Bwogger and SoCal resident Nicki Camberg has some questions, namely: what are duck boots? What is she supposed to do when it snows? Is sledding an actual thing? These aren’t rhetorical please help her.
In an attempt to bring pictures that aren’t from Shutterstock or Wikimedia Commons Actual Photography, we sent Features Editor Alexander Pines into the snow to document yesterday’s snow (and to motivate you to up your Snapchat/cover photo/emails to Mom game). The full album is posted on Bwog’s fancy not-really-new-but-we-haven’t-posted-about-it Facebook, but here’s a preview.

To celebrate this atypical natural splendor, Alexandra Svokos urges you to Choose Your Own Adventure: A. You are sitting in bed, noshing on some Strawberry Veronas and […]

In case you weren’t aware, there’s a pretty big rainstorm that’s going to hit the northeast this weekend, just in time for NSOP. Bwog has been mystified by the Weather Channel the past few days (Seriously! 24 hours devoted just to weather! What is this madness) and really, the coming Hurricane Irene is no joke. […]
Snowicane? Cataclyzzard? Nor’Easter II, Electric Boogaloo? Call it whatever you like–just as back-to-back 40-degree days earlier this week led to tantalizing thoughts about warm weather, it looks like we’re gonna get dumped on. Again. The National Weather Service has issued a winter storm warning in effect from 6am Thursday until 6pm Friday. We’re told to […]
It says here that we’re in for a boatload of snow tomorrow–anywhere from 8-12 inches. JTS and Teachers College will be closed tomorrow, but you can chalk that up to their high percentage of commuting students and faculty. As of now, open on its regular schedule tomorrow, and things will have to get downright biblical […]
How much snow will we see this weekend? Well, Bwog’s crack meteorology team has spent most of the day keeping an eye on the multiple forecasts pouring out of the National Weather Service, Accuweather, and Weather Underground computer models, and they report that the predicted amounts of snowfall keep climbing. What was a 1 to […]
