Winter Memories

Oct. 13 (Bloomberg) -- The Buffalo, New York, area was blanketed under a record-setting 2 feet of snow, knocking out power to more than a quarter-million residents and prompting local and state authorities to declare a state of emergency.

The snow tapered off by midmorning, leaving 75,000 people in the city of Buffalo without power, Mayor Byron Brown said in a televised news conference.

I grew up in Rochester, and went to school in Buffalo. When I see mention of events like the one above it's hard not to get a bit nastalogic. There's nothing like getting 2 feet of snow while other parts of the country are having a sunny and 70 degree day.

Ahhh, the memories.
