THE DEC 26TH BLIZZARD IN NEW YORK CITY
I have to say that one of the first things that came to mind as I watched Jamie Stuart's excellent little 3 min. video of the Dec. 26th blizzard in NYC was, What were the people thinking as they worked and Jamie just filmed them?. Anway it may evoke painful memories for some of us and joyful ones for others. Me...I just loved it...both up here in Esopus where, even though I had the flu I just enjoyed it. Then later after Dec. 27th when I went snow shoeing in Alley Pond Park and an elderly couple, trodding through the Union Turnpike Secret Path as my niece and nephew used to call it, the couple asked me, What are they? And I said, They're snowshoes. Then the gentleman asked, How much do they cost. And I replied, About $125. He said..."Too much!." But they were "well worth it" for me. Enjoy Jamie's neat mini documentary of the blizzard.
