The Non-Blizzard of 2015

January 27th, 2015 Posted in Uncategorized

Our choir rehearsal tonight was cancelled for no good reason, in the end. The only times choir rehearsal has been cancelled in my entire 30 year history of singing with the Choral Society of Grace Church was on 9/11/2001, and during Hurricane Sandy! We only got what I would call a modest snowfall.

But New Yorkers are appreciating the atmosphere of a day off. I took a lot of pictures of people with their dogs after my friend Jackie explained the trials and tribulations of walking your dog in the snow. The one that got to me was how the salt hurts their poor little feet and some people put booties on their paws to address it. This dog was having a great time, though.

Runners gotta run. I stopped by my gym to see if I could take a swim and the answer was, “You can if a life guard shows up!” I’ll call later to see.

There was a bunch of sledding even though we don’t have much of what anyone would call “hills” around here. This was on the banks of the Hudson River.

Parents were using sleds instead of strollers to take their kids around. I got the sense that kids everywhere give this mode of transportation a big thumbs up.

More dog joy. This dog in the picture below was absolutely in love with the snow. My poor cats. They have never had the opportunity to play in the snow. Perhaps they are fine with that.

So that was our blizzard. Happy snow day everyone!!

    That dog in the first photo looks like he’s floating over the snow!

    He is floating!! He jumped just as I took that picture so he is airborne!

    I want a floating dog (or cat)! No little booties necessary! Just a leash to keep them from floating away!

    Well we got almost 2 feet! But all roads were cleared by Wed. night – no small feat.
