Last time it snowed (Jan 27) we got about 20 inches overnight, on top of the almost 2 feet of leftover snow from the last major snowfall (Dec 26). It was completely crazy! Since I failed at sharing pics the day of the storm, here's a bit of what it looked like:
My house as I left in the morning... that's my dad in red operating the snowblower
Most streets hadn't been plowed nearly enough to make a difference
PJ had a difficult time getting his work truck out of the snow... it got stuck about 10 times between his driveway and the nearest plowed street
That is a snowman... yes, it is about 15 feet tall... I wish I could've seen some in-progress shots of that!
I met Gina at the train station... she was there a little before me, and we both waited about an hour and a half for the train!
When a train finally did arrive, this is what was towing it! Since the 3rd rail (which carries the electricity for the trains) was snowed over, they had diesel engines towing the trains.
And once I got to Manhattan, it was a total mess!
I left my house at around 7:40 that day, and got to work just before 11. Thats over 3 hours of travel! It was crazy, but my office wasn't closed, so I just went in and made the best of it. And while a 3 hour commute isn't really my favorite, I wouldn't mind a few more inches of snow before this season is over :-)
How much snow are you getting? As much as here on Staten Island?<3 barb
