Turned out the snowpocalypse was a NOpocalypse for NYC. Good for us. Bad for areas further East and North. They did get the expected bazillion inches of snow. I believe they are still digging out their cars.
I took a snow day because they shut down the subways. Never before in the past 110 years have they shut down the subways!!!! Since I couldn’t actually get to work, The Husband, The Doggie and I decided to make the best of it and went for a lovely 2 hour walk in Prospect Park. Someone (not me) LOVES the snow and will take any opportunity to roll around in it and stick her snout in the snowdrifts.
We also got to see a bunch of cardinals, beautifully bright red against the bare trees and glistening new white snow. And finally, we saw a hawk, so well camouflaged in the trees I couldn’t see it until he moved his head.
Of course The Husband was the one who saw all the wildlife and pointed it out to me. A lion could have crossed my path, I wouldn’t have noticed!
