The headline for the story is "New, Dangerous Blizzard for D.C., Philly, NYC and Boston."
There is the potential for a foot of snow or more from Washington, D.C. to Boston, Mass.
People should be prepared for slow or no travel as the storm intensifies upon nearing the Northeast coast Tuesday night into Wednesday. Schools will close, commerce will be impacted and accidents will occur.
Lower temperatures, strong winds and deep, powdery snow could make this the worst of the two storms even in areas that were hit hard with the last.
From a meteorological standpoint the prospect of two blizzards in less than a week for the same area is absolutely amazing! Three storms delivering over a foot of snow in one season is unheard of in some areas.
In terms of a human factors, this one may bring life-threatening conditions to the homeless in the region. Shoveling snow in the extreme cold could pose serious health risks.
Let's assume the prediction is right and a dangerous blizzard dumps a foot or more of snow along the East Coast from D.C. to Boston.
How much do you want to bet that all of the I 95 corridor cities call school Tuesday night but Klein sits all snug and warm in his Park Avenue duplex and waits until 6:30 AM to call NYC schools?
And that's assuming that he even calls it all.
New York public school chancellors and mayors hate closing the largest day care center in the country for any reason.
Even for dangerous blizzard conditions.
Guess we'll all just have to meet at NYC Educator's blog and trade snow stories!
