It was a cold day and also Valentine's Day

Photos by Derek Berg...

Sunday morning (today!)

Been awhile since I may have been the only person in Tompkins Square Park. The dog run was empty (at least when I walked through at 8:30 or so...) I did eventually see a Parks employee emerge from the office (he was singing, it was kind of nice) ...

Perhaps the windchill has something to do with the lack of Parkgoers...

Also, there is one hearty Greenmarket vendor setting up (the bread guy/person) along Avenue A...

Updated noon

Several more vendors have arrived, including the folks from Stannard Farm Vegetables...

The morning after the day of the blizzard

[2nd Avenue at East 10th]

Just a few early morning photos... as people and machines continue to dig out from yesterday's snow "event." According to The New York Times, Central Park counted 26.8 inches of snow, the second-highest total ever recorded.

I do not know how much snow fell in Tompkins Square Park. What I was going to use as a gauge has been destroyed or stolen. Anyway. Enjoy the day. And it's really slippery out. As you might expect.

[Updated] Have you stocked up yet for a visit from Jonas?

Speaking of snow... Vinny & O saw a larger-than-usual crowd at Key Food on Avenue A last evening... "it was a lot crazier at the checkouts, creating that usual no-move zone. Everyone was talking in line about Jonas." (BTW, The Weather Channel came up with the name Jonas, so it's not really official.)

We were at Key on Wednesday night for a few non-Jonas supplies, and noted a run on Corn Pops.

Sober predictions see anywhere from 6 to 18 inches of snow hitting the NYC area — under a "blizzard watch" — starting Saturday morning. This is all subject to change, of course.

Meanwhile, the MTA has announced their possible blizzard emergency plans here.

We'll update throughout the day with any relevant, uh, updates at least until the power goes out.

And if you want some temporary work shoveling snow and helping grow beefy triceps at the same time, the city is hiring.

Updated 4:55 a.m.

The National Weather Service has upgraded the forecast to a blizzard warning. Scary graphics to follow. And exclamation points!!!!!

(Speaking of Whiteout, I always liked that Boss Hog record.)

And I'll be updating more often (probably!) at the @evgrieve Twitter thing.
