The "potentially crippling" Storm Juno blew through New York City with a lot more bark than bite, with only 7.8 inches falling in Central Park overnight—a far cry less than the two feet expected. And the worst is over: only 2-4 more inches of snowfall are expected today. Despite many kids and adults being granted a snow day, city life should be pretty normal today. Here's what you need to know:

-The travel ban was lifted at 7:30am.

-Subway service returned at 9am and will be back to Sunday service levels by noon. PATH is running on a weekend schedule. The LIRR will resume most service by noon.

-Metro-North will resume on a Sunday schedule on the Hudson and Harlem lines at about 11am and on the New Haven Line starting at 1pm.

-Bus service will resume at noon with limited service, and New Jersey transit buses will resume at 11am.

-The Staten Island Ferry is open.

-All major bridges are open.

-Eastern Long Island got the brunt of the storm, with two feet of snow falling overnight and an active blizzard still ongoing. The travel ban is still in effect in Suffolk County and most of Connecticut.

-The airports are open but most flights are still canceled. Sorry.

-The libraries, courts, parks, most public services and many museums are closed today.

-Events were/are canceled all over the city. Last night, the Met Opera premiere of Iolanta and Bluebeard Castle, Carnegie Hall events and all Broadway plays went dark. Tonight, most Great White Way shows are set to run as scheduled, except for The Lion King and Aladdin; check broadway.org for details. Tonight's Louis C.K. show at Madison Square Garden is also canceled. Monday's Marilyn Manson concert has been pushed back to Thursday night, and Webster Hall's Monday and Tuesday shows have been postponed. In case you're going stir crazy, Sleep No More IS on tonight, and there are still tickets—plus you get a free glass of bubbly on arrival.
