As you may have heard, it snowed on the East Coast a couple weeks ago. New York City got significantly more snow than it usually does, but we weren’t hit nearly as hard as places upstate and in Massachusetts, and, for that matter, outside Manhattan, where people are still recovering from Hurricane Sandy. I still think there was more snow on the ground after the Great Snow of January 2011 — as only I like to call it — but the way people were talking about this blizzard, it’s as if that one didn’t exist.
We went out on Saturday morning to Central Park to explore the snowfall. There were sledders all over the place. The hill was covered in bright jackets of all colors, on everyone from toddlers to adults. Almost every dog I saw was even wearing a jacket. (There’s nothing quite like feeling outstyled by a canine.)
New York really is beautiful in the snow. I do wish I’d gotten myself up and at ’em a little earlier, if only to avoid the effort of trying to take photos of the snow-covered trees without people wandering right in front of the camera. But, hey, it’s good practice, right?
