    Title: “Buffalo Photographer Captures Massive Snowfall From The Sky”
    Summary- There are some people that enjoy the winter, however there are others that dislike the winter. Some individuals dislike the winter because of the snow. When it snows, it is extremely cold and if one owns a car they have to dig out the snow around it or on top of it. In the article “Buffalo Photographer Captures Massive Snowfall From the Sky” the author Brian Ries indicates that there was a massive snowstorm in Buffalo on Tuesday. In addition, reporters want to find a better and creative way to tell the reader’s about the snowstorm that has occurred. There were several photos captured that demonstrated the damage done to Buffalo. Several houses and cars, including trucks were filled with snow and many were unable to move. Aside from several houses being covered in snow, there were secondary issues. Many of the roofs were collapsing, people were left with no heat, and the structures began to fail. The Ralph Wilson Stadium is also covered in snow and many of the snow will have to removed for Sunday’s game. The snowstorm that occurred on Tuesday has been greatly affecting Buffalo.

    Buffalo photographer

    In buffalo 220,000 tons of snow fell down which led to a massive snowfall. The snow made a lot of damage to cars and properties. It covered peoples houses that in order for them to get out they had to use shovels and dig. Many cars are still stranded in a interstate 90 route in the highway, there are many cars buried in a dealership due to the damage. People in Buffalo say that the storm did major damage to the residents living there. I strongly believe that the government should give them money for the damage caused by the snow.
