Snowmageddon

They’re predicting 20-30″ of snow for New York City over the next two days. The nice thing about being an urbanite is that snow days now are just as magical as they were when I was a kid. Everyone stays home in their pajamas; there are no cars to clean off, no driveways to shovel and no slippery roads to worry about.

But it’s the hush I like best. It’s a Narnian hush, full of the possibility of magic and the mystery of a world transformed. If you ever want to know what it feels like to be inside a snow globe, Manhattan after a blizzard has got to be the closest you can get.

  1. And by comparison, here in Minnesota, we’re having a dry and not terribly cold winter. The ice caves aren’t even open yet!

  2. Some of the suburbs got hit hard but we ended up with only about 6″. It’s callous of me to complain that the storm wasn’t worse but I was all set to hunker down in the blizzard and now I’m oddly disappointed. That’ s the prevailing mood in Manhattan that I can see. As you know, New Yorkers are great in a crisis but they get REALLY pissy if you get them to prepare for a crisis that doesn’t happen.
