Frigid Friday

A dangerously cold and wintry arctic air mass has been gripping much of the Eastern two-thirds of the USA all day today.

This frigid Friday air mass will set the stage for a wintry mess of snow, sleet, and freezing rain across parts of the Carolinas and the Delmarva Peninsula through Saturday morning, with single digits expected.

The frozen precipitation may result in dangerous travel conditions and scattered power outages.

On The Waterfront

New Yorkers are increasingly using the vastly underutilized waterfront for ferry service as an environmental alternative to automobiles.

NYC Ferry has the largest #USA passenger fleet with a total of 38 vessels, providing between 20–90 minute service on each of the routes, depending on the season. A ferry to St. George, Staten Island, and a stop in Throgs Neck/Ferry Point Park launched in 2021, while a route to Coney Island is planned.

We like to call them the grey days of Winter, but it is still Autumn, when the leaves Fall and the skies have not turned gray  just jet.

By the way, did you know that Gray and Grey are both common spellings of the color between black and white. Gray is more frequent in American English, whereas grey is more common in British English.

The weekend started out with rain near the coast but a wintry mix of rain, sleet, snow, and at times freezing rain, for the interior within our forecast region.

#CityImages would like join All Americans to remember those families throughout the central U.S. who are victims of the 36 tornadoes..

Also, the public safety officers and members of the news media spent the night keeping people informed and updated to stay as safe as possible during a horrific night of extremely severe weather. It is at times like this that the most important purpose of our jobs comes out. We proceed as if limits to our ability don't exist. Dozens killed as tornadoes rip through Kentucky, other U.S. states

New York City residents are expecting some flurries during the morning commute, but the first snowfall of the season will be very light.

A “Winter Operations Advisory” was reportedly issued, allowing NYC to fill and deploy salt spreaders, according to the city’s Department of Sanitation.

GLOBAL COPOUT

200 countries copout at COP26 by agreeing to 'Phase Down' rather than 'Phase Out' coal power, bowing to China and India.

India wanted the revision to the language on coal to reflect the 'national circumstances of emerging economies. China, which uses coal-fired power plants to fuel its explosive economic growth, consumes half the world's coal, while India is in second place accounting for 11 percent of global coal use.

The ancient proverb “see no evilhear no evilspeak no evil” was popularized in the 17th century as a pictorial Shinto maxim, carved in the famous Tōshō-gū Shinto shrine in Nikkō, Japan.

Three Wise Monkeys illustrated the idea of protecting oneself self from unsavory or challenging behavior, thought, or language.
