My poor, beloved NYC is suffocating under a mountain of snow.
It seems like every two days there is a huge, major storm, and I can’t help but recall that scene from The Day After Tomorrow where the Statue of Liberty is poking out from under a frozen wasteland. Never saw the film, mind, because that one image in the previews was so damn terrifying…and now I’m living it.
I mean, can you even SEE the buildings anymore?! We’re getting pushed out! Nature is taking back what was rightfully hers! A new ice age is upon us!
You can actually SEE this abominable snow falling in the photo above. And look at that pathway…all slush and muck! I got new boots for Christmas and they’ve already given up trying to keep out the winter horribleness! Every sidewalk is an ice rink! Every curb is a frozen lake! One can practically see Rose and Jack floating by on a piece of driftwood vowing to “Never let go” ! It’s a disaster!
Mercurial folks that we are, New Yorkers.
