The Great and Harrowing New York City Blizzard of 2010

After somehow missing out on last week's blizzard, which dumped a foot of snow on Washington, D.C. and Philadelphia, New York is finally getting hit by a proper snowstorm today, the Blizzard of 2010. Local news stations are going bonkers as they always do when it snows, with man-on-the-street interviews and the mayor talking about how great our snowplows are. The snow started sometime overnight and is expected to continue through 6:00 a.m. tomorrow, leaving us with more than a foot of white stuff on the ground.

Due to the inclement weather, Zachary's school is closed today, as are all New York City schools, so I took the morning off work to take care of him while Jenn went to 30 Rock for a big meeting. We bundled up in warm clothes and took a walk to McCarren Park, which is just down the street from our apartment in Brooklyn. While we were there, we decided to film our own on-the-scene snow report, and here it is. Enjoy your snow day, everybody.
