  • Ice and snow melting in the City of Buffalo, USA
    According to the National Weather Service, a series of lake effect events and clipper-type systems dumped 112 inches of snow on Buffalo, New York, in the winter of 2014-15. In an area accustomed to harsh winters, this was still unusual – about 18 inches above normal. But even this impressive amount of snow was no match for the Danfoss snow melt system installed at Canalside.
