It was supposed to be the storm of the century and we only got a few inches so this morning’s headlines read “New York dodges a bullet”.
My friend Katy described it in this way: “I’m looking at this now like its a flash mob, only in reverse. The Mayor has sent all the New Yorkers scampering to their lairs and now the city is quieter than it has been in a century or two… world’s biggest flash mob inversion.”
Nonetheless, we got a snow day.
It looks so beautiful in your pictures! That thought came to me at about 3:30 in the morning when it was sooo quiet. Thanks for the compliment of publishing it here.
I love how pristine everything looks after the snow – even our funky gritty NY city. These are wonderful pictures Ileana. I didn’t get out until everything was scraped and tidied. Thanks for the compliment of publishing my 3:30 am perspective!
Hopefullly dearest Katy, you will do me the compliment of guest posting at some time. I love your writing.
I obviously haven’t mastered the medium! I wrote something twice because the first didn’t appear! But there it is now …. : ) i’ll have to think about what I could write about…
A neighborhood story.
Oh, I love the reverse flash mob analogy! Perfect! And I envy you that snow day, even if it was less than anticipated. We’d give anything for a few flakes down here. Your photos are lovely.
That’s a big compliment coming from you. One of my resolutions this year is to improve my photos. I finally learned how to use Snapseed. Next up is to understand how to use a DSLR.
Love the photos, especially that last picture which looks like a 19th century painting. Beautiful!
Thank you Renee!!!
