First Snow, in Park Slope, Brooklyn

First Snow, Brooklyn
Photo by myself on Fifth Avenue in Park Slope, Brooklyn.

The Northeaster we were warned about arrived Wednesday night in the form of snow and cold winds. Across the street, a little girl in pink with a pink umbrella waited for the light to change.

We rarely get snow in New York so early in the year, but this may just be the new normal? Last year we had snow the night before Halloween. As of this writing, we have three inches stuck on the ground.

The subway ride Wednesday night was strangely quiet, even though we've had a hurricane, a presidential election, then snow, all in rapid succession. No one batted an eye.

You lost your house and then a new storm with snow. What can be done, its almost to much to understand. I hope for a quick solution. Best wishes for all.

It is terrible what those poor people are going through. Snow in November is weird isn't it.

dare I say no one batted an eye, because they were all shell shocked?

I'm a snow-cynic, but the first (significant) snow still has the old magic, doesn't it. You've really captured it well here.

It is a wonderful photo Kitty, gosh all those poor souls still with no power in the cold.
Looks like a white Christmas coming?
