52 Project: 6/52

6.52.2What is this sunshine all about!?  Its still very cold and crisp outside this afternoon but the sky is pale February, washed out and the coolest of blues. The snow is still piled up on every corner from our recent spate of snow storms. Though, this Buffalo transplant scoffs at the idea of three inches of accumulation being classified as a ‘Storm’.  I know, I know, its Snow Snobbery at its worst, but its how I feel. (and its the truth!! lol)

This winter has been a stand out winter in my opinion.  Most NYC winters are mild with the occasional snow, and two or three days of really cold (below 30F) weather.  I think being so close to the Atlantic and the heat retained in the concrete tempers the weather we get.

The world was a wintry wonderland again last week. I wandered around the park for a bit and took a few pictures.     I did one panoramic picture on my iphone from the ridge where the Summerhouse is, a rustic wooden structure on a craggy hill.  I could do with a few more weeks of this beauty.

Have a great week everyone!   -Marie

  1. You are from Buffalo!? So talking about snow snobbery..I giggle every time I see poor Georgia and that highway. The thruway in Buffalo (yes people still live here) has been like that off nad on since November!! I got stuck at work for two days. And it was feet of snow and 60mile an hour winds.

    • Yup! My dad was in the military so after he retired we settled in his home town of Warsaw NY. I went to Buffalo state and lived on Forrest Avenue right by the old Psych Center (I LOVE that old building). When I see poor Georgia on the TV, I just frown and shake my head. I know its hard if you have no experience driving in snow or ice… but still… 🙂
