Thank Jebus, I finally have Internet and cable TV access again, in time to give you a glimpse into the devastating effects of the Columbus Day Blizzard of 2006. As of this writing, there are still around 250-300,000 homes without power, and many, many more with extensive damage to their properties. Somehow, my apartment complex escaped the outages, and we appear to be the only ones within a 2-block radius that still have power up here in North Buffalo.
I’ve uploaded some of the images I took over the past couple of days; you can take a look here. Buffalo’s going to look a lot different after this; the lasting effects of this storm will be apparent for generations as the city’s trees slowly grow back again. Truly a shame.
