We thought breaking our 701-day snowless (<1 inch) streak was wild with 1.4 inches, but Upstate New York, specifically Buffalo, received a whopping 3 feet of snow from the weekend’s winter storm.
According to Zack Taylor, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service in College Park, Maryland, dangerous temperatures and windy conditions placed around 150 million Americans under a wind chill warning or advisory.
Conditions were so bad, the Bills-Steelers playoff game scheduled for Sunday was delayed until Monday. According to NBC New York, Highmark Stadium in Orchard Park received more than a foot and a half of snow.
The Buffalo Bills snow removal crews worked hard to clear the stadium, however some fans still had to shovel out snow from their seats. Luckily the field was completely cleared before kickoff thanks to a tarp and tractors, reported ESPN.
And though the Bills explicitly expressed to dress for the weather, some fans were just too eager to contain themselves. A video went viral of a superfan sledding down the stadium’s snow covered stairs shirtless.
Lucky for the Bills and their fans, they secured the win against the Steelers 31-17. The next game will take place on Sunday, January 21 against the Chiefs.
