The Tuesday morning quarterbacks gave Mayor de Blasio and Governor Cuomo a raft of shit for shutting the city in response to the epic blizzard the wasn’t. It was supposed to have been the most catastrophic snow accumulation the city has seen in recent recorded history. In the end, we got up to seven inches, depending on the neighborhood.
The so-called blizzard bust leaves the storm of 2006 as the biggest in NYC history. It dumped 26.9 inches on Central Park over a 16-hour period.
