Metrotech Wite-Out

umbrellas are for snow

The weather was crummy – snowy and blowy – mid-afternoon. Maybe not exactly a Wite-Out, but it got me thinking… about the number of people who believe that Bob Dylan’s mother invented the correction fluid.

jackfruit season

You mean, because they’re jackfruits? It’s not the first time I’ve had trouble identifying these things. Their ginormousness threw me off. Get one today to feed your village.

You’ve been warned

they mean it

The police department isn’t saying why there’s no parking on Court Street and in front of the Municipal Building; they don’t have to. I like the personal, handwritten touch: Tow Away, 8 AM.

More snow, maybe

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?

hi there

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.
