It’s 6.30pm and all the excitement has died down, people are back on the streets and some businesses are open.
While it seems like a damp squib now it is worth noting that had the worst happened and we were to have been hit by a category 3 hurricane we would not be laughing, but at the same time, it is quite amusing that this city that mocked London’s inability to cope with a snow storm last winter is now the one at a standstill.
From 12pm on Saturday the entire MTA transport network was shut down leaving the streets empty and offering the vast majority of businesses little option but to shutter. So while Friday saw mass panic in the supermarkets, Saturday was eerily deserted streets with last-minute duct taping of windows and Sunday, some strong winds with the odd fallen tree.
All in all nothing to panic over and time enough for people to have a little fun.
Thankfully whatever the weather GOD goes to work……
