Western New Yorkers woke up to snow-covered roads Friday morning. But the lake snows eased up overnight and the National Weather Service canceled its Lake Effect Snow Advisory for Niagara, Orleans and Monroe Counties.
The City of Buffalo is equipped and ready for the snow. That was the message delivered this morning by mayor Byron Brown and public works commissioner Steve Stepniak at the Broadway barn, where officials conducted their annual inspection of the city's snow-cleaning vehicles.
Stepniak says every plow and salter hitting the streets this winter will be equipped with global positioning system equipment so crews back at the base can track the trucks' progress.
