You talk about it that charge or is that what you are at stake we -- -- Erie county and -- editor that he tried or whether. I'm gonna go through it or and it should it's pretty hot right now. Well of all of the road you mentioned the one that I would be most concerned about given the wide open stretches and the wind would be Crittenton. Craig and put a little sloppy err well I thought it was on how well actually got our -- -- my religious and mark from the block out. But and it seemed like it was pretty route traveled all that was always -- solidarity. My brother will look Turkey go to safely and if you wanna take pictures if you can safely do it you know -- to -- the right. All right brother banks keep safe. And I always do thank you very much Paul -- I yell at -- folks I by the way I also like to say and again Greta I got to work for five hours ago. And I controlled bomb that's the main street Williams and dole I drove through some of the Williams hillside streets to avoid -- street Williams Phil Sheridan drive Miller's court. And maple and all I can tell you is. The people responsible for plowing those roads. Did a great job. I can't complain I cannot rich folks you know. How -- idea what I think people are doing a good job and I think they should be. I've got no complaints to you because there's nothing I I saw on my drive and where I would say what were they asleep at the switch. Because the howdy guys the state these. The village guys in the -- guys at least my roads were terrific. And hopefully you're having the same experience. And remember to. The fact that we had advance notice Sanders and the fact that a lot of places closed down really really really helped. It really makes a difference the fewer cars that if you work risks. The fewer cars. The few reveal weeds. Let's go to Tom on the west side and WB and Tomas hello. Big time long time -- speak. -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- Well we are only about three miles from Kim -- east and unless I'm missing something it would I would expected to have some light snow why the questions specifically regarding -- Maurice. Blog so I'm from a lot so. Now but I don't like anyway it might migrate those. Dude if you're gonna start back on a joke and -- electors. And I don't need first and our final vote -- -- school system Robert -- and -- And as soon as they got the school is set them back home I'm the boss. And I got the same gripe about businesses. Because the businesses what they do they'll put on the first shift. Nobody get them out and I want to get them out of it -- lot of Maleeva orally. They make more bold -- but I may call off the second and third shift. They get all these people say at all bay and they can't drive home until while targets a really bad just like no other forecasters side. Well unfortunately. Look. I cannot help businesses how to run businesses and there may very well may be some crucial orders that have to be filled by some businesses and the work -- to be done today and what might it stand in the way of commerce. Well a lot of -- -- -- machine chapter of that warning -- very -- I don't wanna give a blog Bob ball ballparks. You know I mean emissions jobs they don't lose or electricity but -- program. -- they lose or electricity they can't -- the machines. All of that have a backup generator I'm not sure what they're logistics are over there but. They kill on the machines that might turn the -- I'm blood. It's not -- on the machines. That's a nice thing about working with the Amish they they use their feet seriously don't use electricity everything is done -- generally it's amazing. Now so. I think pardon don't you sort of -- out to water and several well they most certainly do. The wall I don't need to kudos to them. I mean there be other Smart they're Smart self sufficient folks with a poop hits the fan I'm gonna go down live with the Amish or speak just enough Germany get by self. When I was gonna say is. You have an issue with businesses calling in people. To work. Only to let them go early or to keep them there all day because I'm a little confused. What is best scenario. They love them both orally. And they keep -- toll on alert should have and -- I can't -- all the other ships. Well again you know what -- may be perfectly valid reasons why a business tasks to do that they're very well may be orders that have to be in Mexico tomorrow morning I don't know. But. You know -- and elevate generally speaking -- Generally speaking most things can wait some things can't some people are essential some people are not essential. Look at a Saturday or Sunday I wouldn't be essential. We'd be all cigar -- all day. Magloire there was water all of the falls you'd be. I don't think huge award over there today. If you take supervised -- individual and that just made me laugh thank you very much and -- -- called. -- and to do that today who I don't think all that would have been unfortunate who were no safety artists whom their killer. Our credit sacked -- hourly let's find out much traffic right now from a guy who is it off the streets he knows what it's like first though they're -- Alan Harris. And what do you think you're gonna fight to end. I know Alan diagnosis as well as effective in some areas the visibility is gonna be fun if you're gonna say hey how come -- hourly and Larry -- and -- players -- all about the weather whereas Hannity might go the worlds coming to an end coach Sean Hannity tonight. Well here's the thing somewhere sometimes the visibility spine than other times we look out the window and we can't see the building across the way it.

