Consider this: Parts of western New York got more snow Tuesday than other parts of the Northeast get in an entire winter.
According to the National Weather Service, some Buffalo suburbs approached an all-time national record for snow in 24 hours—roughly 76 inches.

As the snow fell some houses were buried all the way up to the gutters.
Local NBC affiliate WGRZ reported that the Red Cross had opened at least eight shelters to help those affected by the storm.
Unfortunately for the region, there's more snow coming — according to the Weather Channel, another foot or 2 of snow is in store over the next few days.
This image is one of the most widely seen so far of the storm: a wall of snow rolling across Lake Erie on its way toward land.
As WGRZ explains it, this storm provided a perfect alignment of wind and other atmospheric conditions along the length of the lake, which whipped up snow to record proportions.
Some people were lucky enough to dig themselves out, but others were less fortunate—like the Niagara University women's basketball team, whose bus got stuck for 24 hours in the snow.
The National Guard was called in to help release people stranded in cars or otherwise affected by the storm. In this photo, two first responders standing next to a National Guard humvee direct people out of their cars.
Even though the Buffalo area is used to snow, a storm like this is still a blow to a region enjoying a nascent economic recovery (though unemployment and job growth still lag national averages).
Snowbanks up to people's chests are common with this storm, which killed at least five people as of Wednesday morning.
New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo has called in a variety of emergency resources to assist with storm recovery, including the National Guard.
Not surprisingly given the magnitude of the storm, WGRZ reported nearly 900 school closing alerts as of mid-morning Wednesday.
