I woke up this morning and there were large fluffy flakes falling daintily from the sky with tropical storm force winds knocking them sideways...
By 11am that all turned to slush-a steady mix of snow and rain started falling causing the crosswalks all around NYC to become 6 foot long/wide moats. Some crosswalks were deceiving, they look harmless enough until you put you entire foot in and sank to the pavement up past your ankle... I was tempted to purchase either stilts or fisherman's boots or maybe replicate the Ark...
5pm, no snow, no rain but the slush was still lurking there all innocent-like for the unsuspecting pedestrian...
It's now 9pm and not only is it raining (OH PLEASE WASH THE SNOW AWAY) but it also sounds like ice is hitting my dining room window... accompanied by flashes of light and sonic booms. So, to recap, we have had snow, sleet, slush, rain, hail, thunder and lightening and yet life in the boroughs goes on like normal.
I must admit, I was so tempted to go to the gym but two things were holding me back:
1. the crosswalk moats, I have been braving them all day and my only consolation was getting home, 10 minutes later than usual and with wet feet.
2. I know how it feels when you are in a job that deals with clients/costumers and I have been saying to myself, "don't these people have the common sense to stay home?"
The answer to that "YES, yes I do!"
So with that I leave you with 3 pictures from my morning sojourn to work this morning, which incidentally I was stuck underground in the train a few feet from my actual stop for over 15 min...thankfully I had just gotten a seat!
With Love, the future me
