We don't get massive snow storms each and every winter here in New York, most years we may get one storm in the city proper that gives us as much 6 or 7 inches. So whenever a New Yorker says "Do you remember the blizzard of - insert year - " we can all remember fairly well just which one they were talking about. 2010 was a whole other story. If someone said do you remember the blizzard of 2010, we'd all say in disgust "Which one?"
So on this 10th of February, when I woke up and saw the snow was going to be up past my knees AGAIN, I determined I was not going to spend my whole day off from work shoveling snow again. With that in mind, after joining my neighbors in the early morning digging each other out, I headed over to Silver Lakes park to stop for a few hours and "smell the roses". Or smell whatever one does try and smell when all of creation is covered under a foot of snow.
