    Snow in New York

    I see the snow did appear, like the warnings said.

    I'm sure there was a film about it a few years back with a Statue of Liberty up to her neck in ice. It was an awful film.




    eta: though I have found a magnificent review of it...
    The characters in the movie would have to be massively
    deepened to be called shallow. The major conflict is
    that of the Quaid character, who has missed much of his
    son's upbringing owing to his penchant for jumping crevasses
    on remote ice shelves. His wife's anger at this I rate at
    137 MilliPeeves, where one Peeve equals the feeling you get
    when the coffee shop runs out of your favourite creamer, and
    you have to use your second favourite. This is understated
    acting.

    The entire review deserves to be red.

    It’s normal. You must provoke. You must insult the belief of all monotheists. You must make fun of the belief of all monotheists.

    Yeah, it's more than the warnings said. 6pm, still going strong after starting about 21 hours ago, with another 13 hours predicted. The bad thing is the wind, can knock you right over. I was out for a bit because my son taunted me "You'll be sorry if you don't!" It was hard, took me half hour to walk completely around block. Am used to cold & lotsa snow from living in Wisconsin & New Hampshire. Could have stayed out longer, but couldn't answer my own question of "Why?"

    Ranked #1 snowfall in DC/Baltimore. Drifts were about 6' or more, had to shovel side of house 3 times to keep the heat. But no school today.

    Yeah, "The Day After" That film was only worth watching for the special effects. I particulary laughed when Quaid, after braving the storm and ridiculously getting his buddy killed, finds his son at the same exact minute helicopters arrive to evacuate everyone. Duh.

    We've ben getting tons of moisture here in New Mexico as well. It's snowed six times and we had our first double snow day in a half century this year. Thanks for everything El Nino. These are the San Juan mountains just thirty miles to the north of my house.

    I fear "unbelievable" is not a term of commendation.

    My cousin in Maryland has posted pictures of their neighborhood. a rather large complex of town houses, with common parking areas buried under 4 feet of snow. the snow plows have nowhere to even begin moving all of the snow. it could take days for them to be able to get out to the street.

    Heck. I've seen the San Juan Mountains look just about like that in June, even. one of my grandkids lives just about thirty miles the other side of them from you.

    You guys ought to meet in the middle, some day.

    Same thing from my niece in a suburb of Baltimore. Her street, in a neighborhood of large homes, is under 4 feet of snow, which they have to work their way over to get to a larger street which has been plowed.

    The snow is still melting here in Baltimore, schools still closed. But I think enough will melt away we can return tomorrow. Lots of shoveling for days, lots of refreezing ice at night.

    When you think there's all that beach and fresh air round Acapulco, one wonders quite what the relative attraction of snow-laden Baltimore might be. Not that I've seen Acapulco, but it does sound attractive.
