Actually i had a type 2 heart attack, it was not a heart problem at all. It was from bilateral PE's causing my heart to overcompensate as i was suffocating. It's healed and I had no lasting damage from it or the PE's thank God. Can't even see it on an EKG. I walk an hour a day with the old farts in the park. I fit right in.

I'm glad to hear you're doing well. I wish you the best.

It’s absolutly dumping 3” an hour on the UWS some of the heaviest snow I have seen here in 4 winters of doing snow removal for every storm. This is no joke

Same here in Wading river.  Prolific rates right now.

You're in a different climate up there.  Most of us in western L.I. got the shaft.  January 4th, now THAT was a storm, those were some of the heaviest rates I had seen (albeit fairly short lived) since the Boxing Day blizzard.  Today was The Flizzard of '18 for most of us in the immediate metro area. 

However, It is pretty out there even though it's only a couple of inches, will take the dog for a stroll in a bit.

Thunderslush 2018. 

Light snow. 3" of slush.

Now is the time to go out and save those Arborvitae Bushes if you have any. 4-6 inches of heavy slop destroys them if not shaken off quickly.

Solid 3.5-4 inches in Hastings on Hudson.

We're in on that in Hoboken.  Hope it can keep up to make up for some of the earlier low totals.

Continues to dump. Should make it to 8" though it seems like alot more out there

This is the highest impact under one foot snowstorm I've ever seen. Limbs and trees down everywhere. I agree that it looks as if we're gonna end up with about 8 inches.

My own personal snow hole is starting to fill in. It's not a real storm until this gets completely covered.

5.1" as of 5:50PM.

 

Temp is 31.8, the wind is howling and the snow is at least dry enough to be blowing off of roofs now.  We've been experiencing intermittent power outages.  The wind really is cranking now.

We've avoided the dry slot so far.  Snow diminished to moderate intensity, but it looks like heavy snow is about to move back in.

This storm was awesome, 12+ here, but pretty much over now...all you people east shouldn't have had your hopes up, it was never really your storm. Models were west to start and never made it enough east...I never believed those high forecasts for NYC and LI...Would be nice to get these models on the same page one day...until then, don't complain when you get screwed, everyone does sometimes

Yeah but I'm 3o minutes down the road and they busted pretty badly here. We stand at 3-4. Almost what I had on 2/6/10....can't believe the gradients on these storms. Go west from me a few miles and there are big differences.

Thank you. If I hadn't had a strong heart, probably from long daily walks over the past decade, they tell me I wouldn't have made it. i was turning blue in the ER.

This was forecast to be a big snowstorm for the metro area as recently as this morning so naturally a lot of us are disappointed with a few inches.  It's a bust at least for our immediate area, plain and simple.

I'm getting in spring mode anyway so cest la vie.

Agreed
