Syracuse, N.Y. — The lake effect snowstorm that forced the postponement of the Buffalo Bills playoff game originally scheduled for Sunday has dropped nearly 4 feet of snow in Western New York, and it’s not done yet.

The highest total reported so far by the National Weather Service is 41.3 inches, in the southern Erie County town of Hamburg. The town is about 5 miles from Lake Erie, the source of more than two days worth of unrelenting lake effect snow as southwest winds whipped across the open waters.
