New York Weathering the Storm

Wednesday, February 10, 2010

A major snowstorm is blanketing New York City, up to a foot of snow is expected in the five boroughs, hundreds of flights are canceled, the U.N. is closed, schools are closed, and all branches of the New York Public Library are closed as well. Winds are gusting up to 40 miles per hour and there is a blizzard warning in effect until 6:00 a.m. tomorrow. So what is going on in the city today?

Check here for the latest transportation updates.

WNYC reporters are beating the streets and sending in images of the storm. Below is a slideshow from around the city. Check back for regular updates. If you have any snow photos from today, send them to newstips@wnyc.org and we'll post them.

Residents of Park Slope were out shoveling their sidewalks and enjoying the snow in Prospect Park. Here is a snowy postcard:

As the snow fell this morning many New Yorkers braved the blustery cold and journeyed to Central Park. Some engaged in snowball fights, others made snowmen. For Melina Palmer and her two sons, Zeke, 6, and Asher, 4, sledding was the program for today.

It is about time that we properly identify what Albert Gore called a Climate Change and others proffered calling the weather changes Global Warming.

The North and South Poles are warming, but the more temperate regions are experiencing also a reversal, from warm to colder. The burning of the fossil fuels, oil and coal, are creating a canopy over the planet that will incubate the earth like a pressure cooker. Sunlight will be diminished in its coverage of the earth. The alternative energy and heat methods are solar, wind, natural gas, and nuclear. The terrifying consequences of meltdown, nuclear waste and its great cost in making safe installations and the explosive problems with natural gas make the more appropriate methodologies of solar and wind power the safer bets. But whatever we choose to do, more sophistication in design must be achieved to receive enough usable power to generate the electricity and power our vehicles. Ken Lane,
