Buffalo, NY (WKBW) - The snow began steadily falling once again in Buffalo on Saturday afternoon.

The sounds of scraping, shoveling and snowblowers keep coming in Buffalo. June, a Buffalo resident, says "Me and my three kids shoveled out the van. And now I have to do it again today."

The main and secondary roads are fine to drive on. However, several people say they are frustrated by how much snow is accumulating on the side streets.

City officials say on-street parking can complicate plowing on Buffalo roads.

One Buffalo resident, Mohamud Abdifatah, noted on his street, it is "too bad to drive."

Snow certainly is not anything new for Western New Yorkers. However, this is the first week of a big snow storm in two years.

Some residents, including 69-year-old Arthur Johnson and 9-year-old Michael Gonzales, are cleaning up the streets themselves.

Johnson says "I'm 69 years old, I've had open heart surgery, had some toes chopped off and I'm out here shoveling -- cause who else is going to do it?"

Johnson adds he has only seen one plow go down his street, and thinks more is needed.

The City of Buffalo says it has not had any major complaints and had many streets plowed several times within 16 hours since the snow started falling. That includes quite a few side streets.

Anyone who feels their streets have not received enough attention should call 3-1-1.
