BLIZZARD: Governor Cuomo, Friend of the Jews, Declares State of Emergency in New York

UPDATE ON THE UPDATE:  


• The storm brought only seven inches
of snow to New York City, far less than expected.
• But north and west of the city and in New England, it was another story. Up to 30 inches fell along the New York-Pennsylvania border.
• Aboveground subway service and limited Metro-North service were restored around 6 p.m.
• At least 200,000 homes lost power across the Northeast.

New York City is spared the worst ...

On Monday, forecasters predicted up to 20 inches in the city, a storm that would have rivaled the Blizzard of 1888.

But this storm tracked closer to the coast, bringing in warmer air. By midafternoon, so much of the precipitation had fallen in the form of sleet and freezing rain that only seven inches of snow was recorded in Central Park.

B”H THIS TURNED OUT TO BE A TYPICAL MARCH STORM. I REMEMBER GOING TO THE PESACH SEDER IN BOOTS AND STORMCOAT (when I used to live in Boro Park)
