36 Pictures That Show How Extremely Wild The Snow Is In Buffalo, New York

We're talking over six feet of snow. I didn't even know that was possible.

1. In case you didn't know, parts of Buffalo, New York have gotten over six feet of snow (!!!!).

2. That's over 70 inches of snow!!

77 INCHES of snow now reported in Orchard Park, NY. The lake effect snow band has shifted north, but this is still an insane amount for an event that is still not over. https://t.co/AZ0liyd8RT

3. I'm used to seeing weather reports like this in inches, not in FEET.

Incredible snowfall totals coming in this morning from the deadly lake effect snow event in western NY. 66" in Orchard Park within 24 hours breaks the New York record for 24-hour snowfall... The national 24-hour snowfall record is 75.8 inches falling in Colorado in 1921. @WNYT

4. The lake effect snow started on Friday, and it looked like a literal wall.

5. And now, we're seeing pictures come out of Buffalo that are just straight up surreal looking.

Right down the road from the stadium & still projected 36 more inches in the next 24 hours. Maybe it wise to push the game ? #GoBills #BillsMafia #Snowmageddon #BuffaloStorm2022 #beon2 @WGRZ

6. It's just mountains of snow.

‼️UPDATE: from #Hamburg. My friend’s brother, Dave Culligan, took these moments ago. 47” of snow and counting. #LakeEffectSnow #Buffalo #snow #nywx

The view from my brother’s UPSTAIRS window. That’s how much snow they have on the roof of their garage. #Buffalo

13. How is this even real?

@uSTADIUM It's bad by the stadium. Lake effect hits south of the city like 10x worse than north of the city. I can still see my grass in the northtowns but I've got friends in orchard park who got more than 4 feet who open their door to a wall of snow lol

14. People are measuring the snow in *creative* ways.

Buffalo is getting some weather. 9 cans high and counting.

Twitter: @GeneseeBrewery

15. Beer cans being a popular one.

@LabattUSA Only measuring device(s) I need. #makeitstop #BuffaloStorm2022

16. But my personal favorite is this person who measured it in dogs.

17. Everything is just unrecognizable.

There's actually a car buried under this mountain of snow in Hamburg New York

18. People in Buffalo are comparing the 77" of snow to the height of football player Josh Allen.

Snow total in Orchard Park hit 77” as of this morning!! That’s as tall as Josh Allen😎 #GoBills #Snovember2022

Twitter: @evelynwoz2024

That's as tall as this large man.

33. And the wildest part is that MORE snow is forecasted to fall.

My mom in Orchard Park, NY has gotten just a little bit of snow this weekend
