The Big Snow

You may have heard that the East Coast was walloped with a snowstorm this weekend. As a Wisconsinite, the sound of snowplows scraping the pavement and snowblowers bustling down the blocks made me feel happily at home. I had a great time watching the snow from indoors, while writing and reading and making cookies. But I did venture outside–I had to see the record-breaking snow for myself! Here are some scenes from the city during and after the snow:

Sledders heading to the park, during the storm

More sledders in the street

Manhattan without cars was kind of magical

Silent night

The snowy streets were magical

The snowy streets were magical

Another quiet street

Another quiet street

Do you want to build a snowman?

The next morning: Do you want to build a snowman?

    Great pics! I especially liked the one of all the people building snowmen – very cool 🙂

      That park always has a “snowman showdown” with the first snow of the year–people had been waiting a long time to get outside and build stuff in the snow. 🙂
