- The city that never sleeps, fell silent last night as a travel ban came into force at 11pm.
- In New York city, the mayor closed the subway system and vehicles were banned from the roads in 13 counties with fines of $300 dollars imposed on those who dared to set out.
- Around 6,500 flights were cancelled, with most not expected to be rescheduled until Wednesday. Train routes were also cancelled.
- By 1:30am though, some forecasters had downgraded the predicted levels from 3 feet to 1 foot although they still said that levels in Boston could still reach two feet.
Britain is also on alert for cold weather but the predictions there are only for a few inches of snow to fall.
In the meantime, I am looking out of my window at a beautiful sunny morning here in Bigastro!
