Snowicane Hits NYC – December 26_27, 2010

Filed under: Uncategorized — wally426 @ 3:27 pm

The storm began quietly on Sunday morning, but a few hours later it started to rage. Snow blew sideways into huge drifts. Winds gusted up to gale force. Lighting and thunder rumbled through the night sky. By the next morning, over 20 inches had fallen on the city. Trains and buses came to a halt, and everything was quiet aside from the occasional plith-ploth of passing tires on the snow-white carpeting. The smell of burnt tires was everywhere as cars spun their wheels to no avail.

The next morning…

8th Ave

Flatbush Avenue was a mess. There were at least ten cars completely abaondoned/out of gas in the middle of the street. The rest of the jam was filled with moronic motorists trying in vain to climb the loose snow uphill to Grand Army Plaza…

Opportunistic Brooklynites found all kinds of ways to make a buck. $10 for a gallon of gas for passengers stuck in their cars all night…

.

Or $20 for a quick release from the slippery snow…
