Zee Blizzard of 2010

As it turns out, there’s a bit of snow in the Northeast right now. So much, in fact, that news stations have taken to calling it Blizzageddon, Snowpacolypse, or, the PC version courtesy of CNBC, The 2010 Winter Storm of Epic Proportions. Whatever branding you fancy, it’s pretty clear that NYC is buried. All airports are closed until at least 4 p.m. today and 180,000 tons of salt have been called to the scene. Need proof?

In interest of full disclosure, I will tell you that I am writing this from the warm comfort of my parent’s home in the Midwest, as my flight was one of the thousands that were canceled in the past couple days.  These are pictures gathered from friends and various websites, and chances are if you are reading this you are somewhere warm and cozy as well. So no judgment, eh?  Here’s a snow-covered street earlier this morning in the East Village.

Walking may very well be the best commuting option at this point. Subways are running with massive delays (shocker, I know). It seems that the LIRR, SI ferry service and NJ Transit has also been shut down for the day.  If you have relaxing visions of staying home with a freshly delivered plate of Pad Thai, you might need to reconsider if all the delivery bikes are buried like this one:

And scientific confirmation that the Northeast is screwed:

Good luck navigating the snowy abyss, folks. Safe travels!
