Crazy Viral Photos of Highmark Stadium Buried in Lake Effect Snow
The Buffalo Bills will not be playing their week 11 game at Highmark Stadium in Orchard Park.
Instead, the game between the Bills and Cleveland Browns has been moved to Ford Field in Detroit, due to the lake effect snowstorm that is dumping a massive amount of snow in the southern parts of the City of Buffalo and the southtowns.
That lake effect snow band will move north tonight and into tomorrow morning and dump heavy, wet snow north of the City of Buffalo, but not before it dumps anywhere from 3-6 feet in the southtowns.
The Bills will have to get out of Western New York to play the game and we will have to see if the Bills can fly out in time for the game, which is scheduled to be tomorrow afternoon. The game is 1 pm on Sunday in Detroit.
Orchard Park is in the epicenter of this snow-wall and the Bills just shared photos inside of Highmark Stadium.
The photos are incredible.
It's so hard to appreciate this if you have never lived in this. Many people who don't live in the Great Lakes region don't quite understand just how impactful this kind of snowfall is. This is not light and fluffy snow, this is wet, heavy and intense snow that is hard to snow blow and shovel.
The Bills game being moved is a good thing. This region needs to save resources for the community and the logistics of getting to the stadium and getting roads cleared, just to have people leave their homes, that's why the game was moved.
Snow of this magnitude can be crippling to live in. This is bigger than football.
