We finally got a decent snow!!! I moved to New York in 2002 and it was a fabulous year for blizzards. Somehow I was also lucky enough not to be trying to travel during the snow knockouts.
But since then? nothing worth even talking about. So, finally, last night, after lots of build up and anticipation, we had, a REAL STORM.
My husband and I even went out at midnight to see if it would be the kind of snow that would stick around 'til morning. Sure enough, today was gorgeous. Everyone was out in the park, sledding, marvelling at the good timing. When the streets are snowy and things slow down, New York is like a small town. People are friendlier, the pace is different. Nothing seems quite so pressing.
I love the afternoon light, and the crazy trees. This one really took on a whole character, "go that way, it said."
this kid reminded me of those days, when even though you couldn't feel your toes, you just had to take one more run down the reservoir hill.
the snow loving dogs were well represented.
the central park reservoir was gorgeous...
the sun even made a christmas star in this shot.
come on Dad, one more??
