This is one of mine, take a few years back. It was a huge blizzard here in NYC.

Sorry but the sun doesn't shine during a blizzard. There is a real definition of a blizzard and not every "blizzard" that news calls one is actually a blizzard. Your photos shows a sun reflection and that can't happen during blizzard conditions which essentially is sustained white-out conditions. So not even your photo could have been taken during a blizzard!

This was taken at NIGHT, during the heaviest BLIZZARD of the year in NYC. There is no sun, you are seeing reflections of streetlights.

It's either a blizzard or it isn't, not a "heaviest" blizzard.

A blizzard is a severe snowstorm characterized by strong sustained winds of at least 56 km/h (35 mph) and lasting for a prolonged period of time — typically three hours or more. It's likely you might have just one blizzard a year, if any, in NYC.

Yes, and this was it. You could make a good meteorologist, but first you'll have to recognize the difference between day and night.
