CNN PRODUCER NOTE Fourteen-year-old Monisha Sihana is home today because the schools in her area were closed due to the nor'easter that hit New York City. She ventured outside to look at her block in Queens this morning to see how the streets were faring. She says everything was covered in several inches of snow. 'It's just crazy, so much snow outside. It is hard to clean and it is hard to get cars out,' she said, explaining how her parents tried to move their car, but there was too much snow underneath it for the vehicle to budge. Her parents are also home from work today because of the weather. 'No one wants to go to school today because of the snow, but it's not fun to do nothing all day,' she said. 'I'm not planning on playing in the snow. It's way too cold for that.'
