Winter Storm Jonas: The storm to end all storms

As of 7 p.m. Eastern Standard Time, New York’s Central Park, measured 25.1 inches of snow. It’s already the third highest accumulated snowstorm on record. After a week of wondering whether or not we will get such a blockbuster storm, well…

With over 84 million people in its cross-hairs, Winter Storm Jonas, will at the very least will go down in memory as one of the biggest snowstorm to hit the Eastern Seaboard. I will remember it as the storm I took pictures. So here is my collection of great shots. In short I was Ray in the video.

When in doubt, take the local, which is what most subway lines were today. It was also a way to get around and stay warm.

Times Square looks brighter when the weather isolates her from the city. More so than when under normal circumstances.

Yup that’s me in a misguided attempt to be Mary Tyler Moore. No article of clothing was harming in the making of this picture.
