    I lived in Mayville (NY State, close to Chautauqua Lake), and I know exactly what that is like. It's not really upstate (since it's much closer to Ohio than to Buffalo), but pretty damn cold for me!

    Not being enough, I lived there in '92, when the Buffallo Bills faced the Wash. Redskins in the Superbowl. Since I had previously lived in DC (Arlington, VA, actually), Iwas a Redskin fan. I was kinda "forced" to change sides when the game began!
