White Winter- January 2011 Sets Record NY Snow Totals

January marks the snowiest month in NYC.  Central Park in NYC received 19 inches of snow, the most of all NY counties.  This month, Central Park broke its 1925 record of 27.7 inches, with 36 inches of snowfall. 

As a result of the storm, all NYC schools were closed Thursday and Regents exams were postponed until June.  Also, all non-emergency government offices were closed, flights cancelled and many forms of transit were either suspended or operated on reduced service.  Many residents of NYC, Brooklyn, Long Island, Orange and Rockland counties suffered power outages after the storm.

The safest thing to do was to stay home until the salt spreaders and snowplows cleared your street.
