Southtowns residents carry on during storm

Ron Schauv was shoveling on Wednesday – again.

It seems that’s all Schauv has been doing this winter.

“Just a lot of shoveling,” Schauv said.

The maintenance worker at the South Gate Plaza in West Seneca was clearing the sidewalks around the plaza Wednesday morning before the snow got any deeper in the afternoon.

“It can’t get any worse than the last one,” Schauv said referring to blizzard in January. “The snow is a little wet and heavy today.”

Most of the plaza stores were open during the morning, but business was light, as was the traffic on the roads in West Seneca and Orchard Park. Motorists seemed to be heeding the blizzard warnings.

The snow didn’t stop Bernette Bennett.

Bennett, a grandmother, ventured out for a little shopping and was waiting for the No. 15 bus in West Seneca to take her back home to Buffalo.

“I’m used to this,” said Bennett.

In the Blizzard of ’77, she said, she got stranded.
