13 Photos (And One Tweet) That Show How Underwhelming NYC's Snow Storm Was

It was supposed to be "very fast and very hard," "worse than we have ever seen before," "potentially historic," and generally terrifying. For the public's safety, New York City shut down schools, parks and public transit. Non-emergency vehicles were banned from the streets after 11 p.m.

Yet while parts of the East Coast were snowed in by massive winter storm Juno early this week, New York City woke up feeling fine -- if a bit hungover. Here's what it was like to live through the Blizzard of 2015: The One We'll Never Talk About Again.

By the time snow began to fall on Monday, everyone was freaking out about #snowmageddon.

Some people got an early start on the snow day fun.

And to think tomorrow would be even better!!!

If, you know, everyone survived the night.

Meanwhile, the streets were strangely calm, almost as if the threat were totally overblown.

But then, when we woke up...

NOTHING HAPPENED. OK, a little snow happened.

Some of us were REALLY, REALLY disappointed.

We're glad, you know, no one got hurt in the storm, but look at his poor little face.

Worst. Snow day. Ever.

Yet, strangely, much of the city remains shut down.

A few glass-half-full-types made the very most of it.

They tried.

They really, really tried.

For others, life continued as usual.

At least you're all set for the next hurricane, New York.
