For comparison, below was the scenery 2 years ago. We would like to think we learn from our mistake no? 🙂 . back then, i ignored all warnings and left work after all had shut down and wind blowing in full force.. the 20min normally leisurely walk home turned into a 1-hr fight with many fingers frozen plus inability to see due to high wind + flying snow .. now goggles are in full force, quite a pleasant walk. The thing to do is to stop flopping in knee-high snow and just go in middle of the road where there’s no car.. one of my dreams is still to ski down Massachusetts Ave one day..

    I so envy you! We have absolutely no snow and haven’t had any last year either. Two years ago we had 1 (one) snow day (a good one, but still: one; took me two hours to get to work, saw buses and scooters slide and spin).

    Can you snowboard down Mass Ave.? It would rock! I went sledding in Fort Greene Park when I lived in Brooklyn. I also ran across the Brooklyn Bridge in pristine hip-high snow back in ~ 1998. Good times!

      more photos . the wind picked up, i froze again took 1hr to walk home :D, indeed we never quite learn. 2 years ago i saw plenty of kids outside w/ snowboards. problem is once the big snow-plowers arrive you can’t wander off jumping anymore.. but i think if i had taken smaller streets there should be plenty sliding + jumping 🙂
      (the poor people in New York got 5cm of snow or something 😀 )

        Awesome! nice goggles. I have a balaclava but I didn’t even need it this year. What kind of winter is that?!

        I saw Iolantha was cancelled last night at the Met on account of those 5cm of snow.

          ja i read people were complaining about the shutting down.. meanwhile, it’s coming down again here, at near horizontal, woooo hoooo

        • stray says:

          Downstate NY got *plenty* more than 5cm (more like 25 in Manhattan and upwards of 50 out on Long Island, so there was some justification for shutdown, if less than they thought). It was us upriver people who got robbed, although in the end we’ll have had about 10.

          • dehggial says:

            25 is reasonable. Here trains get cancelled after a bit of rain…

            oh i was rounding down to over-dramatize it 😉 . As i work with computer modeling of course i’m fully aware also of the uncertainties that comes with it.. if any complaints should be dislodged it should be more related to loss in business instead of all those demanding their snowmegedon..
            meanwhile, it’s *really* coming down here!

      here you go, more snow. i love excuses to imbed vivaldi 😉

        lovely! We have had rather cold weather, if no snow. In fact Saturday I had to visit one of the armpits of London and pick up a parcel looking like I was scoring drugs and It turned out I had severely underestimated the temperature. But still no snow. Or even frost, just lots of windchill. Wish we had that kind of thing (and Vivaldi. Speaking of which, they do play Vivaldi quite often at my tube stop. Occasionally even Wagner 😀 I’m waiting for some Handel bravura arias).
