Did you get your gallons of milk and assorted food products you would never eat on an average weather day? Did you get the whiskey? Get the whiskey! If you're wondering how long you have before you can complete all of these errands without wearing snowshoes, On Twitter, the City of new York just alerted its huddled followers that the Blizzard (a ferocious nor'easter named Nemo) Warning goes into effect at 6 a.m. tomorrow (Friday) morning, and will last through Saturday afternoon (the warning is scheduled to be lifted around 1 p.m. that day). Currently weather experts are predicting 10 to 14-inches (not 30") by the time this thing blows over.

And you can expect the city's snow warriors to be on the streets as the first flake falls—the Department of Sanitation says they're "ready for #Nemo: we have 250,000+ tons of salt on hand, 350 salt spreaders & plows ready to be put on 1,800 Sanitation trucks."
