Although I live in NY, I'm far from NYC where the storm was to really hit hard. In my area, there is a O% chance of precipitation until Monday and then only a 10% chance. Warming up to the middle 40's is predicted on Tuesday with a good chance of rain. I've lived through decades of tough winters and very happy that this one seems to be much milder.
As a side note, while the drop of the cost of oil has done havoc on the Stock Market, it helps the common man on the street. I know there is a rippling effect to all of this but it just seems as if the oil barons won't be making their billions this year. However, not a win-win scenario at all. This all translates to a seasonal cost of $7,000 last season to which I think will be close to a $3,500 coast this season.
The very best approach to such a storm as this weekend is to simply stay home. Shovel the walk and driveway and stay warm and snuggled inside.
