Four feet of snow has fallen in Orchard Park in a 24-hour period, and it's wreaking havoc not just for everyone in the region, but for the Buffalo Bills' practice schedule as they get set to face the New York Jets this weekend. Doug Marrone couldn't even get to work yesterday on the players' day off. With players scheduled to report for practice this morning and a driving ban in place, the team cancelled practice. Bills vice president of media relations Scott Berchtold also said the team has been clearing the lots and removing snow from the stadium at a record pace.

The forecast calls for more lake-effect snow as the week continues before the temperature warms up over the weekend, possibly as high as the 50s. As for Sunday's game, it's still on as planned for now. The Buffalo airport has received just four inches as the lake-effect band has stayed south of the city. We'll of course keep you updated on developments as they happen.

As we cover the weather's impact on our football team, it's important to keep in mind that five deaths in Erie County and one in Genesee County have been attributed to the storm. Stay safe, Western New Yorkers.
