Up to 14 inches of snow to hit New York City, surrounding areas Thursday
AP/NY daily news ^ | 2/12/14 | JOHN MINCHILLO

Posted on 02/12/2014 8:41:53 PM PST by barmag25

As much as 14 inches of snow could hit New York City and the surrounding area tonight, as the storm that has gridlocked the Southeast comes north.

AccuWeather Meteorologist Tom Kines says the snow will begin to fall around midnight and last through most of Thursday. The latest National Weather Service forecast map shows that the city will likely get between 10 and 14 inches, depending on whether precipitation changes over to rain during the day.

People in New Jersey and Long island will be much luckier, Kines said. He expects they'll receive just a few inches.

And the imbecile mayor, via his brain dead schools Chancellor, has just announced that city schools will be open Thursday, so that teachers and students can travel in what the National Weather Service has termed “treacherous” travel conditions in order to reach schools where less than 50% of the students will show up. Just proving that the NYC schools system is just a big babysitting service and place for illegals to hang out.

As much as I absolutely hate precipitation, I’d prefer it to stay snow for the whole time, because first getting that, then warming for rain, then freezing again for snow will shut down the city. Most, if not all roads would become impassable.

No offense, New Yorkers but those of us in Michigan are glad we dodged the bullet on this one. We’re way over our quota for this winter anyways.

I guess we Southerners can make fun of the Northerners that have made fun of us and our recent experience with ice and snow-—sorry for the intelligent New York preppers who know better and are calling foul on their “leaders”;

but, not a drop of sympathy for the libs in the city that will depend on the gubmint for any help.

I will have to depend on my own snow shovel that I keep in my car to shovel it out to drive to school in the morning, to babysit the few students who will show up. No serious educational processes will take place tomorrow. They’re keeping school open so that parents won’t have to find babysitters. Oh, and to give out the free breakfasts and lunches to students whose parents can’t even get it together to pack food for their own children.

During the last fairly bad storm, he kept the schools open too. I guess Marxists just do whatever they want, no matter the consequences.

Aha! Just heard on the radio that a major reason I have to endanger my very life to get to school tomorrow has NOTHING to do with education!! The brain dead Chancellor wants to keep the schools open because---are you ready for this?---"the food the students receive in school might be the only hot food they get today."

A full-blown Communist mayor and his commie minions. Wants to give I.D.s and and other privileges to utterly illegal aliens. And endanger teachers and students so that the real loser parents' offspring "can have the only hot meal they're likely to have." Did I also mention that some schools have NURSERIES in the basement for the babies of students? And that an attendant is paid to stay there and care for the babies? It's true.

Build your own emergency car kit that could save your life

http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/chat/3121404/posts?page=58

Just a few days ago sfter Atlanta got shut down by a storm I suggested such a kit and was not so much surprised as disappointed by how many FReepers thought that carrying such a kit was foolish. Just goes to show that there are even some FReeppers who rather depend of FEMA or the National Guard to bring them a bottle of water, a MRE, a warm blanket and a kiss for thier boo-boo and maybe even get thier picture on the national news rather then to take any precautions themselves.

I remember one particular FReeper when I was detailing the small kit I kept, Slepping bag, old set of sweats, a couple pairs of soxs, a old moving quilt, flashlight, a few other odds and ends, plus some hard candy and a couple of rolls of vacuum packed Ritz Crackers and a jar of peanut butter, then I commented: “Is that so much is it really?”; Well this FReeper replyed back: “Ritz Crackers and Peanut Butter, really?”

Just goes to show that even among FReepers there are jusr some people who just LOVE being a victim!

If you say so, although 84 degrees does make winter a whole lot nicer. I really feel for people that live in something colder than the freezer in my kitchen.

God Loveya, EinNYC— my previous comment had nothing to do with what you’re going through.

“A full-blown Communist mayor and his commie minions.”

YOU’RE the babysitter for the absent “parents”.

Stay safe, stay SANE.

Those of us that are NOT teachers have NO idea what you go through daily.

Do your own due diligence.
Look at the Radar.

http://radar.weather.gov/Conus/full_loop.php

NJ and LI are bookends to Manhattan for this storm.

Also, the one in Minne right now is what is going to hit Chi/Mil/Det tomorrow and then (maybe) NYC-area.

So tha mayor dictates that children must go to school, not for education but for food.

When will tha mayor dictate to the Sanitation workers to pick up the garbage which has not been picked up in two weeks? Is he waiting for the snow to cover it?

The garbage is taking up the space on the sidewalks when snow would be shoveled. This is going to be a fine mess.

Oh wait, maybe he intends not to have certain areas plowed again.

"This just in. FReeper in New York posts pic of storm. "

Judging by the pureness of the snow, photo had to have originated from UPstate New York. New York City snow is grey bordering on black.

“Just proving that the NYC schools system is just a big babysitting service and place for illegals to hang out.”

It is worse than that; if the teachers’ unions have to work 180 days per year, it will count as a day if 1% of the kids show up. Teachers are angry because their vacation plans are at risk.

DeBlasio is giving every indication that he is an idiot as well as a communist.

What is the point of a state of emergency if you keep the schools open? Esp. in NYC which really has a big school population. Sure, most of the kids probably walk to school, but not the teachers.

I saw this on FB before, posted by a guy from NJ, that’s how stupid DeBlasio is, even people who live hundreds of miles from NY realize it!

It’s really coming down here now, we are about 40 miles (as the crow flies) from NYC and it looks like it’s going to snow all day.

DeBlasio’s stupid school chancellor kept school open so the students ‘can get a hot meal’. Far be it for parents to feed their own kids.

In NYC’s defense, it is not difficult to navigate around during snow. Most students either walk to school or take mass transit (which almost always runs.) It’s the suburbs that are difficult to navigate.

Kaiser Wilhelm has never held a real job. He has a lot in common with Obama. Useless, incompetent, and marxist.

People in New Jersey and Long island will be much luckier, Kines said. He expects they'll receive just a few inches.

Yeah well this person in NJ is up to 8 inches of snow with one inch of ice on top of it, and counting.

Once again, as it has become the norm, the more-important NorthEast, (woe is I), is under threat of winter weather, no different than any other winter weather, that I experienced in the first 19 years of my life, or during the timeframe of 1985 to 1994, to include a crazyman shooting his victims on a Long Island commuter train, on the cusp of the 1993 blizzard.

Ho-hum, weather channel, ho-hum.

I think your car kit sounds perfectly reasonable. I don’t have snow to contend with but I have carried an emergency kit in my car my whole life. I haven’t needed it yet but who knows when I might?
