^ You better be careful Seb, I know summer is coming.

 

You start your day nicely dressed.

Then you take your jacket off...you get carried away and end up like last time with all your gear off.

As a consequence, New York Governor Andrew Cuomo declared a state of emergency as 10 other state governors have done. He also announced a ban on all travel on New York City area roads, as well as Long Island, except for emergency vehicles, as of 2:30 p.m. EST (1930 GMT). All bridges and tunnels into the city from New Jersey will also close, he said.

 

Subways running above ground and trains operated by the Long Island Rail Road and Metro-North will halt service at 4 p.m. EST because snow falling at a rate of 3 inches per hour proved too much for plows on roads and railways, Cuomo said.

 

The impact of the travel ban on the New York's thriving financial services industry is likely to be minimal over the weekend, and it was too soon to tell how much the heavy snow will affect Wall Street when it is due to reopen on Monday.

 

On Broadway, however, the impact was immediate. Theaters canceled Saturday matinee and evening performances at the urging of New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio, who warned that the storm may rank among the top five blizzards ever to hit the largest U.S. city.

 

 

And they've closed New York.  Gonna be a crappy Saturday night for people that like to have fun!

 

Times Square webcam still show some fun.

Blizzard shuts down most of Nova Scotia

 

 

Some areas of the province could get as much as 70 centimetres of snow with winds reaching gusts of 110 km/h. The western portion of the province could see 40 to 70 centimetres.

That's wild.

October in Los Angeles is still very warm with an average...high temperature of about 24°C (around 75°F) at its height and only 12°C (about 54°F) at its lowest...

That's some kind of rainfall we are currently getting.

And it's highlighting the deficiencies in our local sidewalks; deep puddles and rivers everywhere downtown.

Water main has burst in the 700-block of Herald, cutting off the water supply to nearby since about 3AM.

Crews were alerted at 3AM and are working on the issue now.

No, the work being done is along the north edge of the street. Kinda scary when you consider the similarities with the Johnson Street collapse, but luckily in this location the land slopes so water want to naturally flow west and not south towards the construction site.

The west side sidewalk on Blanshard at the new Hudson pit seriously scares me for a potential collapse.  there are a number of areas where they have been filling gaps under the sidewalk with shotcrete or something similar.
