Today is March 2, 2009. New York City is in the midst of a winter snow storm. Let’s take a look out of my dorm windows. I’m located at NYU Palladium, on East 14th Street, between 3rd and 4th Avenues. It’s definitely a winter wonderland…
NYU, my university of choice, has issued a Winter Storm Alert, saying that we could experience up to 8-12 inches of snowfall, yet all classes are scheduled to open today.
Meanwhile, there are 480 school closings in New York City on NBC New York’s website. Among some of the other closed universities in NYC today are FIT, The New School, and Pace University. Wow. And what’s the National Weather Service saying? Let’s hear a quote:
NORTH WINDS SUSTAINED AT 15 TO 25 MPH AND GUSTING
TO 30 TO 40 MPH WILL CAUSE BLOWING AND DRIFTING SNOW...
WITH VISIBILITIES OF LESS THAN A QUARTER OF A MILE AT
TIMES AND NEAR BLIZZARD CONDITIONS.A WINTER STORM WARNING FOR HEAVY SNOW MEANS
SIGNIFICANT AMOUNTS OF SNOW ARE EXPECTED OR OCCURRING.
STRONG WINDS ARE ALSO POSSIBLE. THIS WILL MAKE TRAVEL
VERY HAZARDOUS OR IMPOSSIBLE.
Sounds like a promising day! A bit chilly, though, so go find your honey bunny and cuddle!
