    this was the aftermath this morning in my building's lot in providence. at that wasn't even the highest drift.

    it is mathematically impossible for either hummingbirds, or helicopters to fly. fortunately, neither are aware of this.

    Chopper 12 went up over the area around 1:15 with great footage including an air-to-air shot of Suffolk 4!!
    And my spotter instincts popped in while watching Gov Cuomo news conference at the Highway Dept facility in Melville!! Mmm, I thought I bet he flew in for this, probably State PD Aviation into FRG!! News conference over I kept my ears and eyes open and sure enough at 2:30 saw State Bell 430 cruising NW in the now pretty blue skies!! Interesting I didnt hear them clear Tower though!!

    About a foot here in southern Dutchess. CT got slammed though. 2-3 feet in most places with drifts on to of that. My wife is stranded with family there. The town she is in has closed all roads until at least noon tomorrow, and the street they are on hasn't seen a plow since last night. I've heard reports from some family members that some towns are hoping to get 1 lane on most streets cleared today for emergency vehicles and that the roads may to reopen until Monday. Luckily most seem to be taking it in stride.

    Oh, and forget Nemo, in CT it's "Blizzard Charlotte." Yet another reason why naming snowstorms is a bad idea.

    The three most common expressions in aviation are, "Why is it doing that?", "Where are we?" and "Oh Crap".

    We almost had a blizzard in Charlotte a couple of weeks ago. They were calling for 1 to 2 inches of snow overnight. A number of schools announced the afternoon before that they would be closed. I heard there were some flurries before midnight, but I never saw anything...Snowmageddon averted!

    Grateful that heavy rain this morning wasnt snow!! But now with temps in the upper 40s we have some nasty flooding issues from melting snow and the rain and here on Long Island pretty dense fog has rolled in!
    But pitchers and catchers reporting to camp this week so thats a good sign!!

    My toddler was going nuts. He loves Finding Nemo and wanted to watch it every time the weather channel mentioned it.
