It was Holiday for New Yorkers.  They were busy enjoying it with family and friends but Mother Nature had other plans

The National Weather Service did not pick up on the dangerous storm approaching

Prediction Changes

~ December 23 - 2 to 4 inches of snow were predicted
~ December 24 2010 - prediction updated to 4 to 6 inches
~ December 25 - expected snow accumulations was upped to 6 to 8, later in the day revised again to 8 -12.  The city administration was on Christmas Holliday vacation and not planning for this blizzard, like the rest of us

The Long Island News Day reported 32 inches in Rahway New Jersey.  Final official total for the 2 day accumulation of December 26 and 27 at La Guardia airport was 14 inches.  Central Park recorded over 20 inches

The unexpected and under predicted storm was a life taker.  Bus, cars, trucks, even mighty garbage trucks were stranded askew in the middle of city blocks.

Emergency vehicles could not pass and people died because of it

Alternate side parking was suspended until the end of January, 2011. City streets did not become fully passible until then
