A quick jump to the present, because yesterday we had our first Fall Snow. It snowed for most of the afternoon well into early evening, when the snow turned into sleet. But a few hours of powder were enough to bring the City on the brink of chaos. Why? Because not a single grain of salt was to be seen anywhere on the streets. Result? Multiple crashes, road closures, Washington Bridge shut down, train delays, sirens, emergency vehicles blocked, congestion, people slaloming on slippery pavements trying to keep upright. And the snow wasn’t even unexpected – the weather forecast had been accurate for once!
