Record cold Veterans Day in New York City

And the day before.

“Let’s not forget about good old NYC which set record lows on Friday night, 11/10 and then again early on Saturday morning, 11/11,” says reader Leon Tesla.

“Friday night’s 25 beat a record set, I believe, in 1914 and Saturday’s 24 broke one set in 1933.”

“Take that, Boston!!”

Leon’s remarks are confirmed here:

“Record-low temperatures made it tough for the scores of people who showed up at Madison Square Park, where the city’s Veterans Day ceremony and parade kicked off Saturday afternoon.”

  1. It won’t take much to shut down a city like New York.

    Snow for 1 week. Then another. Then another.

    How are they going to survive? Get to work? Get trucks to the stores? Have they thought of that?

    Where do you “snow plow snow” when there is no place to plow it since it is 6 feet high already? How do you plow snow when it falls faster than a city can plow it?

    Have they thought of this?

    • If you have the right equipment you can use snowblowers to load the snow right into dump trucks. It’s doubtful that NYC has many of them, if any at all.

  2. “This year’s grand marshal was astronaut Buzz Aldrin, himself a veteran of the Korean War. The 87-year-old is a Montclair, New Jersey native.
    As grand marshal, he cruised in a convertible with a driver. As an astronaut, it was Apollo 11 he piloted to become the second man on the moon. He was honored Saturday for the many other missions he flew in the U.S. Air Force,”
    Buzz Aldrin quote:
    “I think the climate has been changing for billions of years. If it’s warming now, it may cool off later. I’m not in favor of just taking short-term isolated situations and depleting our resources to keep our climate just the way it is today. I’m not necessarily of the school that we are causing it all, I think the world is causing it.”
    Well said Buzz.

  3. It doesn’t take much snow to bankrupt the city. You can have a small city very far north Nome AK. However can these giant cities stay solvent with even a moderate increase in snowfall. I believe Boston had to borrow money a couple of years back for extra snow removal.

  4. Doesn’t look like the hot air coming out of Al Gore’s mouth is doing NYC any good! Plus NYC is not under 3 feet of saltwater either.
    But they’re trying to convince you every year that it’s hotter than the Jurassic!
    It’s not working too well ha!
