The Parking Rules Are Changing In Buffalo, New York
The winter weather in Buffalo is not exactly what most would expect for February. After the Christmas blizzard left, the weather pattern has been warmer and wetter than average. In fact, there are reports that we may see temperatures in the upper 50's this week!
For those of us who love snow and winter sports, the weather is certainly not cooperating. The snowmobile trails are quiet and filled with mud. The ski hills are getting thin and ice rinks are puddles. But that is good news for those who park in the City of Buffalo.
The winter parking regulations are being drawn back temporarily along some of the city streets.
The weather doesn't seem to become "wintery" anytime soon here in the Western New York area. But we are not alone. Across New York State there are events being canceled.
The Winter Carnival at Lawson Lake in Albany County that was supposed to happen Saturday has been scrapped. Also, the Fire and Ice event in Glens Falls on Friday also will not happen either. The hope is that event can take place next Friday, February 24th.
Buffalo sits at 116 inches of snow because of the blizzard and lake snow events. Buffalo and Erie County are way ahead of the rest of The Empire State in terms of snowfall. But winter is not over yet and, historically speaking, some major storms have occurred in March in Buffalo.
