Oh Noes, It's Teh SnowPOCALYPSE!!!!

It's hard to tell in the above pic, but it's snowing like CRAZY here! We completely missed out on the huge storm last weekend, but this Nor'easter today had New York's name written all over it. I just barely made it home from work before the worst of it strikes, and now I'm waiting for Lisa to get home. And while I'm loving all the mayhem that the wintry Armageddon can bring, I would like for all my loved ones to be accounted for first before the angels on high start blowing their trumpets.

The forecasters originally predicted 10 inches for us, then this morning they revised it down to 6 to 8 inches. But now according to the latest update in the face of certain doom, they're all in a panic predicting 12 to 18 inches for NYC alone! Apparently the worst is still to come for us. Pray for our souls, people!

As you can see, just beyond the Bronx County Superior Court building . . .  there is nothing but white. Visibility really is only about 3 blocks in any direction. I suspect by late afternoon it will be down to 1 block. Creepy!

You wouldn't know it by looking at these photos, but there's actually already 6 inches on the ground here. But NYC has crazy efficient snow plowers coming through this main drag at least once every 30 minutes, if not more frequently. So the roads look fantastic! It's just the sidewalks that are a pain in the ass to traverse right now. They probably will wait to shovel those until after the worst of the snow has fallen.
