Wait, weren’t we supposed to get 20-30 inches of snow? When we woke up this morning, we were expecting a snow-ma-geddon that we were supposed to tell our grandchildren about. (I walked 15 miles, uphill both ways with newspapers wrapped around my feet just to get to school!) Things were supposed to be so bad that there was a travel ban on New York and all public transportation shut down from 11 p.m. forward.
So… about that. We took a quick walk around the Court Square area this morning and it seemed closer to 5-7 inches of snow. And while that’s made for some annoying weather conditions, we’re New Yorkers. This storm? Fugetaboutit. It doesn’t rank in the top 50 storms we’ve experienced in the last 10 years.
In the meantime, the transportation ban was lifted earlier this morning. Subways and buses are running with limited service as of 9:07 a.m. this morning. Metro-North and LIRR will be running on a Sunday schedule by noon. Schools and parks are still closed for the day and alternate side parking is suspended for the next two days. And that’s it. Back to your regularly scheduled programming of construction updates tomorrow.
