Bills fans see team logo in blizzard weather radar

It is some prohibitive weather.

The Buffalo Bills logo is everywhere in Western New York, and now the Bills Mafia even sees it in the weather forecast.

Weather radar images of the monster snowstorm that dumped at least 77 inches of powder on Orchard Park, New York, between Thursday and Saturday appeared to depict the iconic logo: a blue charging buffalo with a red stripe.

The comparisons started when “extreme weather enthusiast” Colin McCarthy tweeted a photo of the storm’s path Wednesday, according to The Buffalo News.

Bills fan Kali Mariakas noted the similar shapes and colors and asked if other Bills fans saw the resemblance.

Team officials then got in on the action, posting an obviously doctored photo of the radar on Friday that highlighted the similarities.

“Brb goes outside to shovel,” the tweet read.

The blizzard prompted Sunday’s game against the Cleveland Browns to be moved to Detroit’s Ford Field due to “public safety concerns and out of an abundance of caution,” the team said.

Ford Field was available because the Lions were scheduled to play the New York Giants at the Meadowlands on Sunday.

Bills fans hoped the display of team spirit from the sky would help the team snap a two-game skid Sunday, even if they were forced to take the home game on the road.

The 5.5 feet of snow Orchard Park recorded by 7 p.m. Friday was potentially a New York State record for the most snow in a single 24-hour period, according to WGRZ-TV.
