There may not have been a drop of snow last night, but today has made up for it. Lots of snow, though in Manhattan it's not quite the blizzard that other parts of the area are having. Of course there are hours more of snow to come. These two pictures were taken right outside the front door of my building. The big white bump in the bottom picture is a buried car.
I console myself with the realization that spring officially begins in 39 days and that the first home game for the Yankees (against Los Angeles) is on April 11, just about two months away. Somewhere in the next month a crocus will pop its head up and then a tulip or two and then the irises in full profusion. Then this storm, like all the rest, will just be memory. Can't wait!
The Special Gardening issue of Martha Stewart Living arrived this afternoon -- a big thank you to my postman and to Kate for the subscription. I'm about to make macaroni and cheese with whole wheat pasta and low fat cheese and savor a cozy dinner and pictures of gardens and sunshine and swimming pools. Not a bad evening at all.
