I received my marching orders on Sunday -- cover the blizzard by covering myself. I was assigned the task of filing reports as I traveled from my apartment, in the Park Slope section of Brooklyn, to the Fox News Corner of the World.
Typically, my morning commute is about 20 minutes. Today -- it would take nearly four hours.

After the initial jolt of blinding snow and gale-force winds, I started climbing over a snow drift -- beginning my four-hour, 9-mile journey to the Fox News Corner of the World.
Fourth Avenue in Brooklyn was a parking lot. Dozens of cars were caught in the blizzard. Those inside were forced to hunker down for eight hours -- riding out the blizzard in their vehicles.

I arrived at Fox News Radio just after the 8 a.m. newscast -- and immediately embraced a warm cup of coffee -- and dry socks.
It was, in fact, an epic day.
