New York gets ready for a Blizzard

New York schools were closed Wednesday . We were expecting 18in of snow. Will we get it? No. A week ago when DC got hit they said we would get 6-12in. how much did we get? zero. I should of taken this one more serious. The day before my postman said he wouldn’t pick up – snow day. But of course I didn’t.

I decided like any good NYer to do all my errands before the snow got deep.
Everything was closed except food places. That was the first time since 1996 that NY partly shut down because of snow. It was the first time I can remember it shutting BEFORE a blizzard.

Snow just got started

These were taken early in the day. It snowed all day and all night. NY was open for business and back to school the next morning.

Coolest thing? the photos you see above were taken with my phone and cropped down to less than half their original size.

Uncool – my guy says I don’t need a camera with a phone like that. So much for my valentine day gift.
