MUST SEE: Wild Pictures and Video from Massive Northeastern Snow Storm

And it’s not over yet!

It’s Groundhog’s Day today, and we all know what that means:  We’re going to be beholden to the superstitions of a strange critter from Pennsylvania whose handlers claim that he can predict the future.

Well, in all actuality, it’s more like cutting open a persimmon to see what sort of winter we’re going to have than it is a simple superstition, but that’s beyond the point.  All we know right now is that Punxsutawney Phil says that there are going to be six more weeks of winter.

Folks in the northeast aren’t going to want to hear that, however, after getting completely battered by a massive winter storm this week.

The worst of the sprawling winter storm that dumped heavy snow on New York City on Monday continued its slog into New England on Tuesday, promising more weather misery for residents there.

Tuesday, New Yorkers were digging out from under piles of snow that shut down public transport, canceled flights and closed coronavirus vaccination sites. It was the city’s biggest snowstorm in five years, since the historic blizzard of 2016.

New York City’s Central Park had a storm total of 17.2 inches late Sunday through early Tuesday, weather.com reported. That makes it the 16th-biggest snowstorm on record there dating back to 1869.

“I don’t think we were prepared for it really,” Ricky McDonald, who was shoveling his SUV out of a snowdrift in Brooklyn on Tuesday morning, told the New York Daily News. “I don’t think everyone was aware of how strong it was going to be. But I like it!”

The aftermath of the storm made for some captivating images being shared on social media.

And, just as much of the northeast will be getting dug out from the massive snowstorm, another winter weather event is set to take shape later this week.
