The Blizzard

Well, we broke the record. New York got nearly 27 inches of snow by the time the blizzard ended several hours ago. That's half an inch more than the previous record in 1947 -- and the greatest snowfall in this city since these kinds of measurements began.

Ten years ago we got a storm that was called the Blizzard of the Century, and that was just above 20 inches.

It's been a weekend of shoveling snow and reading books. I didn't travel far, but I got a few photos.

I think this storm confused the forcasters?!.They predicted 10+" of the white stuff in our area and only recieved 3".I shudder to think of the traffic snarl in the city.Good luck!!.
