weather-related:

The NFL is officially moving the game between Buffalo and Cleveland to Ford Field in Detroit, where it will be played at 1:00pm on Sunday.

Buffalo is playing the Lions on Thanksgiving day, so the Bills will play two games in Detroit next week.

(a week in Detroit for Bills fans....I hope the liquor stores are well-stocked......)...............

By Sunday the weather will be just fine but I imagine getting the stadium ready and the teams getting to the stadium would be difficult. If they were playing in Buffalo it would probably be with no fans anyways, otherwise it would be a disaster with 70K people trying to get to the stadium.

The Orchard Park totals are in about 14-15 hours. Almost 3 inch per hour over half a day. It continues today.

If we got that much snow, I might have to give up on the plastic shovel and buy a snow-blower.

Weather question for you @GopherWeatherGuy - how do they actually measure the inches of snow that falls when there's also a lot of blowing wind? Measure it along a snow fence and it'll be really deep - measure it in the middle of an open field where the wind is blowing and it'll be much less. Even in my driveway there's a big variation in the depth of snow that happens from a storm.

I don't have much to add to what GII and SON posted. I try to find the best open area that may have some sort of distant wind break to help shelter it a little.

I think the best is to take an average of the area, compare that to the melted liquid and calculated snow ratio's. That should give you a pretty accurate reading. But measuring snow with strong wind is still an imperfect Science.

I'll be thinking of y'all up there in the cold and dicking with snow (potentially) while I'm getting in 45 miles on the bike this afternoon before the Gophers-Iowa game
