January 27, 2015 (West Hudson, NJ) Metrologists had predicted two to three feet of snow and Blizzard like conditions for today. The reality is far more reasonable with only 8 to 12 inches of snow and some winds but nothing extraordinary. What happened? The Blizzard of 2015 went slightly east of West Hudson and Manhattan and went up to New England including Boston and dumped the snow there. We will complain about the weather men but smile as we dodged a bullet.

Local metrologist Anthony Mondaro from the Harrison Weather Station had forecasted 12 to 24 inches of snow. Mondaro who has a distain for media hype of snow storms couldn't quite get himself to give a definitive amount of snow and settled for a range. Instinctively Mondaro thought that the storm may not make a direct hit but go to the East of New Jersey. He was right but one would love to have a very precise forecast but only a weatherman can get away at being not so precise and keeping his/her job.

The Public Works Departments in Kearny and Harrison were out early and having prepared for the worse were able to clear the major roadways and side streets quicker than anticipated.
