Use common sense and stay safe.

I walk close to a mile to go to shul every Shabbos. I also hurt my knee recently, and am nervous about walking in the snow. The only other shul near me is a Chabad house where the members are meshichist, so I refuse to daven there. I might end up davening at home this week.February 8, 2013 8:49 pm at 8:49 pm #928516147Participant
2 further points to consider:-
a) Parshas Shekolim is not Parshas Zochor, so if it becomes necessary to miss Shul:- so be it; Just remember to finish Seudo Shelishis long before nitefall, so that no questions arise about which Birkas haMozon to recite
b) Assume your Eiruv is down.February 8, 2013 8:50 pm at 8:50 pm #928517I can only tryMember
That’s quite a hike.

We had just made a minyan this morning, which was a nes.February 10, 2013 2:22 pm at 2:22 pm #928521lesschumrasParticipant
Ferd, read the paper. Some places had over 30 inches. The further east on Long island the more snow. Brooklyn is part of Long island.February 10, 2013 4:02 pm at 4:02 pm #928522nishtdayngesheftParticipant
But Brooklyn is not Eastern Suffolk where the large accumulations were. Is is several hours drive away. But you knew that. You just were trying to infer that there was 30 inches in Brooklyn and there was nothing if the sort.February 10, 2013 7:37 pm at 7:37 pm #928523lesschumrasParticipant
No, I was just inferring that just because wherever he was there was only a few inches didn’t mean there wasn’t a blizzard. I did say the snow got heavier further east. Assumed people know Brooklyn is the western end of Long islandFebruary 11, 2013 2:13 am at 2:13 am #928524ThePurpleOneMember

for the record, brooklyn is NOT part of li….February 11, 2013 4:04 am at 4:04 am #928526☕ DaasYochid ☕Participant
Brooklyn is part of Long island.
brooklyn is NOT part of li….
Long Island is an island in the U.S. state of New York. Stretching northeast into the Atlantic Ocean, Long Island contains four counties, two of which, (Brooklyn and Queens), are boroughs of New York City, and two of which are mainly suburban (Nassau and Suffolk). In popular usage, “Long Island” often refers only to Nassau and Suffolk counties in order to differentiate them from New York City, although all four counties are on the island and part of the New York metropolitan area.

The Bronx is the only Borough of New York City which is on the Mainland of the USA.
Oh:- to be very accurate:- When crossing over the Broadway Bridge from Manhattan to the Bronx, there is a tiny enclave on the very southern tip just North of the Bridge which is legally also part of Manhattan, so there is also a tiny enclave of Manhattan on the USA Mainland.February 11, 2013 6:37 am at 6:37 am #928528yehudayonaParticipant
The area that 147 refers to is called Marble Hill. It’s part of the Borough of Manhattan and New York County but it’s no longer part of Manhattan Island. You can check out Wikipedia for the origins.
