Friday the 13th, October 2006 - Lake Effect snow storm of 2 feet is most on record for month ever in WNY. Weather Channel Blog -

Buffalo actually averages about 30 days of snowfall a year and about 100 inches of total snow. Ski country south of Buffalo receives an average of
180 inches of snow each winter making it one of the best winter recreation centers in the northeastern USA. There is snowboarding, tubing, cross country
skiing, ice skating, ice fishing, sledding and tobogganing activities to enjoy. Lake Erie waters usually freeze over, when they don't it can result in a
blizzard. The region is well prepared to deal with this though, so shopping or traveling the major roadways like the Skyway and Peace Bridge is not an issue.
The Buffalo stereotype is very over rated. The four seasons here are actually very beautiful. This region is unique in it's location and climate.
This diversity strengthens us as we do have a gorgeous summer, fall and spring seasons. Sure we have to deal with some cold and occasional blizzard, but
rarely an earthquake, tornado or other natural disasters. "If you don't like the weather in Buffalo, wait five minutes." Famous quote from past resident
Buffalo does still hold the record for the snowiest city in the country, maintaining the all-time high for snowfall in a single season with 199 inches
(about 16.5 feet!), all of which accumulated during the winter of 1976-77.
