Its not about the damn multi million dollar players. Its about fans like ne who work two jobs and go to two games a year and spent my hard earned money on these seats.
I understand that, but there's also fans/visitors to the city who have gotten tickets and will not be able to go to a rescheduled game. It goes both ways. The whole point of having hockey in an indoor arena is so that they don't have to postpone games due to weather.

News 12



This is for Westchester:
Quote:
The storm now looks like it will rapidly intensify tomorrow as it passes off to our south . . . “bombing out” so to speak during the late morning and afternoon hours. That’s when the snow will likely be coming down the fastest, with even the chance of hearing some claps of thunder. There’s not going to be too much wind building until later in the morning. It’s going to become very windy Wednesday afternoon and evening, so there’s going to be a lot of blowing and drifting snow, and there might briefly be some blizzard-like conditions. Temperatures will hover within a few degrees of 30 during the height of the storm.

It’s not all going to taper off and end until tomorrow evening or even tomorrow night. By then, final snowfall amounts will be 6-12 inches, possibly more . . . all dependant on how much the storm intensifies as well as its final track relative to us, but now matter how you slice it, it’s a big snowfall.

our two meteriologists on the boards are hpnyr and scottyb. listen to what they are saying, earlier in this thread they were saying that the news reporters on the networks tend to either over exagerrate or underestimate storms. hpnyr just said on the last page that this storm could be one for the ages... lets see if hes correct

Yea News12 is definitely underestimating it...6 inches? Not a chance. We are likely to have 3-4 inches already by 7am, I guess they felt like idiots for predicting 2-4 inches last week and we got nothing so now they are underestimating.

I hope its bad so I can telecommute tomorrow.

If the wind is bad, the JMZ might not run since that train feels like its going to fall off the tracks when its heading to Marcy Ave. anyway.

FLY, are you going to be going into work tomorrow or Thursday? How does it work for you guys if roads are impassable. Obviously we need cops on duty but what if you can't get in or can't patrol.

My friend was in NYPD for a few months (until he transferred). I don't think they get snow days from what I remember him saying.

There's going to be some amazing convective bandings setting up. Whoever ends up in these bands can approach 2' or more of snow. Anyone under one of these bands will experience 3-5" an hour with piss poor visibilies. This includes thundersnow.

There was some conern of mixing earlier even into NYC/5 boros. Latest model runs coming in suggest that NYC/5 boros will not see mixing, rather if there is ANY mixing it will be along the immediate coast along the south shore and eastern tip of LI.

Right now, i'd still go with 12-20 inches area wide ---> 5 boros/nassua with locally more, and that locally more could be near suffolk where they will be east enough for convective banding and west enough for no mixing. This is not to say NYC will not see more than 20 inches, it's to say the latest guidance suggests that 12-20 is a good bet. In fact, 15 inches for sure in central park is my call, with most likely more. Winds will be howling. Accuweather is suggesting part of LI/SNE will see hurricane force, fortunately(or not) for us it's accuweather and they tend to go agressive.

This is an high impact event considering its taking place on a weekday. It has a chance to rank up there along with 1996-- possible beat it out in it's own unique ways.

weather.gov predicts a lot mroe than 6 or so inches for us as well. Like 15 or so for Monmouth County.

News 12 is a ****** channel, anyway.

Accuweather was spot on for the last 2 storms for my area, though. I know they go aggressive, but they've been fairly accurate. The others actually underestimated by quite a bit.

Well, I've got my tow strap on my Jeep (93 straight 6 grand cherokee). Something tells me I'm going to be pulling people out of parking spots again. The straight 6 in 4lo can pull a tractor trailer. I <3 my car. Even if shes older than god and has over 300k miles on her.

Wow, bringing back some memories. I think I was 11, it was the best thing ever. No school for like 2 or 3 days. Unfortunately, now it'd be horrible unless I can work from home for two days
