Brutal cold wave coming, great
Ultra cold weather sucks!
The end of this week is really gonna blow for me – since I refuse to wear long pants. I’ve made it a couple years now without – and the next three days will be a huge test.
“ARCTIC AIR MOVING INTO THE TRI-STATE AREA.
ON THE HEELS OF A STRONG COLD FRONTAL PASSAGE EARLY THIS MORNING… ARCTIC AIR WILL SURGE ACROSS THE AREA ON BRISK NORTHWEST WINDS. TEMPERATURES WILL FALL SHARPLY OVER THE NEXT SEVERAL HOURS… RESULTING IN THE FREEZING OF ANY STANDING WATER ON UNTREATED ROADWAYS AND SIDEWALKS. IN ADDITION… THE STRONG GUSTY WINDS AND FALLING TEMPERATURES WILL RESULT IN WIND CHILLS NEAR OR SLIGHTLY BELOW ZERO ACROSS PARTS OF THE LOWER HUDSON VALLEY… WITH THE SINGLE DIGITS ELSEWHERE.”
A lesson on shoveling – it’s not that hard!
Speaking of this freezing – nothing is more annoying than not having sure footing while you walk around Hoboken. And with the melting snow that we’ve had the past couple days – might mean some slippery spots in areas. As you can see in the gallery below – they didn’t even do a good job shoveling or plowing common public pathways, like at Pier A Park. And then there are developer properties like the Clam Broth Corporate Center on Newark, which was a total mess – days after the recent snow!
- Shoveling while it snows is a nice courtesy – but at least shovel once the snow stops!
- Salt is really helpful. Please buy a bag or two. This helps maintain traction just in case there is melt-off and re-freezing.
- Check the conditions regularly – they may change, ya know?
Have a nice day, and stay warm this week!
