BUFFALO (WKBW) The blizzard warning may be over, but the snow, wind, and cold are definitely not. In Downtown Buffalo, snow was still falling and blowing well into Wednesday morning.

"It's tricky, it's slippery, it's bad. Plus I'm walking, and it's no better than cars," Buffalonian Donald Woods said.

"We had two days and it just hasn't stopped. It was blowing real bad, and it caught right up to us," fellow resident Leslie Longboat added.

That leaves many like Louis Camacho, to dig out.

"I gotta do what I gotta do to make a living. This is my job, I've got to do it. It's like the mailman," Camacho said.

Major roads and highways were reopened after a full day worth of plowing, but many were still quite slow for the morning commute.

"Driving is really bad. Roads are kinda clear but roads are slow going," Orchard Park resident Ron Godert said.

Just a few miles north, the state of emergency and travel ban were lifted in Kenmore as conditions improved, but there is still a travel advisory, and schools in the Ken-Ton district are closed as of Wednesday at noon.

"I've been here 84 years and I don't want any more of it," Don Zimmerman said about the winter.

"Two years ago I only used my snow blower 3 times I think. Now, everyday," Kenmore resident Phil Geraci said.
