Sparky doesn't give a f*ck about you and your lightning bolts Zeus.

Around six-feet of snow covered the Buffalo area Tuesday, thanks to a lake-effect snowstorm, trapping residents and stopping traffic. Deaths have been reported as well, 3 of which were from heart attacks.

And another 2-feet of snow is reportedly on the way. Not good.
