Mayor de Blasio has issued a hazardous travel warning for Thursday and Friday:

“Because
of its timing and intensity, this storm is going to make both the morning and
evening rush hours extremely difficult. If you do not need to drive, you will
help yourself and everyone else by staying off the roads. Take mass transit and
leave extra time—it will be slow-going for everyone tomorrow,” said Mayor
Bill de Blasio

Governor Cuomo is urging New Yorkers to take care, and has notified non-essential government employees to seek supervisor approval to stay at home.

“As we continue to prepare for the Nor’easter that is expected to hit parts of New York State tonight and tomorrow, I urge New Yorkers in the affected regions to consider staying home,” Governor Cuomo said. “During the storm, snow is projected to accumulate at a rate of two to three inches per hour, which will make it challenging for plow crews to keep roads clear. Drivers should stay off of the roads if at all possible, and exercise extreme caution if they absolutely must travel. Remember to check on your neighbors and loved ones throughout the storm, monitor local news reports to stay informed and heed the advice of emergency management professionals.”

State offices, facilities, and operations will remain open on February 13, 2014. However, non-essential employees, in light of the expected weather conditions in the Long Island, New York City, Hudson Valley and Capital District regions, may absent themselves from work with charge to appropriate leave credits and supervisory approval.”

    di Blasio braging there has been only 11 snow days since 1978. how many children are injured or killed traveling in a snow storm. There is only ONE REASON the schools are open and thats because of the MONEY from the state. Anyone that sends their kids out in this type of weather are idiots. You are a Progressive ( communist ) alright on a power trip. Not as bad as Bloomberg but give it time
