They knew it was coming, a blizzard which may keep people stranded at home for days from New York City up to Maine. And we heard it was coming too since everything that happens on the NY to Boston corridor is somehow the only news in town. We laughed a bit this morning when Mika on Morning Joe (MSNBC) said at the outset of the program that they'd be following the weather throughout the program.
Ah, the east coast.
Anyway, here is a great photograph of a blizzard in New York City from 1947. Black and white pictures so often are filled with much more detail than color. You are aware of everything in this picture, even the big Ritz Crackers sign in back. click to enlarge
This picture which shows many large trucks stuck in the snow and bunched up together makes me wonder if the east coast warnings for people to stay off the roads will be heard by today's big trucking people. Or will they keep rolling until they're stuck and bunched up on the highways?
