It's a blizzard! Fan-tas-tic. I just drove back from the hospital. Huge snow. Still small accumulations. Very beautiful. White Christmas. You bet.
Update, 7:40PM Eastern. Much more accumulation. Still coming down in bucketloads. Maybe 7 inches on the ground. Everything is so white. The trees are totally laden with snow, the wind is howling, the lights on the street reflect off the snow, it's night, but it's light.
Update, 10:30PM Eastern. Snow slowing down. Lots of wind. Lots of snow on the ground.
Ed Cone (in NJ): "Lots of snow, already more than the 6 inches the TV is now telling us we will get here, as much as our kids have ever seen outside a ski resort."
Halley (in Boston): "It's snowing like heck here "
Daniel (in Westchester): "Murphy got me good this time."
Bump: "Driving doesn't look too pretty here in Connecticut."
Not that we're counting, but we are. I just looked at the server monitor app I installed a couple of years ago and saw that one of our servers has taken over 99 million hits. That's a lot.

It's hard to find much news on Christmas Day. Even so, Weblogs.Com is at its lowest level in a long time. There are only 301 weblogs in the update list. Is that news? Well, it's kind of lack-of-news news, but I guess that's news.
Here's some more lack-of-news-news. It didn't snow in NY overnight. What's up with that. They were predicting Sierra-style snow for upstate NY and some snow for the city. Come on. Snow!
Update -- Andy Kriger informs me that it did snow in NYC, starting about 11PM last night, but it didn't stick. He says it was heavy snow. Now there's some news. Okay we're on a roll now.
