For the second time in as many weeks, Hoboken was spared the worst of what could have been a pretty bad storm.
Last week’s bombogenesis missed us, but severely impacted areas to the north and east. Some of those same areas are getting hit again with this latest system, as the worst of it passes primarily to our north and heads east.
Meanwhile, it’s far from pleasant outside. We’re not buried under a blanket of snow but we’re still dealing with a sheet of ice, as sleet and freezing rain have made the streets a virtual slip and slide. So please get out and clear what you can.
According to some petrified rodent in Western Pennsylvania, we’ll be seeing a lot more of this over the next few weeks.
The key is to take all these weather reports with a grain of rock salt.
It’s winter in the northeast—you want to be proactive instead of reactive. Have an idea of what might happen and be ready to deal with it, but you don’t need to absolutely lose your mind every time a low pressure system rolls in.
To survive winter in Hoboken you essentially need three things:
-A good jacket
-A reserve supply of alcohol
If you can nail those down, you’re already well ahead of the game.
And you might want to have a few decent DVDs on hand.
Happy Groundhog Day…
