The Big Blizzard of 2010

The morning of December 26th was a cold one, but showed nothing to indicate the big storm that was soon to come.

The weather reports warned of it. Estimates of 12 to 24 inches, coming down at approximately 2 inches an hour. But nothing to indicate the amounts to come. Approximately 12 noon, the first flakes started to fall.

I was in Jersey with my wife's parents at the time and we decided to catch an early train and head home early. It snowed most of the trip. By the time we got home, there was about an inch of snow on the ground and a lot of wind. Arriving home, the snow and the wind continued, white-out conditions everywhere.

Waking up the next morning, I walked to work with the site much like pictured in the slide, About 12 -16 inches of snow on the ground with the streets being an absolute mess. Even now, the Wednesday the 29th, there are subway, train and bus disruptions.
