First Snow of the Winter

Sunday, December 20, 2009

We had a blizzard in New York last night. I don’t think I’ve really experienced a “blizzard” before because I’ve never seen weather like this. Dense snow. 30-40mph winds whipping around. Around midnight I put on my winter jacket, gloves, and hat and went out to walk around in it a bit. Failure. Too windy — ice shards blowing into my face. Cars stuck in the road on snow banks. Drunk people slipping around. I lasted about five minutes before I came back in. Wow. Anyway, things are much nicer today.
