I’ve been around.. just didn’t quite find a post worth sitting to write about, and have instead been “Instagram” busy. (Find me there as GothamChick) I have 15 followers, and I’ve been trying to post daily.
I love the app — but I still can’t do my posts without Flickr. (Where I have a healthy portfolio as Pinay New Yorker)
We got some serious snow during the week and I’ve been told we’re getting a little more tomorrow. Just a little. (Well, I sure hope so.)
So we got a lot of snow and it’s still lying around slowly “disappearing” if only because the temperatures are at record lows. We’re lucky to start the day with double digits. 9 degrees! That’s the norm these days.
You can hardly see the Empire State Building peeking from behind the thick blanket of snow falling on Manhattan.
The buses were hardly running and I wanted to make it to the other side to go home, so I walked. I had my umbrella but the snow was blowing from all sides. The good thing is I was properly attired with my snow boots and long coat, so save for a constant spray hitting my face, I was good. (My greatest fear wasn’t slipping but having raccoon eyes by the time I got to my destination! Vanity!!! HAHA!)
The kids, however, were sorely disappointed because the following day wasn’t declared a snow day. So my little guy trekked to school, but I spared him the walk home and had our friend pick him up instead of having extended day.
Like most things that come our way here in the big apple, we went through the storm and then moved on. That is so New York – moving on – and it keeps us going through the best and the worst of times.
By the time we got to this part of the city on Fifth Avenue and our bus crawled in front of the New York Public Library, we had been in the bus over an hour. And we did make it home at just under three. Three hours on the bus — yes..but we made it home.
