" February Fury " in the East Coast

This is the biggest storm that hit the North East in a very long time. People call it February Fury. I flew in on Tuesday at Stewart International Airport here in Newburgh, Ny on a business trip and got caught in the middle of it all. It started snowing heavily on Thursday at 7am and it didn't stop until Friday morning. All the flights coming out of Stewart International was canceled for the remainder of the day. If there's no planes coming in, there's definitely no planes coming out. I received word this morning from Hampton Inn front desk, The hotel I'm staying that a major part of the city have no power, this includes the airport. I'm might be stuck here until Sunday. All in all total snow fall is between 18-22 inches. Snow is waist deep in some areas of the city. It's almost 7pm now and it's starting to snow again. Snow is expected to fall another 6-8 inches on top of the 22 inches already received the night before. I just hope that I get home soon.
