Snowy, Snowy Sunlit Sunday

Though we're in the midst of a bona fide blizzard, Juno, yesterday was a beautiful sunny day. Knowing that today wouldn't encourage walking I indulged heartily yesterday, including walking by Central Park. There was still snow from Saturday's snowfall and the Park was lovely, perfect for Sunlit Sunday.

 This is my version...

...and this is Google's color version.
 
I had a 9:00 a.m. appointment this morning and it was snowing very lightly when I walked to the subway. It still was snowing lightly after my appointment when I got off the bus near my house. I called my friend Betsy and we had a coffee get-together and then made a last minute foray for more pre-blizzard food supplies. As of this afternoon I had enough yogurt to last until March, lots of vegetables and cans of soup. I am out of diet Coke, my one major snack indulgence, but I'm supplied with half and half and coffee for tomorrow morning.
 
This is the supermarket closest to my apartment. The lines to checkout go back into the aisles, a sign of Blizzard 2015 food hysteria.
 
 
I hear the salt spreaders outside, but otherwise it still just looks like any other snowstorm. From the infinite weather coverage it seems that the worst of the storm will occur after midnight. Rest assured, I will be snapping pictures -- from the comfort of my building lobby -- and will share them on the blog tomorrow. 
 
As always, thanks for visiting. If you're in the path of the storm, stay safe and cozy.

You can't fight Mother Nature. The snow is going to come. Those lines at the grocery store are long indeed. Better to be prepared than not. Stay safe and warm.

Great CP pics! Hope all is well your way. We had more snow overnight, not much, thankfully; but cold and cloudy.

Survived the "blizzard".....we only got 16 inches. I say "only" because they were predicting over 24 inches. I'm not complaining though!!!!! Hope you survived!

Lovely pictures of Central Park. So glad the storm lost it's intensity to some degree and everything returns to normal soon.

Been thinking of you a lot and watching the weather channel to keep up with the big storm that you guys are in for.
Your pictures are beautiful. I know I probably couldn't handle the cold but I still love where you live. I love that you share such beautiful pictures for us to enjoy.
Hope your warm and cozy. I am so bad when I hear we are having bad weather I make sure I won't run out of Diet Dr. Pepper. The heck with worrying about food. haha
Love
Maggie

I particularly liked your first two photos of Central Park. I was fortunate enough to visit once and was in awe of its size and beauty. (I re-added your link for you as the one you put was to your blog and not the specific post.)
