Blizzard 2016 is now over and left New York City and Jersey City, New Jersey buried in over 2 feet of snow, nearly smashing a record.  Jersey Joe took his camera out for a live show in the heart of the blizzard and brings you the highlights in this special episode of his video blog web show.

The blizzard left New York City with 26.8 inches of snow, just 0.1 inch shy of the all time record that was set in February 2006.  A travel ban went into effect and all above ground subway and train service was halted at 2pm Saturday, ahead of the heart of the storm.  Mass transit is set to resume full service on Monday, January 25th, while airports have already reopened earlier in the day on Sunday.

Always use your head when a storm approaches.  Stock up with the appropriate supplies you need, sit at home, and wait it out.  Only venture out if the conditions are safe.  While I had scaffolding and large buildings to shield under, when the snow starts whipping — those ice pellets really hurt!

Power failure — no lights, no nothing, no fun?  Jersey Joe has an incredible idea that will keep your family and friends entertained for hours!

THE 411

What: power failure

Reaction: Jersey Joe offers these tips for family fun


These are my immediate suggestions.  I grew up in the country.  In a big winter snowstorm or a summer thunderstorm, it was no uncommon for the power to go out.  My grandparents taught me that it was up to you to make it either a pleasant or horrible experience.  They simply planned ahead and were always ready.

Our family always had a back up heating source (both coal furnace or Kerosene heater), plenty of canned goods in the basement, and lights operated by batteries or kerosene.

Bottom line — it’s up to you to take a few seconds and plan for the worst.  Because, unfortunately, it will happen.
