    4/19 - 4/20 Long-Duration Heavy Rain and Wind Event

    When do we think this realistically exits? We're flying out of JFK at 11 AM tomorrow.
  2. I am talking about today, a Monday. There are hundreds of thousands of kids probably unsupervised because their parents had to go to work. I honestly think it's the social media backlash (coverage of traffic jams) that creates the real fear (more so than actual legal exposure).
  3. I'm not questioning the measurement. I'm just saying it's a hollow 5" with the compaction and quick melting. As meaningful as being the NFC South Champion. :p I have a terrace with furniture on it, so I get to do the suburban picnic table measurement stuff, too.
  4. 5" at Central Park is like when the NFL season is over and the Houston Texans go 11-5 and win the division and you go, "huh." but you know it's meaningless and they'll be out in the first round.
  5. Congrats. I went to bed thinking that's what it would look like here.
  6. I think it's the logistics of getting a million + students on the move that has them avoiding any morning-of calls. Because of the scheduled end time of 4-5 AM and marginal temps I was telling my wife and son all weekend he'd have school. I hate to play armchair mayor, but this was a mistake. When you remember how many hundreds of thousands of kids are dependent on being in school for their meals, how many parents don't have the ability to just stay or work from home, it's is hugely disruptive.
  7. Gonna walk that back... hard. What a disaster. Did it stop snowing at 12:30?
  8. However much we get, it's going to be stunning the AM. Can see the snow is sticking to walls.
  9. yeah, Amsterdam Ave on UWS went snow covered in the last 15 minutes.
  10. Wrong. Spot I was eyeballing must be in a shadow. It was close to 2" in other measurements. 32/30.
  11. I estimate about 1-1.5” on UWS
  12. 33 on UWS. Cars are coated. 20 stories up we are accumulating nicely already.
  13. kind of surprised. Thought with ending time they’d be able to get roads clear.
  14. 34/28. Been spitting snow for a while (even back when it was 39).
