A snow day literally and figuratively falls from the sky, unbidden, and seems like a thing of wonder. -- Susan Orlean

What to Expect When You're Expecting Delilah

One of our witty followers posted the following query: "Hey there Delilah, what's it like there in New York City?"

Funny you should ask, anonymous follower/Plain White T's fan. Right now (11 AM), there's a big surge of snow pow(d)ering through NYC, Long Island, and the bottom half of the Nutmeg State. If you have any errands you need to do, get them done in the next 90 minutes as the snow will pick up significantly when this first wave pushes through.

The dark blue represents snow coming down at 1-2" per hour. And it's heading due north right for us.
We'll see a lull in the storm (but it won't stop snowing) around dusk. Then, between 9 PM and 3 AM we'll see part two of the heavy snow. Some snow bands from round 2 will add 3" of snow per hour. That's about as heavy as it gets for these parts. And those very heavy snow bands will determine whether or not we have a delay or full snow day tomorrow.

A foot of snow is likely when Delilah goes her merry way to the Canadian Maritimes.
