Blizzards and Snow Storms are part of Living in or near New York City

   New York Shut Down – Roads Closed and Broadway Shows Canceled

It amazes me that every winter we hear the same kinds of reports. CNN has spent hours showing the photos and talking about the impact. People are killed, airlines cancel flights, tree limbs have fallen, and the snow is very deep. The New York Daily News published photos of all these events on their web site.

This is not news.  This is reality in the northeast United States every year.
