Snowy City
Three Legs
Snowy Statues

we knew snow was expected on saturday, but not until the evening. i suppose it was evening someplace at 11 am when we saw it change from rain to snow while on the subway heading to the museum of modern art for the de kooning exhibit.

although it's unusual to have snow this early, what really struck us was the weight of it on our umbrellas and the trees. so many trees have been lost and my brother in new jersey hasn't had power since saturday. we didn' lose power, but being cold & wet make us feel old. we couldn't get home fast enough that day.

xo, cindy

ps see anything strange in the second photo :)?

Oooh, I know! And to trick or treat in the snow! Without any power for the houselights! Wow, what a weekend. Hope the power comes back soon.

Hehehe. You know what they say about a man with 3 legs. No, I don't know, but there must be a saying, surely. This reminds me of the Norman Rockwell painting where he accidentally painted a man with 3 legs. :)

I cannot believe the snow for you guys. I hear we are supposed to have a bad winter, if that is the case NY will be off the chart! I see a 3 legged, 2 body, 1 headed person!! xo
