It's said best by a man wearing a Tyrod Taylor jersey, standing in 12 degree weather, "This is outside Buffalo, New York. This is life."

Lake effect snow blanketed parts of Western New York after the first major snow system of the season and northern Cattaraugus County residents were unfazed.

Winds dropped the temperature to 12 degrees at some points in the morning and created snow drifts of up to five feet. 

"10 or 20 below is cold," said Bryan Milks, who we found shoveling his walkway without gloves or a hat on.

Many of the residents we caught up with say to just let the snow keep coming.
