We shall see:confused:. This 2008-09 winter season has already been a bad year for weathecasters including one prediction for a blizzard back in Early January that instead only 2-3 inches fall.

Keep in mind, several historic bliizards/snowstorms in NYC, occurred in Early March. The most famous storms to date include the infamous 1888 blizzard and the 1993 St Patricks Day March "northeaster' Super Bliizard too (it fell couple of days before St Pattys Day that year)so let see what happens. Night classes at Pace might be cancelled.

Eh, it'll probably end up missing the city as usual, so we're gonna get like only 2~3 inches.

 

No, I don't think so this time, tonight and tomorrow, we're getting a coating, but since on Monday, it's 28-17, it's cold enough, for what's predicted.

I agree. I live about 50 miles from Manhattan upstate so you guys in the 5 boros until now had not a huge snowstorm yet this winter? The Bill is now in the mail(ie chances of this storm hitting)

 

Off topic. While i was out earlier today (2/28/09)someone mention this possible storm turning into the 'B" word (blizzard) if coniditons were perfect is that true?

Yup, very true, if snow showers are suppose to happen on Sunday, (possible 2 inches), and Sundya night, snow and wind begin (at least 7 or more inches), we could have magic snowland. You guys had it already, and you guys are so lucky, but you are not getting pound by this one.

The actual strom starts tonight, and by city rules, 6 inches and above by 7PM, no school, 10 inches in the middle of the day, dismissed early.

 

I live in Brooklyn so, since I saw a weather report, saying that, the "middle" which is anywhere from Brooklyn to Nassau County, they could pick up 10-15 inches. I just hope the magic does hit!!!!!!

I am the opposite from you young man(Ulmer)since i attend Graduate college at night. If our class is cancelled due to the storm we have to make up for it. Usually we stay at least 30 minutes later in the following class or something or you make up the work ie reading the textbook on your own.

 

So not everyone is hoping for a 'snow day' lol:(

I don't mind the snow. I don't mind getting to school at like 11 AM. The snow makes New York City a stunning sight. I just hope that the snow doesn't affected the (A) tomorrow in its elevated portions.

Yonkers Public Schools will most likely be closed, since this city is guaranteed to do a half ass job of plowing........

Dumb question. Other than disaters like 9/11, when was the last time NYC public schools closed for a snowstorm? The Feb 2006 Presidents Day blizzard occured on a holiday.

No matter how much snow falls unless it's more then 3', it won't really matter to me cause I have class at 3pm. Everyone else who is in school, good luck on getting a day off.
