End Of Days: Another Foot Of “That White” Cripples The Northeast

- By Bossip Staff

We don’t care what political affiliation you have, you can’t tell us that there’s not something going on with the weather. Call it global warming, or whatever you like but something is causing these blizzards and extreme low temperatures.

The Big Apple was brought to a virtual halt early this morning by another monster storm — this one not only shutting area airports, but also closing city public schools and non-emergency government offices, as well as forcing the suspension of all buses citywide.

According to the National Weather Service, 19 inches of snow had accumulated in Central Park thanks to the one-two punch that hit the city yesterday and overnight.

The Department of Sanitation said this morning that all primary roads had been plowed and are now passable, and that they will aim to have every road plowed by tonight.

The second round of snow began at around 8 p.m., falling at about an inch an hour. It quickly caused horrific driving conditions that included near-zero visibility and ice-slicked roads.

Winds gusted up to 30 mph.

The snow was expected to taper off early today — but it could still wreak havoc for morning commuters.

Subways that normally run express are expected to go local, with some sections that run above ground suspended.

Metro-North is runinning its Harlem and Hudson lines on a Saturday schedule and has suspended service for its New Haven line. The LIRR will be running on a reduced weekday schedule.

The Sanitation Department deployed more than 2,000 pieces of equipment attempting to clear major roads by the morning rush.

The original forecast was for about half the amount of snowfall, and the surge caught officials by surprise.

It wasn’t until mid-morning yesterday that alternate-side and meter parking rules were suspended and a weather emergency declared. The parking reprieve continues today, and trash pickup has been suspended.

More than 1,000 flights had been canceled at the area’s three major airports before they were shuttered

Good luck to those of you reading this from your living room or bed because your job or school is shut down.

    I’m in MD and am soooo happy we finally got some SNOW. We only got a paltry 10in I WISH we would’ve gotten 2 FEET!

    I think that is ice on that car BTW.

  • Honeybee

    IDC what anyone says snow and with lightning and thunder isnt common. Even the meterologist said that this is the first time he has seen something like this. The snow was so bad that ppl were trapped in their cars on the interstate for 6 plus hours. Alot of people had to walk all the way home. I too live in MD and this has too be the worst snow storm ever. The bad new is it’s going to snow again in 24 hours 😦

  • Illuminate Truth "I'd rather die as a lion than live as a lamb"

    The last few years has produced many strange weather events. People need to educate themselves about HAARP (High Frequency Active Auroral Research Program). They need to realize the government has the ability to manipulate the weather (and more) using magnetic frequencies. They own the patents on the technology…so why spend trillions on the research and construction of equipment capable of manipulating the weather as well as obtaining patents on it and then not use it. It wouldn’t make sense. There are treaties between countries not to use the technology in warfare and agreements between the US and others to share the technology. Research these things for yourselves. Check out HAARP and Tesla Industries (and Nicola Tesla). Check the patents out for yourself and keep in mind that patents are only given to things that have been PROVEN to work. Here is one of them:

    Patent# US5762298: Use of artificial satellites in earth orbits adaptively to modify the effect that solar radiation would otherwise have on earth’s weather.

    Like I said…check these things out for yourselves. Don’t take my word for it.

  • LaDiva

    I am sooo sick of this snow… I know we the ppl of NJ are losing our minds digging snow…i need the summer to get their azz over here with the quickness.

      What? Is he into skiing?

    • daisy jay (want some jermaisins?)

      LOL of course not, he slides down hills in the tiny @ss plastic saucers! Skiing…lol

  • sanriobaby =^.^=

    Snow, sleet, lightning, and rain… I’m so over this snow! The snow from the first blizzard hasn’t even had a chance to melt yet! But then again, it’s winter so it’s to be expected.

  • daisy jay (want some jermaisins?)

    Until then, these reports are nothing to be afraid of. Nothing to stress over. Is it snowing in Cali? *looks outside* NOPE. Yes, it is winter. Some years are gonna have more snowfall than others, duh. But the news stations and media are making it all a big deal for nothing and it seems like you’re falling into their trap. Oh, and there are plenty or smart people on here. You….are probably not one of them.

  • TIT_4_TAT

    LOL I love living N South Florida. Sun and fun. Winter and it’s 70 degree weather or higher.

  • RazeKane

    @ daisy jay

    Do you look as stupid as that dry raisin on your image..prolly (lol). If you’ve noticed most of the media weather men and weather organizations have mentioned that these weather patterns are highly abnormal like your stupid picture..lol. Do more research..then get back to me.

  • mr. make ya feelgood


  • Getem

    Yes, I noticed the lightning as well. Pretty neat if you ask me.
