A Moment in the Snow in Manhattan


I had a very different post planned for today. But as I opened my photo folder I saw what Google had done with a picture I took this afternoon while I was waiting for the bus. The snow had just started falling and I wanted to capture the moment. The sepia tone is perfect for the Church, which is over one hundred years old. It's not what I planned, but it's just the right picture for a snowy winter evening.

I was up and out early, meeting a friend for a morning movie. We stopped with what seemed like all of the Upper West Side at Trader Joe's for some pre-storm food shopping hysteria and then had a late lunch. By the time I reached the library, my last errand of the day, the snow was falling. More snow is predicted for Thursday, but peeking at the weather for next week the numbers begin with 4. It may rain, but any day above 40 degrees sounds like a gift and I will be grateful for it. 

I'm joining my friends at The Enchanting Rose, one of my favorite places in BlogLand, for Roses of Inspiration. Please stop by, you'll meet some sweet bloggers.

As ever, thanks for visiting. Take good care and keep cozy!

A lovely photo, full of character. You have had a really long cold winter this year, you'll be glad when it's over. We have had a long hot (for us) summer and still holding the temps well. Autumn just beginning. Keep warm.

I agree ! Any day with a 40 something is a blessing after the bitter cold we've had. Hopefully we'l be seeing lots of them in the weeks to come.
