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,  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 :)

  • 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 :)
