Yikes!  I complain about the drivers here, but boy is the video above crazy.  Everyone on the street (cars, bikes, mopeds, peds, etc.) seem clueless.

Have you ever seen a show called top gear? If not, I recommend searching for the NON BBC AMERICA version of the episode entitled "Vietnam SPecial" SHould be a little more than an hour. Fantastic show, one of their greatest episodes.

Also, I will be needing forecasts for the weekend of the 17th. Driving from here to Buffalo, NY.

Hopefully, Buffalo will be shoveled out by then!   I've seen Top gear before, but not that episode. I'll have to check it out.

Yeah the official measurement closest to my dads house was 42" over the 24hrs. But he says it's more like 48".

The snow stopped around 6pm though and that measurement (Depew) was taken at 8am by the NWS.
