The forecast for New York is 6-10 inches of very wet snow according to the CH 3 Weatherman.  This is the earliest snow in New York since the Civil War, according to Drudge. Here is the Weather Channel View:

Since the leves are still on the on the trees authorities are expecting wide spread power outages through out the region. This should force the all but the real hard core out of the OWC encampment. Stay Tuned.

Update (10-29-11, 14:45)  Now up to 10 inches now expected in New York City:

    The big October snow missed us on the SE side of Baltimore, just a cold rain event. Northwest of town is another story.
