I'm leaving the Farallon Work Boat Aft Dropcam on for a while. The first flakes just started falling here in NYC. Should be a foot or so by noon tomorrow. https://video.nest.com/live/tEAgkt Verizon WiFi at the marina is poor, so it may go on and off... It will also go off when I switch to the foredeck cam. With two Dropcams I can monitor the snow on the fore & aft decks.

I'd probably end up in the water with the decks etc moving that much

What? I just learned that the ZeroTech HighonePro Drone had dual receivers so one person can control the drone while another person controls the camera. But the big feature is a built in parachute that deploys automatically if drone senses it's in trouble, or the operator can deploy it.

Dennis & I went to The NY Historical Society today. Lots of old steel model trains running on layouts and on tracks overhead. Also on exhibit: Comic Book Superheros of Gotham. Both end later this month: http://www.nyhistory.org/exhibitions/current-exhibitions

Snow is still coming down, but backyard lights seem unconcerned!

I'm guessing your train line runs are suspended indefinitely. Can I get a refund on my ticket?

No NJ Transit trains, and all B'Way shows cancelled. All buses stopped, only emergency vehicles allowed on the roads. Pace of snow just picked up, along with the wind. New forecast is for 2' in NYC.

Nice device... over priced though. Most people already have the chargers they need. My laptop charger is $50. A good USB charger is $15. Difference... an extra plug and a little bulk for a savings of $35. Or a difference of $100 to cut down on a little bulk I already own. I think the price point should be around $65.
