(BUFFALO, N.Y.) — People in the Buffalo, New York, area have been snowed in for the second straight day, and some are even trapped at stores or jobs because of a sudden huge snowstorm.

And it isn’t over. More snow is expected to pound upstate New York on Wednesday, as officials frantically try to clear massive truckloads of snow from the area.

Buffalo Mayor Byron Brown said Wednesday that more than 5,000 tons of snow have already been removed from south Buffalo.

Meanwhile, residents are posting photos of the snow piling up outside their car or home windows.

Patti Mahaney said she’s stranded at home for the second day in a row and there’s more than four feet of snow in the parking lot of her apartment building, near the stadium where the Buffalo Bills play.

Others not so lucky to be stranded at home got stuck at stores, restaurants or at work on Tuesday.


So this is how I’m spending my night. On the floor of a Tim Horton’s. You can see the snow piled up outside… pic.twitter.com/2b91u4uLL6
