Lake Effect Snow Passes Through WNY

Lake Effect Snow Passes Through WNY

BUFFALO, NY - Well, it wasn't everything it was cracked up to be but we did see the first somewhat substantial snowfall of the season on Friday. Roads were deceptively slippery, however, and there were a number of fender benders and rollvovers this morning, though none resulting in significant injuries.
