Our area was buried in 24 inches of snow on the first blizzard of the season. I sound as if I’m expecting a second, a third and so on, and you bet, I think I’m expecting it, as this opening salvo was kind of intense. It can be a prelude to a real bad winter season. It’s the first time in the almost twelve years of my life here in New York that the city came to a standstill because of a snow storm/blizzard.
So, what now two days after the deluge? We’re still buried in snow err ice – now.
The maintenance people in our property did a great job clearing up the walkways/pathways/driveways but the city’s sanitation men are nowhere to be found. They have been in absentia and who knows when they will decide to clear the streets. Our area is not the only borough forsaken. Seeing all the video footage on the news makes it apparent that if you happen to live outside of Manhattan you’re out of luck.
Christmas day came and gone, and although there were areas that were replete with awesome Holiday decors and holiday lights, those are now overpowered by the blinding white snow that envelopes the area. Earlier today, with the sun shining intensely, the glistening snow on the ground made for a great day of wearing one of those fabulous sunnies. Give it a couple of days and when the ice/snow begins to melt it will become one unappealing sight.
