The first snowstorm of the year hit on Thursday, and it’s been a mess.
Trees, some of those full of soggy or icy branches, are bending or breaking.
Like this one on 82nd between Columbus and Central Park West, photographed by Jonathan Cristol.
Another on 67th Street almost hit a reporter:
Another fell on 89th. Thanks to Jerry for the photo.
Buses have been sliding around, like the M79 below.

Two buses contributed to a traffic standstill at 120th and Amsterdam, wrote Barbara, who sent in the photo below.
The M86 didn’t look too promising either.
I don't think the M86 can be running–they're all over here on the UWS–a couple more on the other side of Broadway.

On West End Avenue and 98th Street, an 18-wheeler jackknifed, blocking all traffic on the avenue. Robert sent us the photo below.
