Winter appears to be arriving in Buffalo today, in the form of an incredibly windy storm that's also packing some snow, although the wind is such that right now there is virtually no chance of snow actually accumulating. Thus it begins.
UPDATE: Now, six hour or so after I wrote that post, the winds have slackened a bit, thus allowing the snow to begin accumulating. The amount isn't such that it can be meaningfully described in terms of inches, yet, but it may get there. But hell, after spending last winter in Syracuse (which gets significantly more snow than Buffalo), I'm ready. Bring it on!
