Woke Up This Morning . . .

. . . And this is what I found outside my bedroom window.

Looks like we *finally* got the blizzard I just knew New York was capable of getting. I've been waiting all winter for this! Up until this point, we've only gotten pitiful, pathetic little snow/rain mixers, with more of the latter and less of the former. But finally the winds prevailed in *my* favor for once, and we got a nice 5 inches of snow just overnight alone. Fortunately for me, the biggest part of the storm is not yet done with us, and we can expect about an additional 5 or 6 inches when all is said and done by late afternoon. I would love about twice as much snow as that, but with the anemic winter we've had -- beggars can't be choosers, you know?

I, of course, got up and went in to work. But seems like almost no one else did. The subways were deserted!!! And downtown Manhattan was eerily quiet as well. Not like the ending of the movie Devil's Advocate empty, but still creepy nonetheless.

I'll see if I can remember to take a picture on my way home through the park. I'll probably be moving too quickly to take more than a blur with my iPhone. :)

I think I got your snow storms this year. We had the most snow that Portland has seen in over 50 years.

It was beautiful but we were snowed in for one entire week-luckily it was around Christmas.

As long as you had all your family together in one place -- and plenty of hot cocoa -- I'm sure that must have been fun!

I wish we could have a white Xmas. We've had a slushy Xmas a few times, but the last time it snowed here on that day . . . I was still in high school.

So-blah! I still consider you more fortunate than we are with the snow. :)

Yeah, I always like a good snow. I'm buggin' out that they declared a snow day and closed the schools though. When we were young it would have taken a lot more snow to shut down school. This is a money thing I'm sure.

You're right. I remember us having to go to school even though all the teachers stayed home and we just had to hang out in the auditorium all day. They never called a snow day back then, and yeah we got way more snow than this.
