    oh ya, I forgot, anyone that wants to make $10/hr and free tickets to the Buffalo Bills game this Sunday, all you need to do is show up at Ralph Wilson Stadium with a shovel and help move an estimated 22,000 TONS OF SNOW


    BWHAHAHAHA, good luck with that crap

    they are thinking they may move the game to Detroit or Pittsburgh

    They are saying now the stadium may not be ready for two weeks or more

    That much would shut this area down till April. Places shut down for a week when there's 8-10" falling let alone feet.

    well,well,well, it seems the western region of NYS is headed for a warm up this weekend? (must be due to global warming ) anyway, now there is a very real issue with snow build up on homes. Some building have all ready collapsed due to the weight of the snow on roofs.

    So if you live in the snow belt area, i would make it a priority to get as much snow off my roof as possible TODAY!!!!

    Who is a math wizz here

    10"square of snow equals 1"square inch of water. if you have a small ranch home with a roof that is 24 feet by 40 feet (one side) with 6 feet of snow on it, how much weight would that be???

    How much does one square inch of water weigh??? One gallon is 8.34 pounds?

    someone figure this out for me, I need more coffee?


    EDIT:: nevermind, I found this http://water.usgs.gov/edu/sc2.html

    calculate away kids. I figure a home the size from above would be about 36,000 pounds of weight holy crap, get up there and start moving snow

    where you're going to put it, I don't have a clue...good luck

    I always wondered why anyone would want to stay in a place that regularly gets lake effect snow.

    I have equipment to move a lot of snow and if not I will buy bigger equipment.I don't have equipment for tsunami, frequent tornadoes, hurricanes, earthquakes, sinkholes or all the other destructive natural disasters. the worst we ever get is a lot of snow. when I am out plowing for 20 hours non stop I do cuss out the snow but we have it pretty good compared to others. we adapt I guess. to me 6 feet of snow doesn't halt plans, slow them down yes but after a few hours life is back to normal. I couldn't imagine my home and family being swept away by a hit by a flying freigthliner. I do find myself more often considering relocating to Virginia or Maryland area.
