Heavy snowfall is anticipated around most of Eastern New Jersey and Pennsylvania, and the area is expected to recieve 12 - 20 inches of snow today (14 March). The New York City Department of Sanitation has issued a "Snow Alert" that began at 11 p.m. yesterday (13 March) in advance of the storm. Due to the inclement weather, the two big auction houses has decided to close their preview sessions for a day and postpone the sales.
