Winter Snow on Long Island 2010-11

All the good snow event names were wasted last year on DC's wussy snow fall. Snowmagedon, Snowpocalypse, even SnOMG. There's been nothing cute and clever to describe the constant snowfall in New York since Christmas. Snownami? Here's the rundown.

December 26-27th: Blizzard of about 2 feet in Floral Park. We got stuck in Massachusetts because of the snow, so we missed the main action. But there was plenty of snow left when we came back.

January 7th: Dusting during the day

January 7-8th: About 4 inches

January 11-12th: About 10 inches- Snow Day for Kevin! He spent the morning shoveling while I slept in.

January 21st: Dusting during the day

January 26-27th: About 20.0 inches plus THUNDERSNOW! More shoveling for Kevin!

January 27, 2011 Snow

January 28-29th: Dusting of snow, calls for just a little maintenance shoveling.

January 29, 2011 Snow

January 31-February 1st: Dusting

February 2nd: Around the country this storm was referred to as the "Monster Storm" and actually involved snow. Here is was all sleet and freezing rain with icy roads. Kevin elected to take the train to work. Unfortunately, the train doesn't work in bad weather either so it took him 3 hours and 45 minutes to get to work. The 6:20 a.m. train was supposed to get to his school at 7:45 and got there at 9:35. He was not pleased at all. At least he didn't have to shovel this time.

They're threatening more snow this weekend, but Kevin is betting it will be too warm and it will turn to rain. We'll see.

28 Weeks + 6 Days 2011
End of 28 weeks- Snow makes a good backdrop for belly pics.

Update: It didn't snow that weekend, and the next time it did was February 21, about 3 inches, but no shoveling required!
