Snowboarding with the NYPD: The only way to party during the blizzard

Just as predicted, Winter Storm Jonas turned out to be a massive blizzard that hit the East Cost hard over the weekend with an almost record-breaking amount of snow. Jonas is now the second-biggest snowstorm in New York City history and its 26.8 inches of snow crippled the city’s streets. But not all people stayed indoors during the weekend, and some of them found creative ways to do winter sports out in the streets. More →

A winter storm is coming to the Northeastern United States. As per usual, many of the headlines have been inflammatory and hyperbolized, but there’s no reason to panic. Just make sure your home is stocked with all the necessities, keep a tab or two open in your browser with your favorite weather sites and make a bowl of chili.

And remember, while you’re tucked away all warm and cozy, some other sap is slipping on an ice patch.

How to make sure you’re prepared for this weekend’s monster snow storm

The Northeast has had an unfathomably mild winter so far, but all that ends this weekend when more than a foot of snow is scheduled to sweep across the region from Washington DC up to Philadelphia, New York and beyond. It’s difficult to complain when the temperature was in the high 50s as recently as a week ago, but that won’t make the 12+ inches of snow heading toward the region any less painful to deal with once this upcoming blizzard slams us this weekend.

Are you prepared for the storm? Do you have everything you need in case you get snowed in? And what happens if you lose power? This post will serve as your survival guide, so you should probably go ahead and bookmark it right now. More →
