We’re still scrambling to put together our “Stormtacker 2010” team coverage this morning, but for now, here’s what we’re hearing from our reporters in the field (and, unlike others, we’re not taking a snow day):

Andy Campbell, Bushwick: “There’s so much snow on the Newtown Creek that — er, wait a second, that’s not snow, that’s petrochemi­cals.”

Snowfall accumulation as of 11 pm: 13 inches.

Aaron Short, South Williamsburg: “It’s snowing so heavily that I can’t see how long the line is at Luger’s.”

Snowfall accumulation as of 11 pm: 13 inches.

Gersh Kuntzman, Park Slope: “I may not have made Louise Crawford’s ‘Park Slope 100,’ but I did shovel out my next door neighbor.”

Snowfall accumulation as of 11 pm: 13 inches.

"like others, we’re not taking a snow day"

Wow. You can't even get your barbs against Teh Blogz right. It should be "UNlike others" Einstein. "LIKE others" makes it a compliment. Call it your "make like a tree and get outta here" moment.

NYC should take every car caught breaking any traffic law until NYC is finally car free. Start with all the abandoned cars everywhere tonight.

Moshe aron Kestenbaum from Williamsburg ODA says:
Mayor Lonnyberg. Not a snowplow to be seen, your a failure , you botched this one up big time. Where are the private contractors ? You said you will hire private snowplows to help out with the cleaning efforts. People do need to get to work tommorow. We are not billioners like you

Cyclist's never needed bike lanes till transplanted hipster babies started showing up from Hayseed, USA!
They can't cross the street without specially painted lines and signs to tell them what to do!

And now the transit rules have changed - Now you can take your bike on the subway at all times.

Oohhh, I'm too tired to pedal, lets get on the M train at rush hour with our bikes.!
