You Might Have Heard, There's a Snowstorm Coming
Thursday, February 07, 2013
Some white stuff is headed this way. How much? Nobody knows. Here's how the city's preparing, and we want to know about you.
The National Weather Service is predicting anywhere from six to 10 inches in the city, and up to a foot in the suburbs. (If you can decipher the ever evolving forecast, let us know.)
Are you worried about the storm? Are you meh? Are you prepping? What are you doing to prepare? Let us know and we'll use some of your comments on air.
WNYC's Stephen Nessen has identified four types of New Yorkers when it comes to snowstorm prep:
