Blizzard of 2010: Forecasts were fuzzy, buses were bungled, plows were pathetic & mayor was missing

So?  Bloomberg is an idiot, then.  Why aren't the libtards across this land not wondering why Bloomberg was AWOL and they whined that Gov Christie was AWOL?  Why didn't they whine when Obama vanished out to Hawaii and is staying more days out there when the entire Nation is either drowning or freezing to death?  What's up with the American Libtard?

An aerial view of Manhattan following the Christmas Blizzard of 2010. It was a perfect storm - and a horribly flawed response.

The winter's first snowfall arrived the day after Christmas, an unexpectedly fierce blizzard that dumped 20 inches of snow on a woefully unprepared city.

For the next three days, everything that could go wrong did go wrong.

Sanitation officials, charged with clearing streets, were short-staffed due to Christmas and stuck with virgin drivers overwhelmed by the driving snow.

Transit officials failed to keep train tracks cleared, while buses were sent into snow-choked streets - where hundreds became stuck, adding to the chaos.

Police, firefighters and ambulance crews were blocked from rescuing people trapped in their homes for hours on end.

The result: a paralyzed, angry city where Bloomberg administration officials were finally forced to admit the city fell down on the job.

Here's how it happened.


In the first hours of Christmas Day, the blizzard that pounded the city with 20 paralyzing inches of snow was a blip on the radar.

The National Weather Service was tracking a storm that might blanket the area with 6 inches of snow - or blow harmlessly out to sea.

"There was a lot of uncertainty," said weather service meteorologist Lauren Nash. "There were two paths - and basically, one would clobber us."

By 4 a.m., the weather service issued a winter storm watch - the first sign a bigger storm was on its way.

"That was a new wrinkle, obviously," recalled city Office of Emergency Management Commissioner Joseph Bruno.

By 4 p.m., there was a blizzard warning. As Bruno recalls, the weather service said there was a 60% chance the city would get 9 to 14 inches of snow.

Once the forecast was upgraded, city agency commissioners and their deputies joined an OEM conference call with the forecasters. Mayor Bloomberg did not participate and officials refused to say if he was in town. They said he was in "regular contact" with city officials over the weekend, a spokesman said.

Despite the more-menacing forecast, administration officials decided not to declare a citywide snow emergency.

That meant people were allowed to leave their cars parked on major streets.

The Sanitation Department began calling in extra workers for Sunday around 8 a.m. - but a supervisor said it became clear there was a staffing problem.

"They were so unprepared for this storm," the supervisor said. "They were scrambling like crazy on Christmas Day, calling people and trying to get them to come in."

Global Warming did it.
