Gary Louth, owner of Buffalo Auto Glass, which also does commercial and residential work, made it to the office today despite the massive snowstorm that hit Erie County, N.Y., over the last two days. But with the snow continuing to accumulate and the area essentially on emergency lockdown, Louth doesn’t plan to hang around too long.

“I’m probably not staying here all day,” he told USGNN.com™ Wednesday morning.

Louth says that six to eight inches had accumulated where his business is and two feet where his home is, 10 miles away. Five more miles away sits nearly six feet of snow, he says.

As of mid-morning, South Cheektowaga—a suburb of Buffalo—had accumulated 65 inches, and the National Weather Service reported some areas could near the record for single-day snowfall in the U.S., which is 6 feet 4 inches.

The City of Buffalo issued an alert that mayor Byron Brown “is asking city residents and others to please adhere to the travel ban that’s in effect in South Buffalo. No driving permitted in South Buffalo, aside from emergency vehicles and emergency personnel.”

USGNN.com reached out to several other glaziers in Buffalo but hadn’t received any answers as of press time. South Buffalo Glazing’s phone, for example, went straight to a voicemail that said its office was closed.

Louth says this kind of weather “does impact this business a little bit,” for example, if a window is broken due to snowblowing too close to the house. However, he says the bigger concern with the weather is the cold factor. “If the window has been broken for six months … we had better get it fixed.”

The National Weather Service has forecasted that certain areas could see as much as eight more inches accumulate today and tonight and eight more tomorrow. According to The Buffalo News, there have been six deaths in the area as a result of the storm, and more than 100 people had been trapped at some point.
