As far as we got commute cancelled
Tag Archives: Commute
Commute was fine.
Time to jam out the emails.
Looks like there may be issues with the commute tomorrow. I doubt it will be bad enough for us to go “snow day” but if it is… Also, Monday is a holiday and I could work, or I could not… so if tomorrow doesn’t work out, I will have to go in Monday, but ideally I will just work both days.. Anyway…
Ice, snow could mean nasty Friday commute
By MARC PARRY, Staff writer
The morning commute is expected to be a mess Friday.
The Capital Region will see a light overnight snowfall change to freezing rain by the morning. There may be a little sleet, too, according to the National Weather Service.
The slippery mixture will change to rain by mid-morning Friday. That’s expected to taper off by mid-afternoon.
Though it won’t be a big storm total snow accumulation 1 to 3 inches meteorologist John Quinlan called its timing a “worst-case scenario.”
“Even a very thin layer of freezing rain can cause problems on the roadways,” he said.

We all knew this mild, snow-free weather wouldn’t last long.
A system moving toward the Northeast will dump three to six inches of snow in the Capital Region, and five to 10 inches in Eastern Rensselaer and Columbia counties by the end of the day tomorrow.
The most troublesome part is that the heaviest snow will be falling during the morning rush hour, sometime between 4 a.m. and 8 a.m., said Hugh Johnson, meteorologist with the National Weather Service in Albany. Johnson said at times, the snow will be accumulating up to an inch an hour.
“It could be a pretty nasty morning rush,” Johnson said.
Snow could start falling around midnight tonight, and then taper off by early afternoon Monday. However, lighter snow could still be plaguing the Capital Region into Monday night.
Temperatures will drop from the milder weather the area has been experiencing. Monday will reach into the high 20s, with lows in the low 20s.
Due to the reality of our new friend: “Mr Foot of Snow” that decided to show up last night and into this morning we’ve decided to skip coming down the mountain for fear of not being able to get back home later tonight..
Hey as long as I have electricity to watch the games tomorrow I like forward to it.. otherwise.. I am not driving in it.
Snow, sleet and high winds expected starting late tonight have caused the National Weather Service to issue a winter storm warning beginning at midnight and ending Monday morning.
“Things are going to deteriorate pretty rapidly later this evening,” National Weather Service meteorologist Joe Villani said Saturday. “It’s going to start snowing right around midnight and it could pick up in intensity very, very quickly after the onset.”
The snow will switch over to sleet and freezing rain Sunday morning, according to Villani, who said between 5-10 inches of snow mixed with ice should cover the ground by the time it’s over Monday morning.
Temperatures are expected to be in the teens and 20s during the storm and winds of up to 30 mph should make the air feel even colder.
Villani said there is one positive way to view this storm: “It shouldn’t affect the morning commute,” he said. “At least it’s occurring on the weekend.”
3 times I almost didn’t get up a hill and had to shimmy my way up side to side in first gear… pictures coming…
(2-6-2009 entry: Just another quick comment here.. over a year later… this was literally the scariest worst drive EVER EVER EVER)
We came so close to just not coming into work today… but we already drove to the parking lot, and we already parked.. And since we already did that part, there was no good reason to not go to work. Gotta get paid.
Anyway.. so I’m just going to mail in the day from here– and stay under the radar today. That’s my plan. Fly low. Below the clouds. Read some Pub 75 action and stay on top of everything I need to keep in my queue and queue up everything for next week.
Happy Hump Day.
It’s rainy. The drive in was fun. We commute together so that’s cool. Today was my turn to drive. We park in the state employee lot and ride the bus in from there.. Ooh the lights just turned on in here. I’m like one of the first ones in, so I get to be one of the first ones that leave. That’s cool. Alright, I’m gonna review some random documentation. Peace out.
That would totally be crappy. No thanks. I know some people that had to walk over 7 miles to work today. Not for me. Of course, I would bike it.. but still. It was COLD today.
Millions of New York commuters are battling their way home in freezing temperatures during a strike by transit workers, which Tuesday afternoon was ruled illegal. Judge Theodore Jones said the union was in contempt of two court injunctions ordering it not to strike, and he ordered that the union be fined $1 million a day beginning Tuesday.
