It's another icy and disgusting day in New York City, and luckily for us, our local news team is out there in the streets, covering the important developments that are also being covered by windows.

I'm particularly glad NBC 4 New York was out there today to capture this story. Fifth grader Lucas Heiberger outlined his guaranteed four-step ritual for getting a snow day. It's pretty standard superstitious fare, complete with toilet ice cubes, backwards pajamas, and counting steps. (Seriously, is this kid from a Judy Blume novel? I want to keep him.)
