Yes, it was wicked. The difference between this storm and the "big" one last year was the weight of the snow. There was less moisture this time, more powdery snow, so no power outages (as far as I know), therefore there was no need for a warming center.

Steve  Will there be a warming station set up at Thompkins Hose as there was during th ice storm/blackout last year?
