A powerful northeaster pushing through the New York area has blanketed the region with a thick layer of snow that is more than seven inches deep in some places.
As of Wednesday evening, parts of Westchester County had received five to seven inches of snow, the National Weather Service said in a statement. The service said that close to three inches had fallen in Central Park in New York City.
Strong winds have also lashed the region, knocking down power lines and cutting electricity to areas where it had only recently been restored in the wake of Hurricane Sandy. The weather service clocked gusts of 40 to 50 miles an hour in coastal regions of New York City and Long Island.
Channeling or acting out the 3rd debate, a gorilla escaped his cage but was led calmly back to his cage, but not before eating 5 gallons of black currant kvash making Trump kvetch. It's over, folks, you can all go safely back home/inside.
Nor, crucially, are the Trumpniks a majority. Polls give every indication that Hillary Clinton is going to beat Trump, just as she beat Bernie Sanders — who also drew larger rally crowds and more think pieces than she did — in the Democratic primary. Clinton crowds aren’t as big, and her voters aren’t as loud or as interesting to the media. But there sure are a lot of them. And it’s about time we acknowledge them and their emergence as a new silent majority that reelected America’s first black president and is poised to elect its first woman.
I don't know if the Wikileaks leaks are good or bad - if Hillary had said she opposed TPP on Investor State Dispute Settlement and because of weaknesses in the Korean trade deal, either we wouldn't have believed her or would have just ignored it. How do we know? Because she did say that & that's how the public and media responded.
It's a pain to have the Wikileaks emails dripping out now, but overall it's largely like Manning's leaks - more good + inconvenience than actual harm. I still don't think it's fair for 1 side in an election to be outed piece by piece including their internal strategy and normal debates. But it's turning into a good free campaign advertisement. Even millennials seem to have taken notice. More cowbell.
