I close my eyes and I see snow. There may be more this weekend, on Sunday. Maybe then we’ll get to have some spring?
On a related topic, the weekend thaw of the snow piles has resulted in a surprising amount of garbage and gloves on the sidewalk. I think there’s a connection between the litter and the gloves, but I can’t be sure.
There’s something optimistic about a snowfall. We’re turned into eternal kids who are hoping for the word that school is cancelled. NYC public schools already had a snow day this year; don’t know if we’ll see another.
The Cadman area, with Manhattan in the distance. I especially notice two things: the huge apartment buildings on the left, and the soccer field, which is forgotten except by those who use it.
What should you do? Restaurants need customers on days like this, but it’s painful to see the delivery guys riding bikes and scooters on snowy streets. The temperature is about 15, so going to pick up the food is not an option.
We’ve had two mini-snowstorms in four days. That’s a lot of snow for December, even if it didn’t really accumulate or stay on the ground long. I walked around a bit and went to a familiar place, the gas station.
When they renovated the Smith and Ninth Street F train station, the mosaic signage wasn’t returned to the platforms. Instead, there are stickers of mosaic, which are good enough to fool you unless you’re standing very close. BTW, have you seen the Magritte show at MoMA yet?
