    Man, he dodged a bullet there. That could have done a lot of damage had it fallen a few degrees closer to the house.

    It happened - there's video on Twitter. The wind at the NYC airports was insane, probably hurricane-strength gusts at times.

    To put it another way - Mother Nature is helping renovate the LGA sh*thole.

    Oh, I am well aware of how bad the winds were in LGA, DCA, and PHL were yesterday. When ops told me about the hangar, they mentioned Hurricane Sandy didn't even do that.

    We're still in the process of getting everything back together.

    When I had my Wrangler, which is basically a square box on wheels, it got moved on the highway when there were high winds. I can only imagine a semi.....

    Heard about 9" expected in the metro, a bit more north of the metro.

    An of course the Weather Terrorists have overdone it again. They are already cutting that in half. Meanwhile every district cancelled school last night and we havent gotten even a centimeter yet and wont til this afternoon.

    The snow likely won't be as much as originally forecast, but the streets outside my building have a nice layer of icy slush upon which the snow will sit. That makes for the most fun!

    The good side of this is that I'm getting a two-hour early parole today because of the weather.

    Good thing every school district in the metro cancelled...still no snow. What a hilarious miscalculation.
