Haha... I guess they blew it on this one. Looks like 2-3 inches. Nice job on shutting down all transit.

I've got money on that google car technology would be best suited to the transport trucking industry - trucks could be 'on' 24/7 hauling from distribution hubs across the nation - Even the bus industry would benefit simply going 24/7 from bus stop to bus stop (locally and interstate) ... both industries would benefit as the transport industry contributes highly to the road toll and high stress / risks to drivers on tight timetables (sleep deprivation and the use of stimulants to keep driving)

As for personal use cars - People will still demand to have control and still want to enjoy the pleasure of driving. Noting the motor racing industry would be null and void if 'joe citizen' couldn't experience the pleasure of driving a car!

I surmise a balance of google cars and driven cars. I also surmise that google type cars, trucks and public transport would be the only forms allowed within city limits or high density towns while 'non google cars' in our suburban / country regions

Seems a little on the high side. Craigslist is the place to check normally.

Another alternative - some of the local businesses near you may have a back yard or side alley they'd let you use - a covered scooter next to a building is pretty shielded from the elements. Wouldn't hurt to ask or post a few flyers.

Can we just drop the "Powerhouse Arts District" charade and call it South Newport already? I liked the old plan for the Powerhouse Arts District, but it's obvious it'll never be what the community wanted, only what Roseland and Kushner want.

FWIW, Wunderground has been saying a foot or less since Sunday night. However, the National Weather Service has been updating regularly and currently (updated an hour ago) says 16 to 24 inches for Jersey City (8 to 12 overnight before 6 am, another 8 to 12 on Tuesday after 6 am). So the media are getting their hype from a legitimate source, even if they are hyping like crazy. Hard to say with any certainty whether Wunderground or NWS is right.

It's not "over" yet, but it's looking more and more like the major accumulation is going to be east of us. There's nothin' pushing west of Ronkonkoma now. We'll get some more snow overnight, but as far as the potential for "historic" snowfall, 85% sure this is a bust.

NYC employees generally are expected to work even through bad weather ( with the exception of teachers if school is closed). Last year my spouse had 0 snow days despite the fact that it's a job that could be done by telecommute. The city has too many employees and services to allow a blanket day off. So, yes, often NYC employees are the only ones trudging into work.

Here's a link with all the information in one place:

There are links to every type of transit service in the area, airport, school, and road information. This should accommodate everyone.

The worst will be between midnight-7 AM. So what it's doing now or since 3 pm isn't indicative of what's to come. May not be 3 feet, but it's certainly not over.

I don't disagree that the media over-hypes everything, but this is a case where I would rather see NYC/JC be proactive with closing roads, organizing parking, salting, etc. and encouraging people to stay at home even if it winds up being "just foot" than be ill-prepared.

I have a theory that bad weather stories are "comfort food" for news media types - who are completely overwhelmed by the real, difficult events facing the world so throw themselves into making the most of non-stories like 'Snowmageddon 2015'.

I'm looking out my window, and hardly a snowflake in sight - and its only been snowing lightly since 3:00pm this afternoon...

My money is on this being a non-event. See everyone at work first thing tomorrow, sigh...

The models are all still showing some ridiculously cold weather rolling in for the next 10 days or so. The ECMWF model is still showing -10 F for Jersey City on Feb 3.

Low-end model still says more than a foot--though if closer to the high-end model happens, we may not have dug out by Wednesday.

Yeah Ch2 just showed two models..I think they were the ones MDM posted below. One had us getting 35 inches and one had us getting 6.6 inches. Something about the low either hugging the coast or making a shape right east out to sea.

PATH service suspended and all Hudson River crossings closing at 11 says Port Authority

PATH rail service will be suspended tonight at 11 p.m., until further notice, according to a press release from the Port Authority. PATH is scheduled to operate regular service through this evening’s rush hour, and then will run a weekend schedule beginning at 9 p.m. lasting until 11 p.m.

In addition, the Port Authority, with New Jersey Governor Chris Christie's concurrence, will close all trans-Hudson crossings effective at 11 p.m. tonight, according to the release. This includes the George Washington Bridge, Lincoln Tunnel, Holland Tunnel, Bayonne Bridge, Goethals Bridge and Outerbridge Crossing. This decision comes following New York Governor Andrew Cuomo’s Executive Order to put in place a travel ban on all New York State and local roads in 13 counties,

On closed roads, only authorized emergency vehicles will be permitted.

The Port Authority will look to resume service when conditions permit, according to the press release.
