It was supposed to snow a lot in New York. It only snowed some. New Yorkers don't like it when the thing that happens to them isn't the biggest, most important thing that ever happened to anyone ever. We can barely even stomach the fact that states in New England are still getting pummeled, that the blizzard warning is still in effect in Boston. Boston.
But like most humans, we're mostly just pissed that we thought we had a day off from life today, and that day off was rescinded.
"We're stronger than the storm, No really, like a lot stronger It wasn't all that bad, Let's get a bagel or something, I dunno."

Do you think media and politicians wanted a few more inches of snowfall, just for credibility?

Can we call the next NYC downpour a monsoon and take the day off then too?

New Yorkers: "I was promised my shattered bones would be at the bottom of a snow-packed impact crater by now thanks for nothing de Blasio"

can't wait to ignore a major storm warning next year based on this and then lose power for over a week

This storm was historic in the same way the Knicks' season has ben historic. We'll all be happier when it's behind us.

News says the snow is 5.5 inches, but they're probably measuring from the base to make it sound bigger.

Boy, I bet those New Yorkers who took the weatherman's advice to preemptively turn to cannibalism sure feel foolish now.

Perhaps New York was overcautious in shutting down last night but it stopped a Knicks game from happening so it was all worth it.
