health of the river. That ice flow will dredge a lot of the muck out of the shallows, something that we prevented nature from doing with the boom. Bad news for GI and Tonawanda dock owners though.
