A day off for most Buffalo schoolchildren due to Hurricane Sandy couldn't have come at a better time. With most local schools closed today (October 30), those looking for a way to fill the day found the perfect activity: indoor trick-or-treating at Galleria of Treats at the Walden Galleria.
Hurricane Sandy is expected to hit the East Coast this afternoon (October 29), bringing heaving winds and rain to Buffalo tonight. Obviously staying safe in the storm should be your first priority, but if you're a little curious to see what Sandy's doing to Western New York, we've found a way for you to do so from home.

Although it's hard to think about looking outside your window at today's gorgeous sunshine, we're used to bad weather around this time of year in Buffalo.
