Anyone else think that Mother Nature is trying to clean up the toilet bowl that is the Tri-State area??

This storm was a piece of cake on my commute last night. My train line has been down since Sandy, so it only took me 4 hours to get home last night from the Port Authority Bus Terminal.

I got a flat tire driving home in it at 1130 last night...I got a ride home, but my car is probably plowed in right now. I don't even want to think about it. I'm just thankful I have power...lots of people still didn't have it back from the hurricane, and more lost power last night because of this snow storm. I'm not sure I've ever seen 8 inches of snow this early in the season before.

You are right... hurricanes start at 74. 70 is a really farking strong tropical storm though.

Don't know about NY but we got nearly a foot of snow in CT last October. The leaves were still on the trees and the damage was amazing. No power for a week or more and lots of fun.

yeah, last halloween we got about an inch (long island)...I guess it was worse elsewhere, but that was about as much snow as we got all winter last year.

The NYC area is on the dividing line between warm, tropical air of the South and the freeze-your-ass-off arctic shiat they have up in Canada, so we get both.

Lot of trees and stuff down. Guy I work with in westchester says he got 2 feet.

At least it hid the mounds of trash they are still picking up from sandy.

/It's been a farking madhouse all week so far


I was on a bus by 4PM. Told my boss I'd log in from home, which I did. On the way home, heard the dispatch advising of a break down in the Lincoln. I think if you are stupid enough to drive a car that is on the verge of breaking down into a Hudson River crossing, the punishment should be that your car is unceremoniously bulldozed out of the tunnel until it is a pile of useless debris, which then needs to be removed from the premises at the driver's expense.

I also think the HOV restrictions at the tunnels should be made permanent.

And that NJ Transit should spend less capital on palatial rail stations and transfer stations and more money on hardening their systems against barely Cat -1 storms. Another tunnel under the Hudson would be nice too, but our governor didn't think that was important. Yet, he sure seems to care about the "people of New Jersey" these past few weeks. I haven't seen him at the PA or Secaucus Transfer Station yet.

End rant. I guess what I am really trying to say is, fark this and I am tired of this place.

Only a few inches of snow in Ridgewood. I can't imagine that there is 2 feet of snow less than 20 miles from where I am but I guess it's not impossible.

Would be really nice if they extended the No. 7 train under the Hudson to Seacaucus, and finally completed the Bergen-Hudson Light Rail so that it actually enters Bergen County.

Last Halloween we had maybe an inch of snow on the ground in central Jersey and it melted the next day, but the real problem was that there were still leaves on the trees that just collected the snow and then broke the trees under the weight. At least Sandy got rid of most of the leaves last week.

The problem last night in the Lincoln was an 18 wheeler that was too tall wedged itself in one of the tubes and they had to let all the air out of the tires to get it out.

Your cousin must live west of the tracks in a nice house. Mine are less than half that. I bought a small house for the location: close to town and the train (which just got a $40M station it didn't really need and is inoperable right now anyway).

Taxes in north jersey in general are high. We looked in Rutherford and the taxes were comparable to Ridgewood for the house / property you got. When we were looking in Hoboken we saw $10k for a 2/2 1000 sqft, and that was before you add building maintenance on top of it.

Yet you hear nothing at all of a storm that's about to hit another part of the US with 125 MPH gusts and over a foot of snow. It's just like when a 5.0 earthquake hits the east coast. It's major news out there but when a 5.0 hits California we just roll over and go back to sleep. It seems like the east coast is completely overwhelmed by something that just gets shrugged off in the rest of the states.

California storm warning

I am aware that Sandy was bad, I am comparing this to the storms that are about to hit right now and the apparent discrepancy in coverage.

How so? You could take the GWB and ride down through Edgewater. Which would be doable with less cars trying to get through the tunnel.

Sorry you have to go from CT to Jersey City though.

=======================

Yes, west of the tracks. Nice house? OK, house, but in my opinion, not worth the million they paid for it. Yes, they both work in the financial sector in the City.....take the train in daily. Yes, I know all about the rebuilt train station. I ride the bike path from Rochelle Park, up to Ridgewood at least twice a month.

A bit ingenuous to quote only the conditions predicted above 7000 feet. That's a weather report for the somewhat remote Lake Tahoe area. A mountain blizzard isn't news; major devastation in an enormous urban area most definitely is.

If no power not pump to push gas to your house, you would be better off with a diesel or gas and keep fuel on hand. Or maybe propane?
