Real Men Don't Use Barrels!

DIVING INTO HISTORY

 Everyone is familiar the many daredevils who sought glory in their attempts to go over Niagara Falls in barrels, as Anne Taylor did in 1901, or walk a high wire across the gorge as Blondin and others did with great success in the 19th century. Now Nik Wallenda will make a brave attempt at crossing the Falls on a 'rope' to Canada on June 15(2012).

  A little known fact is, that Buffalo, not to be outdone by it's Niagara neighbors, had it's own daredevils going over the largest things we had to offer, Grain Elevators!  Unfortunately, many of  the daredevils braving Buffalo's waterfront, learned too late; going over Niagara Falls would  have been a lot safer than a grain elevator.

Western New Yorkers Asking Where’s the Snow?

Jokingly known in some circles across the country as the ‘Snow Capital of America’, Buffalo, NY is certainly looking to break its namesake this winter.

To-date our city has managed to fight off its first snowflakes until December 2nd, a feat that fell just one day short of a record that was set back in 1899.

In addition, we’ve also had only 2.8” of snow recorded so far this month which pales in comparison to last year’s total of 18.7” by December 13th. 

Granted, last year we had a fluke snowstorm that shut down the Thruway, but such little snow is not the norm around our great city and certainly the 52 degree temperatures in mid-December is highly unusual as well, so what gives?

According to the National Weather Service, the majority of the disparities are the cause of an unusual Jet Stream patter

Hauntings in Your Town

Hauntings in Your Town

For paranormal investigators, Halloween means more than just Trick or Treating, dressing up in costumes and scaring the wits out of each other, it’s about the heightened ability to communicate with the spirit world.

While you can communicate and experience the paranormal all year round, there is undoubtedly something extra “spooky” about this time of year that tends to bring out our inner fears.

TV and Hollywood have now brought this field into the forefront with shows such as the Travel Channel’s hit show Ghost Adventures and the Sci-Fi network’s popular Ghost Hunters, and who can forget the major success of the Paranormal Activity franchise.

In fact, those very shows have investigated haunted buildings right here in our own backyard on numerous occasions.
