Snowpocalypse 2: The Snowening

snowpocalypse update i m reporting to you live from the aftermath of ...
Global warming, my @$$
There is probably only one good thing about spending winter in London- avoiding winter in the Northeast US:
Widespread power outages and major air traffic disruptions were feared throughout the Northeast on Monday as a massive winter storm that could bring 2 to 3 feet of snow and near-hurricane force winds slowly began its assault on the region. 
A blizzard warning was issued for New York and Boston and more than 1,800 flights had been canceled before a snowflake touched the ground — a good indication of the anticipated severity of the storm. 
It was snowing lightly in New York early Monday, the beginning of what was forecast as a treacherous, 24-hour-plus snow odyssey. 
New York City could see up to 20 inches of snow Monday into Tuesday, the weather service predicted. Parts of New England could see 2 feet or more. 
"This could be a storm the likes of which we have never seen before," New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio said at a Sunday news conference. "Don't underestimate this storm. Prepare for the worst."
Look, all joking aside, if you're in the Northeast right now, stay safe and warm over the next couple of days. I remember all too well what last winter was like; this one appears to be even worse.
