A Snowy View of Central Park

Snow in Central Park
Photo by myself just outside Central Park, at 60th Street and Central Park West.

We had another dusting of snow, Friday morning.

Weather reports warned of up to 6 inches. I'm not sure how much we really got, but it really was not too terrible.

I was lucky to be near Central Park after a morning meeting. People were walking on the pathways under the cover of umbrellas. Most of the snow came down around noon in huge flakes the size of quarters, that wafted down very slowly.

Back in the office, my coworkers and I gathered at the windows. You could see other office workers doing the same in the buildings around us. It felt like we were all in a giant snow globe.

I love this snowy snapshot of the park. Somehow it feels a lot more interesting than what we've had with the snow recently here in London.
