Snow beauty, 2010 blizzard

The much anticipated snow has finally coated he city with the white fluffy stuff, making up for the false alarm blizzard promised by meteoroloigists last weekend. While DC got buried under more than two feet of snow, we didn't get nary a flurry. Today it was finally our turn.

Everyone at the job seemed to be on "end-of-the world" mode. I love that---to see those panicked faces of co-workers trying to figure out if the elevated train tracks will freeze, preventing them from escaping to suburbia or to some hood in Brooklyn on the J line. Or others scrambling to the market to get end-of-the world comfort food like milk, bread, chips, cake, pies, beer and an assortment of canned goods that will be in the back of the cupboard until we move, or the nuclear fallout touches ground in the way of white, fluffy snowflakes.

Below are some quick pics I took with my pocket point and shoot camera that I'm really beginning to enjoy. It beats carrying around a pro camera all the time! One of my favorite places to be when it snows is Central Park...the beauty is at times breathtaking. Check out the pics below for some shots taken in NYC's first blizzard of he year!

The world did not end. The city simply took a bow to beauty.
