18 Inches of Snow in Brooklyn! Only G Train and 7 Line Without Delays

Snow drifts up to four feet and, according to the NY Times, 18 inches of snow so far in Brooklyn. Here's a round up:

- All New York City area airports are closed; check back this afternoon.

- Oddly enough, Amtrak Northeast Corridor service between New York and Boston will resume on a limited schedule this morning. Other destinations continue to experience delays. See Amtrak for more.The LIRR has suspended all service until further notice. (In some areas cars are stuck in the snow on the tracks.)

- Officials urge travelers to stay off the roads. Cars are trapped all over the place; the Wall Street Journal reports that a tractor trailer and at least two cars were abandoned on the westbound Brooklyn Queens Expressway near Hamilton Avenue.

- Subways: Ironically, only the G train and the 7 line are running without delays. Buses: about half are running. See MTA before riding.

- Commenters at the NY Times say passengers are trapped at local airports, passengers have been trapped on subways and the PATH.
