Snow day

We arrived in New York around 7:00 yesterday evening. It was 25 degrees and snowing, with about six inches of snow on the ground. Amazingly, this stuff was just falling from the sky and no one was doing anything about it! Photographic evidence forthcoming.

See, I haven’t seen snow up close in I don’t know how long. Probably at least 15 or 20 years. While I was born in Chicago, I’ve never spent any length of time in an area that gets snow, at least not since I was five years old when my family moved to California. Overall, I can’t say I care much for the stuff, but I’m always open for new experiences, so I came armed with a big coat, sweaters, and a scarf and gloves, and I’m ready for it. We’re about to head out into the city (ie, Manhattan; we’re staying with Rob and Sarah in Brooklyn) to go boot shopping for Sarai and to eat. No firm plans for tonight yet, but we’ll all be meeting up in the city this evening for dinner and drinks, at the very least.

It’s a balmy 35 degrees out this afternoon, but the weather forecast predicted it would get down as low as 23 tonight.
