I've never parked in a garage unless my parents weren't home.

Anyone in the Point Pleasant area? Is it supposed to stay rain there or change over? If it stays rain I might still be able to make it there tonight.

we had a choice- a parking spot indoors or axtra storage space outside...the choice was easy ...we had a similar choice between a fireplace in-unit or a huge, beautiful, built in living room shelving unit, perfect for the TV, shelves for DVD's/XBOX, etc...we went with option 2. i think we made 2 fine choices

Yeah, but if he gets plowed in that's going to suck.

And we know you're pretty cheap...

www.bestparking.com is absolutely the way to go when I drive into the city for work. My go-to is a garage on 50th and 7th. As long as you're in by 10am all day parking is $16. Check out the site, there are a lot of those deals around.

That would definitely be awesome. I was still holding out (probably foolish) hopes for 1-2 feet, but anything more than 6 or 8 inches is fine with me. I'm just hoping they have enough of a base to open the trees.

I hear that snow depths in the Adirondacks right now vary dramatically from place to place, so I'm really not sure. I was in the High Peaks two weekends ago and it looked like they were getting there in terms of having a solid base, but then there was that one day when it rained.

Any time you want to meet for lunch, let him know in advance. He doesn't have to be in his building until 1:30 but would need to take an earlier bus.

I'm not worried about the snow, I'm worried about the wind. Going to be a lot of trees down.

Just a dusting here so far, but it's supposed to pick up in the afternoon and really wallop us tonight.

I was thinking the opposite, I'll stick around the office until 7 if that's when he gets out...

Haha that works as well...he doesn't always work until 7 though. Just has to make sure he can catch a bus back home.

Seems storm is right on schedule, though I was a bit surprised by the accumulation this morning. Add to the totals if it doesn't completely switch to rain this afternoon. I still think we should see a foot around me, but with the localized banding and how drastic the snow lines are you will see like BG says strange total differences over short distances. Still can be the record breaker for New England. Might see some thunder snow too!!!

I'm excited. We haven't had a hefty snowstorm for I think two years now. Not since the Boxing Day Blizzard two years ago. That halloween crap from last year doesn't count.

Why it was crap, was slush and knocked everyone's power out. That isn't a fun snow storm. All the bad without any "real" snow. At least down here it was all slush. I remember getting dragged out in that nonsense by my ex while I was hungover. Was so pissed.

There was this guy who made the most ingenious app. You SELL your free street parking space. So if I'm in a spot on the UES or UWS and I'm going to leave today at 2:30 pm, I list my spot for $5 and the "buyer" gets the location and meets there at that time. GENIUS. But I think NYC shut him down. God knows we cant have anything useful without the government getting a cut or profiting in some way.

This will definitely open up the ADK trees. I'm hoping the Cats can make 12" out of this, heading to Platty on Sunday (possibly Windham if they get dramatically more due to being ~20 miles more east).

Did you see the 12z NAM? It only has 5 or 6 inches for western NJ where I am, yet most experts are calling for 8" to 12" here, and it's snowing pretty hard and wasnt supposed to START snowing until about 4pm. So I think the models are having a really tough time figuring out the western cutoff where snow will go from impressive to "meh", since it's going to be dramatic, but IMO, it will be in PA (Bethlehem? Allentown?), not NJ.

That has been the problem. None of the models have really lined up. I think that is why most forcasters are going for a middle ground on the storm track. I've seen some runs with the storm way east, and some way west. I'd say the cut off will definitely be out around there. Most in the PA region are expecting about 6 inches. Not all the models can agree whether the storm is going to stall over New England or not. That will decide whether this is a record breaker or not.

Whelp, apparently there has been HEAVY banding over the Lake Placid area for several hours now - Whiteface just reported in at 10" new.... ALREADY
