SnowaMania III has begun, and it's only going to get worse

Stay home, if you can. That message keeps coming out of my TV. The biggest story of the day -- the only story of the day -- is the weather. It's SnowaMania III, brother. Or the Snowpocalypse? Snowmageddon? Snowgasm? SnOMG? The Blizzard of Oz? (Someone should be paying royalties to Ozzy Osbourne whose 1980 album was titled the same.)


The forecast calls for 6 to 12 inches of snow (and 20-plus in some areas) with winds blowing from 20 to 40 mph, and really effin' cold temps. I snapped the photo above of Broadway around 7:45 a.m. Not a lot of traffic, and not a lot of problems. But snow is covering the streets, and it's only going to get worse, according to every meteorologist ever.



Here's a look at West 11th Street.

Everything is canceled (schools, flights, games, etc.) except work for some of us. We'll check back in throughout the day with more. What are you guys seeing out there?
