Winter is coming, and it’s a snow wall.
WKBW reports an “unprecedented” amount of snow falling on Buffalo, a city used to large amounts of snow. The early snowstorm is accumulating at 2 to 4 inches per hour.

Some parts of northern New York are expected to get 6 feet of snow. That's three inches taller than the average American male.
Joseph DeBenedictis tweeted a photo of a “wall of snow” approaching the city that went viral:
