So I got the news that New York City is already under snow and as I look outside my window I can see that New England hasn't felt the beginning of the storm yet. The last snow storm had activities, schools, and permit parking privileges canceled. Well folks, there is a foot of snow expected later this evening and I'm expected some trouble on the roadways as people commute home from work.
The snow should be reaching Boston in a few hours and when that happens it's going to be a beautiful snow day in winter.
I recommend everyone get their shovels and ice melting salt ready to go. I already have the shovel waiting on my porch and will be bringing the melting salt outside once the shoveling is done. Though I am not fond of snow filled roadways. I am filled with a sense of pride when I shovel the snow covered sidewalks. It's like a service to my community because I see how many people use it throughout the day and my little contribution has made their commute that much easier. I hope you join me in making sure the roads and sidewalks are safe so that no one gets injured while outside...
Here is a recent update on weather conditions across the East coast of the USA...
"Kentucky had half a foot of snow by Wednesday morning as the snow moved across the central part of the state and headed east.
New Jersey and the Philadelphia area could get 4 to 8 inches, and high winds are expected before the storm moves out early Thursday. The city of Philadelphia declared a snow emergency effective at 7 p.m. EST.
The stormy weather was causing some airport delays and cancellations Wednesday. In Philadelphia, about 40 departing flights were canceled and some arriving flights are being delayed, some for up to nearly three hours. There were also delays at Newark Liberty International Airport and one hour delays on arrivals at LaGuardia Airport.
The National Weather Service said significant snowfall was forecast for the New York metropolitan area. Accumulations of up to 10 inches were forecast for the city, Rockland and Westchester counties and Long Island.
New York City declared a weather emergency Wednesday. City officials said any car found blocking roadways or impeding the ability to plow streets could be towed at the owner’s expense. In December’s blizzard, no snow emergency was called, and abandoned cars delayed the progress of plows. Hundreds of buses and ambulances ended up stuck on unplowed streets, and city leaders took heavy criticism for their slow work."
Let me know how you will be spending this snow filled day... has it already hit you? and what have you done to prepare?
I for one love snow, so I'd like to know how you feel about it..?
