Winter travel in surrounding communitiesWe're relocating to Buffalo to work at UB this summer, and we are very interested in purchasing a house in the surrounding villages, such as East Aurora or West Falls. I've been told that the "Southtowns" get far more snow, and that the plowing is not as reliable there. Specifically, I've heard that the throughways (by which one might travel to UB) are extremely slow after a snow, and that there really isn't a good commute option. Is this accurate? Some of the houses we're interested in only have a 30 minute commute according to Google. Is this only valid in the summer? We're also considering the northtowns, like Tonawanda, too. We'd love some expert input.
