Man Opens Garage Door in New York to Reveal Wall of Snow

A resident in Hamburg, New York, was greeted by a wall of snow when he opened his garage door on Friday, November 18, as lake-effect bands swept through western parts of the state.

Video filmed by @weather_buffalo shows the garage door rolling open to reveal a towering wall of snow that had built up against it. The video then pans outward to show snow was still falling, adding to the already large mounds.

The National Weather Service said 73.7 inches of snow was recorded in Hamburg on Saturday.

Hamburg, along with several other nearby towns, was under a travel ban as of Sunday, local reports said, as heavy snowfall was expected to persist. Credit: Richard Hulburd via Storyful
