The blizzard was predicted and proved to be a once-in-a-generation event. Buffalo hasn't suffered a storm this lethal since at least 1950. Reed Timmer, a veteran meteorologist and storm chaser, described it as "the worst blizzard I have ever covered."

The storm's devastation was in part the result of its fierce combination of snow, wind and cold temperatures. Also, freezing conditions escalated quickly.
