Thanks to winter storm Janus, there's 10 - 14 inches of snow on the ground in Brooklyn.

According to the National Weather Service, Brooklyn will experience "widespread blowing snow" and a small chance of more snow after 4 a.m. Wednesday morning.

Expect a high near 14. (Wind chill values as low as -11. Gusts as high as 34 mph.)

3,000 flights were cancelled as of 2:45 a.m.

While the city hopes everyone stays off the roads, they still want kids to go to school . . . Schools Chancellor Carmen FariƱa said on Tuesday evening that city public schools will be open Wednesday.

More than 130 Con Ed customers were experiencing at least partial power outages on Vernon Ave. near Nostraand in Bed-Stuy late Tuesday. Con Edison says it expects it will be fixed by 5 a.m. Wednesday.

And yes, a truck is riding on the sidewalk near Montague Street in the photo above. It had a snow plough attachment in front.
