It's November 13, which means we're still experiencing Fall. As in, Snow Fall. Freezing Rain Free Fall. Fall To Your Knees. Winter is a tyrant who doesn't care what season it is, so long as your broken bodega umbrella buckles under a surprise.
How serious is tonight's 90% chance of rain "with some snow mixing in overnight?" The Sanitation Department has issued a "snow alert."
