snowpocalypse


this is one of my favorite snow photos
i took it
in
 riverside park
while the snow was still falling

if i am not mistaken
(as if)
it was taken during
 the insane two day snow fall 
january 6-8, 1996

20+ inches of snow 
fell
on nyc

not 
the worst storm in nyc history
no
the worst was 1947
i was born in february 1948
mom used to say
 there was snow on the ground 
when she went into hospital 
and 
snow was still there when she went home with me
of course
 back then 
you didnt have
 a baby 
one day and go home the next

i am posting this in honor of this weekend's predicted
snowpocalypse

lets see if it can out snow '47

  2. Beautiful, but I hope the impending snowpocalypse turns into a icing sugar dusting.

  4. The news this morning said you missed the record by 1/10 of an inch?????
    Hope you are safe and warm. We got none of it, which is what was expected, but right now, it is 10 below 0 here. Ugh!
    xo.
