First Snow For the Year in Lower Manhattan Last Night

Yesterday afternoon when I was out, we were just about to step into the Food Emporium at Union Square when I noticed snow flurries.  They were light and sort of disappeared by the time we left the grocery store to head home, but when we were walking up the street to our apartment building we noticed them again.  The snow continued to come down late into the night.  I took the following photos from our balcony.

I was really excited to see snow again.  I hadn’t seen any in years.  I always managed to be out of the country in deserts or the tropics, or in a part of the country where it didn’t snow, during winter.  This year, if there is any heavy snow (and it looks like there will be) I’ll get to see it all first hand, for better or worse.

The snow last night was light, and it didn’t last too well through the day today, but I’m sure there’ll be more.  It’ll be exciting for sure, at first at least, until the novelty of it wears off.

    Funny you should say that. The boiler just went out. No heat and no hot water. Tonight there's supposed to be a big blast of snow too. Well, guess my pajamas tonight will be multiple layers of thick blankets. It'll be nice to wake up to a blanket of white on the city though. ^_^

    Yay for snow! I'm certain that you'll get more of it, and from what I've seen on weather reports abroad, looks like it's already creating havoc in northern states. Stay warm!

    Did you go down after it? Hell, those lenses are so expensive I imagine a replacement cap isn't cheap either.

    Good stuff.
    I snapped a couple of photos around 2:30 am from the 5th floor of my building and dropped my lens cap out the window. Good thing it was just the cap.
