For me personally, this storm was even more of a bust that the 2019 Blizzard Of Clods. If it wasn't for the Ice Boom breaking, all you'd have was a windy day where some trees fell over. WHOOPITY-DOO!!!

It's still basically nothing at my house, but here's an example of the driving conditions from when I was just out running errands and to be honest, this is a normal occurrence in the Buffalo area:

It's windy, but nothing major & I still don't know when those 3-6" of snow are supposed to get here:

It's picking up a bit & the power did go out for about 20 seconds:

I'm kinda I mean, my flag is barely moving:
2019-02-24 6:19 PM EST This should be interesting...
2019-02-24 2:55 PM EST This is why you don't go out empty when it's really windy

2019-02-24 2:27 PM EST Travel Advisory In Effect
Effective immediately I am issuing a Travel Advisory for all of @ErieCountyNY. This is NOT a driving ban but no unnecessary travel is advised. Conditions are very poor, especially near the Lake. Lots of debris is blowing around and we are getting more reports of trees/poles down. pic.twitter.com/Gwkfio3qya

All week, they've been calling for winds of 30 to 40 mph with gusts up to 75 mph for today. Yesterday they threw in 3 to 6 inches of snow. While we won't technically be defined as a Hurricane because those require sustained winds of 75mph, we should get gusts that high. When it does get cold enough to snow, it will become our 2nd Blizzard of the year (see 2019 Blizzard Of Clods). So, I re-registered this domain HurricaneBlizzard.com which I had back in 2014, and I will post updates on here simply to cause panic Anytime there's a big windstorm (with or without snow) they close a portion of Rt 5 called The Skyway because it's right on the lake & pretty high, so driving on it is a nightmare (I know). What I don't think they've ever done is announce that it'll be closed the day before the storm. I don't think it's because it's going to be the worst storm ever, instead I think they're being way over protective. So, stay tuned for updates on what I'm sure will be along the lines of a drumpster fire caused by a train wreck.
