Having lived in New York for over thirty years, I don’t think I’ve ever seen so much snow as I have this year, except for maybe the blizzard of 1995. So far we have had four major snow storms hit New York City this year. I would never own a car in New York just for the snow alone, because if it’s parked on the street, you are guaranteed, your car will be covered and you will have to dig it out. It started snowing the day after Christmas and in one month we’ve been hit with over 30 inches of snow. That’s a lot of snow, especially when it doesn’t melt in between. Snow doesn’t stop New Yorkers though — I saw baby carriages being pushed through slush and mounds of snow today without the mothers giving it a thought. I ventured out today to get some shots of the latest snowfall. It’s beautiful when it first falls, but very shortly afterwards, it will get dirty, slushy and right down ugly. You pray for rain and a warm day to wash it all away or perhaps another snowfall to cover it all up. I hope you enjoy the pictures.
