“I haven’t ate since Monday,” a woman tweeted this morning on highway I-90 near Blasdell, N.Y., just south of Niagara Falls, Buffalo, and Lake Ontario. “Still stuck … 30 hours later. I’m hungry. I wish a magic carpet would appear now.”

The Buffalo area, along with the rest of western New York, is immobilized in a snowstorm that has killed at least six people and buried streets and homes under nearly six feet of white. It’s a state of emergency: More than 50 flights have been canceled at Buffalo Niagara International Airport. The city’s schools are closed.

Interpol have been stuck in their tour bus for two days


Residents are stuck inside, with virtually nothing at all to do—except shovel their hearts out, and tweet insane photos like these.

Remember: mark your snow buried fire hydrants properly as to not be hit by snowplows #buffaloblizzard2014 #staysafe https://twitter.com/FlaskandStein/status/535078569681375232/photo/1

The band Interpol had to cancel a show in Toronto because their bus has been stuck in the snow outside Buffalo for 30 hours.

Still trapped yo! Haven’t really moved in 30 hours and we’ve been on the bus for nearly 40 hours. Nutso. Never seen anything like it.-DK
