NYC Blizzard

Saturday, January 22nd, 2005 · No Comments

Jen and I really know how to pick a weekend to travel south. I’m in Hoboken at the moment, getting ready to take the Path Train into Manhattan to meet up with Jonty and Dan for brunch. And a blizzard is on the horizon.

Starting around 3pm today, the city is expected to get at least 2 feet of snow. Meanwhile, Saratoga Springs is only expecting a mere foot. Of course, that kind of snow in the north country is easier to deal with than it is down here in the city, if only because there’s not really anywhere to put the snow when it comes in force in this neck of the woods.

When we woke up this morning, we contemplated driving back home, but decided against it. I think blizzards are fun. After our afternoon outings, we’ll be staying warm by the fire and eating in tonight.

After some more snow tomorrow morning, it should be all cleared up for the most part, so hopefully we’ll make it back home in time to pick up the dogs from their B&B (bed & biscuits) before it closes.

In the meantime, I’m looking forward to trotting around Manhattan in my Bugabootoos. As a north countrier, I’ll likely be more prepared than most cityfolk. But until I get to the point where I’m wearing a hunting hat and camouflage jacket to trot around the city, I can at least pretend I’m chic in my big boots.
