Look, I know you don't want to hear about the incoming weather, anymore. Spring has sprung and all of that, and you wanna be done with the snow. You'd probably rather save yourself the click on this Accuweather link explaining it all more scientifically than your local blog-writer ever could, right?
Let's just get down to brass tacks:
In case you're wondering: Yes, Long Island is in that 12-18 inch band that'll hit us by Wednesday night. That's significantly more snow than we got with regards to the previous two storms, most of which had melted off of our sidewalks by the end of the day. It's being called Nor'Easter 4, but as one Twitter user, Robbie, explained:
#Noreaster4 ??? Everyone realizes #Foureaster is dangling right in front of them as the much better hashtag???— robbįe? (@rj_batch) March 20, 2018
Basically put another way by Mary Flaherty, whose name is quite alliterative by the way:
Yesterday, I was supposed to only be getting 1-3 inches of snow. Now I'm getting 1-3 inches PER HOUR. #Noreaster4— Mary Flaherty (@Nightinghawk) March 20, 2018
So, you know the drill. Now for me to re-post some common winter safety tips:
Jesse Pohlman is the editor/producer/whatever of The Weekly Freeporter, which is in Retirement Mode and mainly only covers issues that effect all of Nassau County/Long Island. If you're a science-fiction/fantasy fan, he also writes those kind of novels, available through Amazon.
