We're experience a similar weather pattern. Also, it was apparently below freezing somewhere in every one of the 50 states: http://www.cnn.com/2014/11/18/us/col...html?hpt=hp_t2
I'm 15-20 minutes south of Buffalo. We have at least 2'. But, I have food, beer, and power, so I'll get by. Most of the city barely has any snow, in fact the hockey game was still on, despite areas 10 minutes away having driving bans and completely impassable roads. My backyard:

Some real good ones in there.
My sister stopped by our place on the way home too uncomfortable with driving the rest of the way. I fired up the Legacy and made the trip there and back. Nokians worked great.
Not quite 6ft yet but we've had a LOT of snow and it's blowing around into big drifts on the road, luckily it's very soft and fluffy. No plows have been out in the whole county.
I hope this stops soon and they start plowing. It's an hour long drive for my Fiancé to work in a few hours.
My backyard (glass patio table for reference):
We didn't get hit with as much snow as we did cold. Winds had to have been around 50 mph, and I don't think it got above 10 degrees all day.
It's not fun trying to drive a car on summer tires, on ice, through 50 mph winds.
Never been to Buffalo but might be going there for a business trip in February. Think I'm gonna look for the closest hotel to the facility so I can just walk there if it's this bad.
I was gonna make a joke about this:
...and then realized they actually make "professional" ones:
Do people actually wear these?
Wow, I was complaining about getting 6" of snow. Last night we had a new record low of 10F and the wind has been about 20-30 MPH for days.
Hope this winter isn't like last year.
Edit: After looking at the pictures from Buffalo, I feel like a *****.

If it's so bad that cars can't move, would you really want to try and walk what might be a long distance to those houses and businesses? At least in the car you can stay out of the elements.
I give my wife a hard time for putting a couple of fleece blankets, a box of granola bars and bottles of water in each car but for times like these it makes sense.
I am looking for a job in Transportation, Logistics, Distribution or International Trade. Analysis, Planning, Operations.
My fav is all the morons down here in the tri-state area saying they are glad the storm "missed us"
My GF is from western NY and showed me a video that her aunt posted (lives in Hamburg) of her husband doing a belly flop into the snow. There was easily 4 feet of snow in their backyard.
The sheer amount of snow that you can get off of a powerful lake effect band is pretty freaky. I lived in Oswego, NY for a few years and my last winter there we got 6' over the course of 3 days or so. Shutdown the university. 10 miles east of Oswego got 10'.
Buffalo gets hit hard earlier in the season and once Lake Erie freezes up the lake-effect machine dies off. But Lake Ontario is considerably deeper and almost never fully freezes over and lake effect off of it goes all the way through the winter. IIRC that particular lake effect event in Oswego was late Feb/early March.
Yup, from Buffalo (hamburg actually) and all I can do is laugh at it! Got the hell out of there over 6 years ago and never looked back. I refuse to go visit my parents of anyone acutally from Novemeber - April. Its to damn cold! Why my parents don't move to Alanta where my brother and I are, I don't get!
Also, whats up Sak? Hows it going?
It used to happen a lot when I was a kid, growing up in Sylvan Beach we'd get nothing but school would be closed because Camden 10 miles north got the worst of it.
