Buffalo Cleanup

The New York Times:
BUFFALO, Oct. 18 — More than 100,000 homes and businesses remained without power here on Wednesday, nearly a week after a preseason snowstorm dumped almost two feet of snow and wreaked havoc on trees and power lines.

Twelve deaths have been attributed to the storm, and schools are still closed. Officials say the cleanup could cost more than $30 million.
