1/23/16 New York Blizzard

For purists, “blizzard” may or may not be an exaggeration—probably not—but we got lots of snow (finally!), after a warm, dry winter. By midnight Saturday, we had about two feet, and with the 20+-mile-an-hour winds, the drifts must have been impressive south of here.

The snowplows traveled in fleets to keep the streets clear, so, by 4:30 (when I took these pictures) it wasn’t as much fun for the pedestrians. (You can actually see 4 of them behind a snow angel-maker, 3rd row from the bottom, 3rd photo from left.) But we managed to make lots of snow angels and have many snowball fights in spite of the plows’ bad attitude.

One twenty-something had a set of giant (sort of) red plastic salad tongs, only there were half scoop-cups at the ends of these. He made perfect snowballs with them—but for every one he made, we had pelted him with four more. Technology isn’t all it’s cracked up to be!
