WNY (WKBW) - It's been two days since the first big storm of the season and Western New Yorkers are still digging out.

Armed with snow blowers and shovels. An armada of snow fighters hit the streets of Buffalo two days after the region received about a foot of snow.

It's also taking city crews, longer than some residents think it should. we've heard plenty of complaints from people, who say they waited too long to get plowed out.

Road crews are still chipping away at mounds of snow, cleaning up side streets.

In the first 16 hours after the snow stopped falling, workers cleared all 1.600 lanes miles within the city limits, and then, they did it again the next day, according to public works.

Most of the residents we spoke with say the city is doing a solid job, in fact some think the multiple passes, which result in that annoying pile of messy snow at the end of the driveway, is a bit much.

There will be no rest for the weekend. Two man crews will hit neighborhoods, cleaning up trouble spots and then Monday when alternate parking kicks in on certain streets. They'll be back out again.
