Lots of people were out and about in the park to play in the snow.
I like that red sled.
My neighborhood survived the recent snow storm.
Almost everything outside was covered with snow.
The aftermath of the storm left a lot of people digging their cars out of the snow.
Most people were appropriately dressed for the weather, except for this one guy who chose to wear shorts.
I came across a few snowmen.
I think this is my favorite.
The snow seems to bring out the fun and creativity in many New Yorkers.
It snowed last Saturday. I no longer have dogs to walk in rain, heat, snow, etc… and I had a fridge full of food. So I had no real reason to go out, if I didn’t have to. But I did. I went to pick up my new glasses. I took these photos with my new cell phone that a friend gave me for Christmas. It takes pretty good photos. Not bad at all.

In the background are men clearing up the snow.
Morningside Heights Park.
I forgot to wear my boots. Yikes! But I survived my walk.
I believe I’ve posted a photo of this bench with the engraved name plate before.
It is dedicated to someone named Rachel.
Oh, yes, here it is (autumn 2009).
And now, here it is Winter 2011.
Today, there is no more snow. We have spring-like weather. Yay!
Luckily, all the snow has melted. I’m SO happy. These photos were taking back in December 2010. I wanted to post them but never got a chance. Here they are now.
As I walked towards the park, I noticed two young men — tourists — heading to the park, too. How did I know they were tourists? Well, they didn’t walk or carry themselves like the locals. They walked slowly and were looking around, looking up at the buildings… The biggest giveaway was the camera around the neck of one of the men and a travel guide in the other’s hand. They stopped to consult their NYC tour guide.
As we walked up the sidewalk, one of the men climbed on a big mound of snow, dropped to the ground and started rolling around in the snow, waving his arms. "Take my photo, take my photo!" He said to his friend with the camera. I assume that is what he said because he spoke in a foreign language. His friend started taking his picture. I took one, too!
