I live in the part of New York city that's very warm - right over Grand Central station among all the downtown buildings. It sort of feels like the city's internal organs... so warm in their metabolism that they are melting off a lot of the snow.
Still, there's a whole lot of snow. I read that it costs the city $1 million for every inch of snow it has to clean up. The issue being, where does all that snow go? there's no extra place, no giant wal mart parking lots like there are out in the suburbs where you can just make a huge pile and leave it until April. It all has to go away... Yankel's trains are not running today because they get their electricity from the tracks, and the snow is cutting them off from their tracks...
Cool, right? It's so quiet outside here. The snow is hushing everybody up.
