The worst hit area in that storm (Hambden), which isn't close to you, had a max snowfall rate of 1-2" an hour during that storm. I believe during the boxing day storm parts of LI or CT had up to 6" an hour.
You have it wrong. Dec 26 is UNboxing day.
You have the right to remain silent. Anything you say can and will be used to start a religious discussion.

Sure. Just imagine that for whatever reason you weren't able to daven earlier. Wouldn't be better to daven with a minyan?

I got back from the 3:15 minyan mincha, and there was a minyan (I'd say about 20%-30% with taleisim) that was up to Krias Hatorah right next to me.
I've been waiting over 5 years with bated breath for someone to say that!

Not according to my Shas/Shulchan Aruch, but I don't think we're going to settle this here.

They plow the street very often, the wind is very strong here. My car was spotless but the sidewalk next to it had about 15 inches of snow

Nobody lives in CLE for the restaurants or minyan factories.
Obviously. Everyone lives there for one reason only - MS.

I don't remember cold days when I was a kid at HAC. Naaya zachim.
Save your time, I don't answer PM. Post it in the forum and a dedicated DDF'er will get back to you as soon as possible.

 >:(  >:(

We're experiencing a heat wave in NYC today, with temperatures going into the mid 30s. While it's nice to be able to walk around again without a coat, long underwear and two pairs of socks, having all the snow turn into slush is terrible!

 >:(

😡😠
