i was on a trip in buffalo. the temperature is 6° outside. winds out of the north at 47 mph. road conditions were bad and visibility was like ten feet at the most. some guy on the local radio talking his head off about how severe weather was going to be all weekend. i'm thinking to myself, why my am i on this trip. i finally pull into the hotel and kiss my lucky stars nothing bad happened. i leave the hotel only to get food. i'm tune into the weather channel in hopes that the weather would break for a minute so i can get some shots in. but it never did. so on my way down one morning, i just happen to look up and see this shot.
