Snow Day NYC

The first snow storm of this winter season has hit New York. Can’t really say it’s that dramatic having just flown back from Montreal where it was near -40c with the wind chill. So cold your eyeballs start to freeze. Ugh. Still, it was fun on the subway this morning watching everyone bundled up interspersed with delivery guys with huge bunches of flowers (mostly roses).

Happy Snowy Valentines Day!


The cold snap seems to have hit New York – it’s -7c today, nothing compared to the -27c in Montreal the other day but still cold enough to make my eyeballs feel stiff. I hate that feeling! The other night popped into Royal Oak for a brief bit of dancing. On the way in it was cold and clear, an hour later when we left there was 1/2 inch of snow on the ground and the snow was so thick you could hardly see. Then it stopped. Fun.

It’s at this time of year I’m reminded of another aspect of New York that I love so much. How bright and sunny it is most of the time. Even though it’s freezing cold outside the sun is in the sky and there’s hardly any cloud. Very different from the average English grey day, which was all there seemed to be during my trip back home over Christmas.

Time to deploy the Christmas scarves and brave the day…
