Brian,

I am a 74-year-old black man. In 1961, I was a naval officer stationed in Kodiak, Alaska. One weekend, I went to Anchorage, Alaska on weekend leave. I wore ordinary dress shoes. Anchorage had a lot of ice on its sidewalks and streets. Went I got back to Kodiak, my feet ached with pain. I was told that I had a mild case of frostbite. I was also told that as a person of color, I should be particularly cautious of cold weather. Perhaps you might mention to your listeners of color that they may be especially vulnerable to the frigid temperatures in our city today and should be guided accordingly.

Love Brian's show. Want to point out that schools were closed not only because of the amount of snow that fell in NYC but because of the high winds and low temperatures. It was truly unsafe for children to be outside. The winds were not predicted to calm down and the temperatures were not predicted to rise until mid-day when it would be more safe for children to be outdoors. Thank you.

Truth & Beauty from Brooklyn

Border Midwood/Marine Park, Brooklyn: about 6" most places. Snow plow did my street about an inch before I left for work at 7:20 this morning. Residential sidewalks NOT shoveled. Kings Highway commercial sidewalks being cleared as businesses open. It was easier walking to the train on the streets than the sidewalk.

Northbound B/Q trains running on local track. Any switching problems at Prospect Park would affect BOTH the B and Q trains, but we went through there quickly enough. There was a B train stuck on the northbound express track at Kings Highway, which is why all trains wound up running on the local track.
