    First off, if you live in Canada or North Dakota and the two or three feet we're supposed to get here in New York is an average winter day for you, I understand. You are all indestructible snow warriors and I acknowledge that.

    Anyway, yeah it's snowing. It's gonna snow a lot more. Supposed to be about two feet if not more by tomorrow here in NYC. A couple of inches so far. The real fun starts tonight. It apparently might be the worst blizzard in decades. I'm stocked up with three six packs of Hoegaarden, three New York strips, half a pizza, salsa and tortilla chips, ice cream, and some apples. It's the most food I've had in my fridge in years.

    There was a good one in the early 1980s, as I recall. New York got good and quiet for a short time.

    Good thing you're stocked up :D.

    Seriously, though, I hope Northeast TBers stay safe through this.

    Chicago is not scheduled to get hit by this, even though we usually end up with similar weather before or after you. Light but steady snow right now, supposed to taper off tonight.

    Here in ct we are going to get hit by the blizzard I have my flashlights and candles ready for power out. Some deep fried pork chops tonight, chocolate cake, cheap chuck steaks tomorrow (il trade for your ny strips). I got some O'Douls amber going (I don't drink but still like a cold beer).

    If power goes out I got extra blankets I have small kids so a fort of blankets will be constructed. Plenty of peanut butter, tuna, and i am contemplating cooking some meals sort of egg or potato salad so if we lose power we can just take it out the fridge and eat it cold.

    Everyone be careful stock up and be prepared. Make sure you have some gallons of water, medicine (colds like to strike when your snowed in and can't go the store, lights, candles, blankets, or better yet if you have a generator your set.

    My job is being a douche about tomorrow. They won't say we're closed just yet even though it's obvious. Regardless, only plows and emergency vehicles are apparently allowed on the road tomorrow anyway so I'm not going anywhere.

    It could be worse, Gorn. You could have MY job and be stuck in Manhattan during this nonsense. Essential personnel, my eye! I miss the days of taking a snow day.

    Upside? I bought a pint of Bulleit bourbon to tide me over in my hotel room during the snowpocalyse.

    You live in Jersey and are expected at work in the city tomorrow? I don't see how that's supposed to happen.

    Will the snowplows in New York City "miss" cleaning the swanky neighborhoods again?

    if it carries a date to differentiate it from a previous blizzardmageddon pr snowpocalypse it can hardly be a world ending event.

    Taxachusetts has closed the roads statewide for tomorrow. The last time they did this (23 and a half months ago, roughly) there wasn't even 1/4 inch in the northwest part of the state, and it never got more than 6 - the state government is SO boston-centric it's sickening. If NWS is not inflating their numbers this time we might actually get 16; which really isn't that big a deal here. Everything west of the Connecticut river should secede, they don't even know it exists.

    You coastal citified types will be catching more and have less ability to get rid of it efficiently, so it will surely throw a monkey wrench in your operations, but the hysteria is way out of hand...No point getting anywhere near the TV - every darn flurry is snomageddon to those fools, so an actual snowstorm is beyond their ability to articulate.

    No ice called for, so really not much to worry about. Relax, dig out, don't go giving yourself a heart attack.

    I parked my old Datsun 510 on West End Ave on NYC's Upper West Side many years ago. In the morning, it was covered and completely plowed in; didn't see that car for five weeks. I did know which mound was mine though.
    Gotta love alternate side of the street parking suspensions.
