A Buffalo barber invited 50 people to shelter in his shop as a blizzard smacked the city this weekend.
As the snow started to fall in Buffalo, New York, on Friday, Craig Elston's barber shop, C&C Cutz, was up and running with electricity, heat, and WiFi.
Unlike those in the city who were less lucky than he was, the power stayed on through the storm.
Elston's story starts when a man knocked on the front door of his barber shop looking for shelter.
Facebook groups created in Buffalo for the storm also shared Elston's message, getting the word out even further, he said.
In total, Elston told Insider he estimates that 50 people came in and out of his shop from Friday until Monday.
Elston stayed with the group stranded in his shop over the weekend, telling Insider he hasn't been home since Friday. »
