BRANT (WKBW) From buried cars to snow piles taller than the average human, the lake effect snow continued to hit areas south of Buffalo throughout Friday.

Early on, the drive through Village of Angola was a treacherous one, with snow falling and blowing everywhere.

"It's crazy. You're all over the place. There's a lot of snow, it's been snowing for two three days now. You can't go nowhere, and if you do you're all over the place," Edward Shealy said.

Snowblowers were also a common sight, as residents continued to dig out.

"The worst part is the visibility. When it gets to blowing, when the wind blows and you can't see, that's the worst part," Bob Sutehall said.

Further south in North Collins it was all about quantity of snow, nearly burying mailboxes and snapping tree limbs because of the weight. Jerry Dole had to carve out a path just to get to his front door for the third time in three days.

"Just keep after it so it doesn't get so high you can't plow it," Dole said.

But some businesses in this area depend on weather like this.

"During the wintertime, your collision shops, your mechanical shops, car dealers, we need this type of weather. This is what generates income for us and for the rest of the town because we in turn spend money also," owner of Hamburg Camp Auto Sales Christopher Cerne said.

Down the road in the Town of Brant, conditions were similar, and people like Sam Rizzo weren't buying into all that positive thought.

"I plowed the other day for four hours and when I got done it was like I never even started. It filled in that quick, probably 2-3 inches per hour. Unbelievable," Rizzo said.
