Snow, some

... the result of the blizzard, on the terrace. It is very pretty.

For New York City it was a damp squib, but eastern Long Island and parts north are seeing real snow accumulation. Ours did not come close to either of our last blizzards, in 2010 and 2006.

Vince walked to work this morning since there were no subways and his day starts very early (5.5 miles in 1 hour 40, he said - Hey. He's Canadian. Whaddayagonnado?). He could not take a cab: There was still a travel curfew.

I know weather is very hard to predict, but it was very silly to ban travel after 11pm, and idiotic to stop the subways in the city that never sleeps.

More snow pictures later, if you can stand it.


  1. Missed it by ... 18 miles :)

  2. If you refer to me as the Canadian in some posts and the Frenchie in others, people are going to think there are two of us, so I thought I'd better explain to the crowds that my dual nationality depends on circumstances and moods. Today, I'm definitely a Canuck. ;-)

  3. Please, more snow pictures. We are snow-starved out here in western Oregon!

    1. Leslie, I'll send you some. It is still coming down (at 2:30 pm) west of Boston where I am. At least two feet of the stuff.

  4. You were lucky to get less than predicted, so rejoice! Maybe curtailing traffic will have allowed the trucks to get in and do a really good cleaning sooner, rather than later. We love the Smoothman, no matter where he comes from ... today.
