Great pics! Even NYC looks pure in the new snow.
The Blizzard of 1996 was a severe nor'easter that paralyzed the U.S. East Coast with up to 4 feet (1.2 m) of wind-driven snow from January 6 to January 8, 1996. It was followed by another storm on January 12, then unusually warm weather and torrential rain which caused rapid melting and river flooding. Along with the March Superstorm of 1993, it is one of only two snowstorms to receive the top rating of 5, or "Extreme", on the Northeast Snowfall Impact Scale (NESIS)

So far in Philadelphia the storm has been a dud. They were calling for 1-4 inches today and we basically have nothing. The second half is supposed to hit us tonight and last I heard that could bring up to a foot of snow.
No offense to our friends in New York but you guys can keep it up there...
Pittsburgh they were calling for 3-5 inches, we got about 1.5 inches to about 2 inches between midnight and 3am, then that was it. We were on a level 2 snow emergency. Mainly plows on the road. It just started to lightly snow again about 2 hours ago, so if any more accumulates, I'll update you. I live about 30 minutes SE of Pittsburgh.
(After living through rough NY winters back in the day, this is such a farce how everyone is going insane over this light dusting!)
The season’s first major storm in the New York region was predicted to be historic, with the mayor saying it could rival the record 26.9 inches that fell in 2006. This map shows the amount of snow fallen, in inches, as of the time indicated.
Does anyone remember the North American blizzard of 1996?
