It was really #Junobigdeal

As you’ve likely either heard or experienced firsthand, the crippling, dangerous, worst blizzard of all time that was supposedly going to slam into NYC hard on Monday night (according to the hyped up media outlets) insanely under-delivered. It produced, what us Midwesterners commonly refer to as “some snow.” Regardless, the city pitched a fit, and most of us spent Tuesday working from home. I’ve been lazy with bringing my camera out to document anything lately, but here are some photos I snapped while taking a lunch break walk around my neighborhood of Washington Heights.

I hope your snow day was filled with warm beverages, cold adventures, and spent beside good friends.

Surviving Manhattan: Wintery Mix Edition

Sunday evening, New York City had its first official snowfall of the season. While two years ago my naive heart would have fluttered with delight, this time around my feelings have evolved. Do you know what happens when masses of well-focused texters walk aimlessly into mobs of confused, luggage-toting tourists? And when you add oversized umbrellas, a snow/rain mixture and black ice into the mix? Chaos.

People in the city regularly cannot conceptualize walking on the right side of the sidewalk or slowing down at yellow lights. Bad weather turns smart people to stupid,  stupid people to glorified marshmallows and tourists to THE SLOWEST MOVING PEOPLE IN THE HISTORY OF THE WORLD. You’re right; I have become a part of the problem. But it’s frustrating and scary to navigate this city when the weather outside is nothing short of frightful. Because I haven’t made a Polyvore in a while, here’s a few things I think might help. Take it or leave it, because as I think I just successfully established, I’ve already lost it a little and it’s not even officially winter yet. Oy.
