Jay Withey of Kenmore, New York, made sure 24 people who were stuck on the side of the road during the brutal storm got out of harm's way, police said. The blizzard stranded Withey in Cheektowaga, just east of Buffalo, on Friday. He left his car, took refuge in a school, but didn't stop there. He got into the kitchen so he could feed other fellow stranded motorists and used a snow blower to dig out cars from the high snows. Withey said he left the school’s front door open overnight so others could join the group. They were stuck in the school for about 24 hours or so, he said.
