    Snow creates traffic issues in NYC this afternoon..


    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     SimonUES told me, 'I witnessed many people sliding around and dangerous walking conditions. Most of the main traffic arteries are backup up, and many intersections just blocked, moving only a few cars at a time. The grocery stores seem to be increasingly busy, and there are people rushing about, mostly overly panicked I would say, but still conditions are not conducive to travel or easily walking.'
    - hhanks, CNN iReport producer

    Manhattan workers rush to exit the city as the storm descends quickly this afternoon. Second ave seems like a ghost town as 59th Street bridge traffic seems to have been given priority to exit the UES/Midtown area. Honking horns mark the city's "Call of the Wild" as drivers are becoming increasingly impatient with many of the other avenues and street traffic at a complete standstill.
