As we wait for Winter Storm Orlena to arrive and dump 14 to 16 inches of snow in New York City — here’s a flashback to the last time Hell’s Kitchen had that much snow, in January 2016. That was SNOWPOCALYPSE (or in Weather Channel speak, Winter Storm Jonas) — and it dumped over two feet of snow.
Winter Storm Gail (that was the one in December 2020) only brought us 11 inches! We’ve only had more than 20 inches seven times since the city started reporting Central Park snowfall in 1869. So here’s Jonas — at 27 inches. Remember, and prepare…
Please tag W42ST with your photos and videos of this snowstorm. Keep warm and safe.
