So who comes up with these names?

Polar Vortex. Cyclone bomb.
In CLE we just call it Tuesday.

Enjoy your Tuesday (on Thursday).
I've been waiting over 5 years with bated breath for someone to say that!

I don't know if it's just the wind or also the type of snow, but I have areas that are twice as high as what's fallen overall, but also parts of my lawn where I can see grass.
+1

Though not so much grass, but concrete sidewalk visible some places, while other are covered with more than a foot of snow. Same goes for cars (interestingly, could be different sides of the street of what's witnessed on sidewalks) where some are totally covered, and some have almost no snow on them at all (like my car right now).

My grass might have a foot of snow on it, but the kids are in school, the sidewalks are plowed by the city, my driveway is plowed, and the streets don't have a speck of snow on them thanks to nonstop plowing/salting and a parking ban which is just fine as everyone has an attached garage. Life continues as normal.

I forgot you get your driveway plowed. But in this case the drifts are keeping the cars clean  ;D
If it's not free shipping it's not worth it.

Do you have a will in place? Or are you relying on the one your state legislator created for you in its intestacy laws?

I love how a travel blogger (no offense) who knows nothing about meteorology is comparing a historic nor'easter that is anatomically stronger than many hurricanes to the clippers you get in Beachwood (though bH moving quickly and only brushing our area). Buffalo knows how to handle heavy snow. Beachwood doesn't.

Any good # to reach AA?  Also going in person to counter, but any good tel numbers. I cant wait over 2 hrs for the call back .
1.800.446.7834 goes straight through.
I actually went to the airport here to see what I could do, but the agent was seriously not interested in speaking to anyone other than the passenger. we ended up schmoozing, but he was a jerk about giving me any pax information, even though I had the confirmation# and paid for the tix (with avios). He probably would have helped if I got the pax on the phone, but at that point, I saw that things were looking poorly.

Ended up driving.

I've been through 3 foot snow storms in Beachwood and in Brooklyn.
Beachwood doesn't leave a snowflake unpunished, CLE remains open, etc. as they're prepared and equipped for it.
NYC shuts down for a week and breaks down into hysterics as all flights and transportation closes.
Don't need a BS in meteorology to know that.

But try finding a minyan for Shachris at 3pm, or Maariv at 3am...
