Schools are closed, flights have been canceled and the National Guard is helping to clear roads in Buffalo after a heavy storm dumped almost three feet of snow on this frigid city in western New York over the weekend. TIME's Andy Danzo reports: "This storm was very strong and it has created some problems. Schools and colleges are closed, which doesn't usually happen. The main roads have been cleared, but side streets and rural roads are problematic. Officials have asked people with four-wheel drive vehicles to volunteer to deliver supplies and medicine to people who are snowed in. We haven't received any reports of deaths or serious injuries. Residents are pretty much used to this kind of inconvenience and are taking it with grudging good humor. And bracing for another season of Buffalo jokes."
