A foot and a half. Fierce winds, though. A sidewalk would get cleared only to have it covered over again in half an hour.

In Brooklyn, we only had about 5 inches. But fierce winds, too. New York City and Philadelphia got much less snow than expected. But other places were pummeled. In New York State, the worst-hit was upstate Broome County, which includes Binghamton. They got 30-35 inches. There was a total travel ban in that county on Tuesday.

We got burried, seriously. Halfway up the windshield of the two cars. Took all day to dig them out.

I've only seen four of his films, or let me say, films he either directed or acted in.  The Lady from Shanhgai,  The Third Man, The Stranger, and Citizen Kane.  I wanna say, " I don't get all the hype with Orson Welles."  I'm not because I'm pretty sure there are some technical things about him i don't understand.  Let me just say that if you are not technically savvy with filmmaking, Orson Welles films come across as average films. I have yet to see a film he has been involved in that had a plot that really made sense.  The Lady from Shanghai might be the lone exception.

Alfred Hitchcock on the other hand, can take a film, and a screenplay, and keep you in suspense with a film that makes sense.  Welles films come across as very narcissistic.  I'm i watching a movie, or I do i have the privilege to watch his movie? There is a tone or air about Welles pictures that don't have any substance. Its all superficial.  The films may BE technically savvy, but that doesn't make them great movies. I can take ONE Hitchcock film, Vertigo for instance, and there is NOTHING I've seen or heard about that Welles has made that can touch Vertigo.

I have been advised to watch some commentary of Welles films to become abreast of the more technical aspects of his movies, so I am gonna do that and give some updated comments about Welles after i have done that...

The Third Man, which is not a film he directed, does not make sense? And does not have a compelling story and compelling characters?
