A brutal winter storm and frigid cold swept the U.S. over Christmas weekend last month resulting in utter chaos, destruction, and plenty of deaths. Western New York, particularly the city of Buffalo, suffered the most because of the storm, which officials have called “the blizzard of the century".
The vicious snowstorm caused road closures and forced the cancelation of thousands of domestic flights. In Buffalo, houses, cars, and streets could be seen submerged under several feet of snow. Gigantic dump trucks were called in to scoop it up.
Things have, fortunately, normalized a bit now. Many people in Buffalo even began to see the funny side of the mess that was left in the wake of the snowstorm. Check out the pictures below that capture the aftermath of the crazy blizzard in Buffalo.
