You can see that the street is starting to get covered. If you look closely you'll see a couple of kids playing with their dad.
An update from the Post about the storm (which is only just beginning):
With the fall of darkness, the forecast suggested, true blizzard conditions could descend. Often used loosely to describe a heavy snowfall, a true blizzard has sustained winds or gusts above 35 mph, blowing snow that cuts visibility below a quarter of a mile and lasts at least three hours.
The consensus among forecasters was that there would be at least 20 inches by late Saturday, and some thought it might be a record-breaking 30 or more.
