nyc | it snowed, a bit

Road
Walking
Sledding

hello, hello! hope you all had a wonderful holiday! ours was nice and there was a blizzard here monday in case you hadn't heard ;). we had just under two feet of snow and for reasons yet to be determined, it was chaos and still challenging for many.

cars, buses, ambulances, trains and snow plows were getting stuck in the snow and being abandoned. scott really wanted to get to work, but the only way that was going to happen is if he walked as my half of the car said no way.

one lucky thing is that the storm happened during winter break, which is great for kids and school bus drivers. so, we end 2010 with a bang in our town. if the bad guys ever figure out how to make it snow on command, we're done (more pics here). hope you have a happy & safe new year. see you in 2011!

xo, cindy

ps the new song rolling in the deep by adele is so good. it's about love gone wrong, but not hopeless -

throw your soul threw every open door
count your blessings to find what you look for
turn my sorrow into treasured gold
you pay me back in kind and reap just what you sow

heart break can come from many places other than romantic love and the best gift we can give ourselves in each case is to let go of the pain when the clock strikes twelve on january 1st, if not sooner. i'm going to try.

You're so lucky to have all that snow :) I'm jealous! It's been in the 70s here... a bit too warm for me this time of year.

Happy 2011!!

I saw all the snow in the reports and thought of you guys. Some of the streets looked so winter wonderland, yet scary.
I hope things are melting a bit.
We are just doing the winter rain over here with cooler than average temps.

It was incredible, wasn't it? We didn't get as much as you did, but it was enough to cripple Philly!

Sending you and the boys heaps of love, we'll be thinking of you!

XOXO
