2/24/2010 Evening Update:
City releases such “valuable” snow information
The Hoboken city web page has a “Weather Advisory” chock full of “important” information.
Such as the Winter Storm Warning – with the wrong dates.
And my favorite: $101.00 per day Hoboken parking specials!!
What? As you can read below (or click the image for a larger version) – that the city is SO GRACIOUS to offer “overnight” parking at $5.00 on Thursday and Friday nights – but only from 8pm to 8am. Otherwise, it’s $8.00 per hour during the day ($96.00 total). In other words DON’T BOTHER. Go to any other garage where it’s about $30/day for parking, and you don’t have to DRIVE BACK IN THE TREACHEROUS SNOW to save your money. What happened to the free parking? Oh yeah, that was during election season. True colors, baby, true colors!
Wicked weather coming tomorrow – for someone!
Last time I checked, it seems that “ground zero” for the most amount of snow and blizzard conditions is going to be interior sections of the NYC Tri-state area. You can see what Accuweather.com Meteorologist Henry Margusity said about it yesterday at 12 noon “worst of the season…” (he later shifted his forecast.)
Additionally – Accuweather.com meteorologist Joe Bastardi said the following yesterday at 5pm: “This is a dangerous event setting up. The threat of a rogue storm making LANDFALL from the southeast on Long Island or around NYC and then turning west into northern pa and southern New York is something that any weather nut should remember for the rest of their life. I really am having trouble describing what we are going to see. Meteorologicaly, this is absolutely awesome… You are about to watch history.. one for the ages. Get ready in the target areas, but marvel at what the weather can do.”
Currently, many forecasters are tossing around a number that the NYC area may be in store for up to 6-12″ of snow (and weather nuts think 18″ or more) – which of course depends on if we get rain or sleet, and the exact track of the storm system. Maybe lots more – or much less…
Stay tuned for the latest reports – as these predictions become more accurate the closer we get. Take the poll below!
If we get a “big daddy” of a storm – send your Hoboken snow photos in!
