Postcard from the winter that never ends

March 27, 2014 in New York City,Places,Postcards

Spring officially arrived last week, but it certainly hasn’t felt like it the last few days: low temperatures in the 20s, snowstorms, ย days that require layers, coats, beanies and gloves. I’ve been extraordinarily grateful for my escapes to Miami, Puerto Rico and the Dominican Republic this winter: if I hadn’t had those hits of sunshine, I don’t think I would have made it through these long stretches of bone-chilling cold with nearly as much joy.

This winter has been a good excuse for hot chocolate dates, ordering Thai delivery and spending Sunday nights on the couch with an intricate rotation of television programs. But every once in a while, it’s been fun to trade in the cozy confines for explorations in fresh air and fresh snow. There’s nothing quite as winter-in-NYC as sledding and snowballs in Central Park!

    I love snow photos.. I grew up in Ohio and loved winter sports. Really miss that living in a sunny place year round!

    The second photo is definitely my favorite! Snow sure is beautiful in the sunshine but I hope spring comes soon for you guys!

    I love the action shot of the snowball being thrown! I loved being back In the US for winter, but loved leaving for green, moderate temperatures in England a little but more ๐Ÿ™‚

  • They’e all great of course, but I think the first one is my fav!

  • I’m SO over winter!!!

  • Beautiful photos! I love the last one – I love when the city streets seem quiet and sleepy after the snow has just fallen, and this shot definitely captures that ๐Ÿ™‚
