Parts of New York were literally buried under snow yesterday.

Some people were forced to abandon their cars in the middle of the street as areas across the state were pelted with six feet of white powder. The National Weather Service reported at one point that the storm was dumping about 10 centimetres of snow per hour. To make things even worse, gusting 45-kilometer winds forced the closure of a massive, 200-kilometer stretch of highway. So far, twelve people have been reported dead across the country as a result of the wild weather.

Those are fairly gruesome statistics, especially when we consider that snow is what is used to create notable snow figures like Frosty the Snowman. But what exactly does six feet of snow even look like if you’re not in Buffalo? There’s no better way to simulate that than to use Albertan cattle for scale.

Alberta Beef  

Ah, the majestic Black Angus! What a sad world it would be if this gentle and noble Albertan were to face an unexpected Buffalo-level squall. Where’s the beef? Oh, believe us,they’re there. Images: CP/Thinkstock

Okay, fine, you didn’t come for cows. Here are photos of what actually happened in Buffalo:
