Snow (but not really that much of it)!

Hailing, as I do, from points north of New York City, I thought today's snowstorm, with two inches of accumulation and a few swirling flakes, was pretty weak sauce, but it proved enough to strand a city bus just below the crest of the hill on Sterling west of Franklin. I suppose it's still snowing--maybe our blizzard is just a late bloomer.
Bloomberg stressed the danger posed by heavy snow accumulation in a press conference yesterday, and of course, city schools were closed and hundreds of flights were cancelled. Fair enough--better safe than sorry, and who doesn't love a snowday--though part of me wonders whether New Yorkers and their mayor weren't just getting jealous of DC's snowpocalypse.