You know Clinton and her mother come over and make -- cookies and -- all right thank you pretty much different strategy call. So this -- buffalo you guys -- -- that you are about these things and we are where we are collecting a photo album. And -- it. You know that the fun stuff the -- components of this blizzard of 2014.

It's it's your call what I do that I asked those photos to the people who put them up -- -- few people who do that. But. I try to be respectful of your privacy to the greatest extent possible. 030930. Is the phone number when he was Percy right now with the weather 8030930. Start I'm thirty on the cellphone. 180616. WBE and the sky highway is closed. In fact I'm amazed. In this is a good thing. That we have not had more calls from south of the city or people try to take those alternate routes out of the city. In the lack a -- -- it in the Hamburg. I I have to say this like a listener. I haven't had -- call not -- from somebody who has been jammed up by the closing of the skyway maybe he'll be my first calling it. Again Matt I don't know if he's still there but there's a guy and Hyundai. Who is on the right shoulder of the 219 heading south just after you get on from the ninety's. Now he's not the error because he's trying to be a division nozzle he is there to alert -- tow truck. That there is a vehicle about thirty feet down in a -- -- Which is gonna have to be winched out. So if you see the guy in the Hyundai he's not just there you know pass in the time -- day. He's doing a good deed for another citizen so be advised you might see somebody off on the right. That's my listener because there's a guy off the left in the ditch. And we're trying to make sure that the tow truck knows exactly where that guy may be found which by the way is a reminder to you. I know they're expensive. But road hazard -- I think are good to have in your car. Even some of those glow sticks that you can -- partners all the regulars that -- pretty cheaply those are a bad idea to have just to give people an idea. Where you are actually a hazard player would be better than it was going to be a lot more visible. Actors you never know what you're gonna end up off the deputy got to get somebody's attention. And nothing says I need help like a -- Of course you know one of the problems was we talked about the embassy and Boeing 777. When the Titanic was in the process of -- no -- They set up distress rockets. There was another unknown vessel in the area. That saw the distress rockets and did nothing. And the thinking is they probably thought the Titanic was celebrating something. And not in need of assistance the same thing happened to. The end not not that long ago just off of Cleveland Ohio. There was an oil barge named the clean Inco. Was that an oil barge no no it was a sand soccer -- are is a San soccer. And these four guys. Is that the vessel totally lost ability it was going down they tried to -- mattresses on the deck to attract attention from people on the shore of Lake -- we need help. And the people on the short obviously not a fool -- seafaring experience. And know what's going up they thought it was just some late celebration. They're trying to get attention. So up anyway that's just my long winded way of saying not a bad idea to have some road players in the car. I don't with -- SPS on them with that thank you. Let's go to sure race in the Lancaster on WB at your -- -- welcome to the -- show thanks for calling. -- -- She -- I need a better connection frenetic. I I can I could barely better. Can you put your idea if it -- better just keep your mouth is close to the Mike is you can't figure. I aimed I mean I'm working here medical center and therefore that -- -- 33. More than ninety. I didn't like cancer and getting home after that I normally get on a regular actually you and on the street cloud iMac and yeah I would blanket that I'm taking. You know. Union ground since French and the followed that you know and have been that great -- -- match knowing. The. Well again this is that this is. This is why I think the weather service ought to be commended because they let us know what's coming. And the people who decided preemptively and proactively to close things down made the right decision because those people who need to be on the roads are finding that the trucks the plows generally have had a chance to plow them and keep up with the wallet. -- with a minimum of fender benders with which they have the content. So you've made it -- to transit the French. You didn't stop off at the head shot did you. You did stop off at the head shot well all look at Q. What is it all attitude to call again. I really -- loans that Ryan grades but anyway I think that Tuesday. Anyway but I don't remember remember he's been damaged -- that but anyway but the guide ironic I think that would be the work. Many don't comet that great right all right so right. It's a transit the French what are -- yeah. I -- thinking I'm Kate tick -- 33 and 91. Elaine street I'm heading toward Lancaster and it's still think there's no hard on the road out. Well okay. Why I think you're in transit. Now on -- I adding that -- but I think -- thoroughly and there was no -- -- -- doing everything I own. -- let me just take a wild guess even though there is nobody on the fairway. You still got stuck for the red light at