Up until Friday night, I thought it was all media hype. Last year they kept saying we were going to get hit with blizzards and we’d wake up to 5 inches. 5 inches of snow is nothing. When I looked out my window and saw how much snow stuck and accumulated – I was so excited. This year the weather people got it right!
Central Park received 26.8 inches of snow. I’m pretty sure Brooklyn got more. We were wading in the snow yesterday. It was fun.
I feel bad for all my neighbors who live in houses. Not only are they digging out paths for pedestrians to walk, they are digging out their cars and the street. Only the main roads were plowed. Some cars can’t make it down certain streets. I’ve always lived in an apartment building so we don’t have the stresses of home owning.
It amazes me how fast the city comes back to life after a shutdown but we are the city that never sleeps. Slowly but surely things are getting back to normal.
These are pics from my mom, the morning after the storm. She walked from through Chinatown and Little Italy in Manhattan to check on my grandma’s place. We’ve been slowly cleaning up the estate and we left the windows open so during the storm she kept worrying it was getting wet in the apartment. It was fine.
I miss Manhattan, always will. Snow gets cleared up faster than Brooklyn and they usually get slightly less. In Manhattan people shovel the sidewalks more not diligent in Bay Ridge. What baffles me are doctor’s office. They are the worse by me. They don’t shovel and always have the iciest sidewalks.
I like it during snowstorms, that’s the fun part. Hate the after affects – it’s going to be slippery and wet for a while. Hopefully it won’t be too cold so it will melt and not turn to ice.
Yay, I got my snowstorm! So scared winter was going to end and I wouldn’t be able to roll in the snow.
Happy playing in the snow and be careful cleaning up.
