At 209 PM EST, A band of lake effect snow was producing snow fall
rates of around one inch per hour along a line extending from Alden
to Hamburg.

Winds in excess of 30 mph are possible with this band of lake effect
snow that will cause widespread blowing and drifting of snow. This
will reduce visibilities below one quarter of a mile at times.

Locations impacted include...
West Seneca, Lackawanna, Hamburg, East Aurora, Darien Lakes State
Park, Evans, Elma, Marilla, Orchard Park, Alden, Blasdell, Derby,
Wales Center, Elma Center, Angola on the Lake, Woodlawn Beach State
Park, Billington Heights and Cowlesville.

This includes Interstate 90 between exits 57 and 55.

Use extra caution if you must travel into or through this dangerous
snow squall. Rapid changes in visibility and potentially slick roads
are likely to lead to accidents. Consider delaying travel until the
squall passes your location.

Conditions can deteriorate rapidly in winter weather situations. Be
prepared for snow or ice covered roads. Slow down and allow extra
time when traveling.

Rehabbing Wildlife Classes Starting

Have you ever found a baby bird, or a den of orphaned baby bunnies and not known what to do?

That is when you call in licensed wildlife rehabbers.  Among the tens of other things these folks do, they take the animals, help them out and eventually release them back into the wild.

AWARE (Association of Wild Animal Rehabilitation and Education) is a non-profit wildlife rehabber in Lockport.  AWARE’s mission is to rescue and care for orphaned, injured, and distressed wildlife, and to educate the public on the various issues regarding wildlife and the environment.  The organization is run wholly by volunteers.

AWARE’s “Rehabilitating Wildlife” classes are going to be held on Saturdays, February 16, 2019 to March 16, 2019, from 10 AM to 1PM at Starpoint Central School Community Education, 4363 Mapleton Rd, Lockport, NY. The cost is $100.00 for all 5 classes. Registration will be available starting Tuesday, January 14, 2019 though Starpoint. https://www.starpointcsd.org/domain/42

The classes are designed to help people interested in becoming a NYS DEC licensed wildlife rehabilitator, and/or obtaining a U.S. Fish and Wildlife Migratory Bird Rehabilitation Permit. -JAP-
