Thoughts On The Allentown Art Festival !

The Allentown Art Festival has come and gone.  Sunday was the perfect day for walking around the event, but you better have had a good chunk of change on you if you wanted to take home something other than a fried dough.  I missed the festival this year, but one thing I remembered about it was that the art was waaaay overpriced.  I mean you have to sell off....

As I was driving "The Mothership" (my minivan) around at the mall today I came across something that I just had to share with you.  I've seen some pretty jaw dropping parking before but this one was pretty amazing.  How many door dings do you think came from this park job?

Abraham Lincoln’s Visits To Buffalo – Dale’s Daily Data

Abraham Lincoln funeral train on its journey to Springfield, Illinois (Getty Images)Interesting to look thru the history of Buffalo and find that President Lincoln made two stops in the Queen City.  The first was sort of a victory tour after he was elected in 1860.  He traveled by train from Springfield, Illinois thru Chicago and Cleveland and on to Buffalo.  Along the way the train stopped in Westfield and in Dunkirk where Lincoln made a few remarks to thousands of people who turned out.  Then the train arrived at Buffalo’s Exchange Street station in February, 1861 where it was met by tens of thousands of people.

What Happened To All The Snow?

At least here in Western New York the mammoth storm we'd been hearing about kinda fizzled.  Depending on what source you were depending on the forecast said we could get anywhere from 8 to 16 inches of snow - maybe more.  And with high winds it could create some very dangerous conditions.

Blizzard of 77 Began 34 Years Ago Today

It was on this day back in 1977 that a wall of black clouds descended on Western New York bringing bitter cold, heavy snow and winds as high as 75 mph in what would come to be known as The Blizzard of '77.

Opinion: Buffalo’s Traffic Signals

From the “I’ll believe it when I see it” file – I saw an item on the WGRZ-TV 2 website that says progress is being made on synchronizing Buffalo’s traffic signals.  As I was reading I kept wondering when I’m going to get to the punchline.  Anybody that’s ever tried to get around the city down the major streets knows it’s not unusual to have to stop at every light. 

I’ve always said traffic lights don’t control traffic in Buffalo – they’re meant to stop it.
