Major East Coast Storm

Blizzard Warning in effect for Hoboken NJ and Tri-State Area

Well – here’s your “Historic East Coast Storm!” Blizzard Warning now in effect for the next 2 days or so.

Looks like Hoboken is in the 2-3 foot range – with possibly more. Can’t wait to see how this turns out. Move your cars if possible! The city is also TOWING cars if they’re not moved off “Emergency Snow Routes.” Keep in mind this wasn’t always the case. So you have till 9pm to move your cars tonight. See below for “emergency routes.

Have fun!

Major East Coast Storm possible? Is Hoboken ready?

1/25/2015 1:43am:

As of early Sunday AM – the weather nerds out there are wetting their pants at the possibility of a major east cost storm on Monday and Tuesday. They’re so excited that they’re referring to it as a possible once-in-a-lifetime “Biblical East Coast Storm.”

While all they have to “play with” are computer models and those often can change drastically and unexpectedly – many models are currently calling for a massive amount of snow for our area (measured in FEET). Take a look at that graphic below. 3+ feet for the NYC area.

This particular storm, which will potentially affect our area as early as late tonight / Monday morning apparently has what are called “sharp gradients.” Where the “bulls eye” (wherever that turns out to be) can get paralyzed with many feet of snow (say 40″ or more) and just 100-150 miles outward, you’ll see a few inches. Who knows what will happen.

But can you imagine a 40″ snow storm here in Hoboken or NYC? Fugghedaboutit. All I can say is that if our area is indeed forecasted to be the “bulls eye” later tonight – it might not be a bad idea to take your car(s) and most certainly put them in a garage – or even get out of dodge while the city digs out! Being “trapped” would suck royal ass!

Good luck!

Can we go back to reacting once the storm arrives, and not overreacting hours before a flatke falls? I understand wanting to be prepared, but it’s insane to shut down an entire city because we think we might get some snow.

The city also wants all cars moved on Vezzetti Way so they can dump snow there. There’s already hundreds if not a thousand cars that need to be moved to spaces that don’t exist. Why unnecessarily take away more spaces? And if it does snow as much as expected, that snow dumped there will be there for weeks before it melts. Isn’t there at least one empty lot in the back of Hoboken that snow can be dumped in? Or did the city lose every last bit of land back there making deals with the devil to build more and more condos?

Like your idea of splitting. Might go visit some family outside of Pittsburgh. Better than being crippled for days.
