Heavy Snow In Buffalo

Heavy Snow In Buffalo - Heavy snow has stranded motorists for nearly 20 hours on a major thoroughfare near Buffalo, New York, with emergency personnel working to get them out despite continued squalls and sizable drifts.

Tractor-trailers and passenger cars are marooned on two nearby four-mile stretches of Interstate 90 -- one eastbound and the other westbound. Even with the help of plows and all-terrain vehicles to clear the road and reach those stuck, as of 4:15 p.m., the highway authority said it had no estimate on when the interstate would reopen.

Authorities have provided gas and sustenance to those stuck on the road, and have taken stranded motorists by bus to a senior center-turned-shelter in suburban Cheektowaga.

"We're still using ATVs that have police officers or (firefighters) operating them, inspecting to see if anyone needs any services," said New York State Police Capt. Michael Nigrelli. "We are seeing progress now, (and we're) hoping in the next few hours to see some breakthroughs."
Sam McMahon, who has been trapped on the interstate since 8:30 p.m. Wednesday, told CNN meteorologist Reynolds Wolf that while he has seen snow comparable to this, there is something unique about this storm.

Obviously, we’ll have more on this story throughout the day and well into the night…

Matt Cassel Undergoes Appendectomy

Matt Cassel Undergoes Appendectomy - The mystery of Matt Cassel missing practice Wednesday coupled with the Kansas City Chiefs promoting quarterback Tyler Palko has been solved.

The team has announced that Cassel underwent an appendectomy on Wednesday morning. The Chiefs say they expect Cassel to return to work this week. Returning to work and being ready to perform well in the team’s biggest game of the season on Sunday against San Diego are two different things. ESPN’s Adam Schefter is reporting the Chiefs are viewing Cassel as being questionable to play in the game.

Clearly, this is terrible timing. The Chiefs are 8-4 and would take a major step toward the playoffs with a win over the Chargers. Cassel has played very well for the past two months. If he can’t play, the brittle Brodie Croyle would face the Chiefs in his first action of the season. Croyle last played in Week 13 of the 2009 season.
