The major blizzard that lasted from January 28 to February 1, 1977, was dubbed the Blizzard of '77 in Buffalo. Daily peak wind gusts ranging from 46 to 69 mph were recorded by the National Weather Service Buffalo Office with snowfall as high as 100 inches
Here in Buffalo, the weather really isn't that bad. We don't have any earthquakes, we don't get any hurricanes, and there are never mudslides or tornadoes. We just get a little bit of snow, that's all.
It's been 35 years since Western New York was hit by one of the worst snow storms in recorded history. When ever you mention "The Blizzard of 77" to a Western New Yorker who lived through it, you can be sure they have a personal story to tell. I was 10 years old at the time and all I knew was that I had a snow day. Little did I know there were people stranded in their cars on impassable roads, some of those cars ended up being buried. It wasn't until days later that the drivers were found by plows trying to clear snow from the roads.
On this day back in 1977. a wall of black clouds descended upon Western New York and heavy snow and winds as high as 75 mph crashed through the region in what would come to be known as The Blizzard of 77