William street as you get off the threw away. Yes it I swear it's like a curse of light that that light is always read. We got that -- system how much longer before you won't. I then. You know I feel they need and short irons -- and a normal workday which in strained in the whole situation -- I am happy I -- you know. May I ask them what it is you do for a living -- you can't tell me it's not my damn business open ended. I'm an hour and -- Erie county Mac -- Also you're obviously eight net necessary person you have to be out driving because without our ends LP ends and these. We would all pretty much be screw. I because nothing says I'm here to start your day with a smile like it fully captured. Already that a little mercy. -- -- -- -- -- out imports so very you know when I'm driving wonderful. -- -- race I thank your for yours and if you can safely do a -- offered a one of those parking lots on the Williams street and take a picture of the deserted road said that to -- Thomas WB and dot com I'd be honored. -- -- -- -- You know three on my thirtieth news radio 930 WB yet seizes this intimate audience we have if you're new listener to the show. Just yesterday steps up and this is not like the usual talk share. You have to think of my show and the people listen to it like one giant dysfunctional. Family. And I and the king of dysfunction okay. Unlike the weird uncle on the couch. Who drink too much except they don't wreck. Not because I'm an alcoholic had just put -- to sleep and I will but not that much so anyway. That's what we are and that's why people come here. Because. You know if for some people. Your voice when you call into my show in my voice when you listen for some people in this high tech world in which we live. This is the only human contact they get all bank unless they're listening to sandy beach. This is the only live local contact they get. It's kind of -- heavy duty responsibility. Which is why. I kind of -- what I do. Don't actually say -- -- -- 1969. Called it like it's word back all right it's coming. 30 my thirtieth news radio 930 WB the end is Woodstock this summer. Are gay and please don't shoot the messenger well if you do just make your clean quick one. We have a blizzard warning under which were all sailing together today somebody wants -- to place sailing by Christopher Cross as a tropical music -- No. Absolutely not that's not happening not on my show sorry it won't happen my apologies but it won't. Anyway that's songs like a little bit of hell -- my years. Right now it's 21 degrees it feels like minus one tonight we're gonna be down into the single digits for a -- -- had yeah that's not even with the wind chill and by the time this is all said and done ever take we're looking to get about a foot of snow. And again ladies and gentlemen I don't need to be. But. Just because it's clear where you are right now. You can drive three miles an end up in a swirling maelstrom of psychotic whether. A swirling maelstrom of site Monica whether. So don't just think that arguably these guys WB you have called this a blizzard because. Because right now it just got really really heavy and Amherst. It ain't heavy it's a blizzard so and by the way they say blizzard. In order to be a blizzard for our criteria which must be met. By the weather gurus at the National Weather Service this storm meets those criteria ergo it is a blizzard. Now what made after -- -- gonna compare with 1977. And it probably won't compare with 1985. But it is a blizzard. And I would also. Like to actually amend. Our out local governments. And the -- people. And the emergency people so far I think they've got one hell of a good job again. So well but if I'm wrong let me know but I think good work ought to be lauded as much as we bitch when bad work is done. And up from what I've seen. A lot of people made great decisions today. Decisions which have greatly mitigated what could have been a real horrible drive poll. I should point out to the weather's gonna get worse between now and the time I leave the air in fact. I have a little note here from mud at you whether one of many notes -- receiving a daily basis for AccuWeather. I'm like snow across the Niagara frontier and portions of the southern tier will intensify. After 5 PM. As they sold off. Sorry but I citadel was a little over the top as a swat. Of moderate to heavy snow over southern Ontario will push east in other words our way. And snowfall rates under an inch an hour will increase to between one and two inches an hour. Between five and seven. So over the next two hours bottom line is don't be surprised depending on where you are that these low intensity will increase and the winds will gust as high as fifty. Miles an hour so it is going to get worse. Is it the end of the world to know is that the apocalypse no but it's gonna get worse. So let's be careful -- -- responsibly. Let's cut everybody some breaks especially the delivery guys that FedEx the post office UPS. DHL cut those guys breaks because they put them on an insane schedule. And if you could let them in the traffic revenue traffic. Because believe me they are -- overworked. They don't schedule based on blizzards they schedule based on the best possible scenarios so if you can let these guys and ladies and you'd really be doing them a solid and they do appreciated. 457 a WB Ian.
