Posts Tagged ‘Northeast’

Those of us in the Northeast are still in throes of winter, regardless that a lot of it has melted.  I know we can expect more snow, only hope it is a snow fall and not a storm or blizzard.  Looking forward to the last snow of the season because I think I’m going to sprinkle grass seed all over the top and let it melt right down to the ground; I might have a greener spring! Ah but I digress…the reason I mentioned the snow was due to the fact that our Six Word Memoirs still speak to the long and bleak and snowy season we are in.

The Northeast is getting slammed this winter with snow storms, blizzards, snow lightning , you name it and we’ve gotten it.  This past Wednesday night we had yet another snow storm.  By morning 19 inches had fallen in Central Park.  Central Park is Manhattan’s emerald jewel in the summer  and alternatively a sparkly diamond and an iridescent opal in the winter.

As my regular readers know, many many of my Fab Foto Friday photos are taken in Central Park.  There’s just so much to see at any time of the year.  The birds, the flowers, the trees, the ponds, the landmarks, the bridges, the kids, the artists, the playgrounds, the picnicker, the runners, the skaters, the mimes, the jugglers, the acrobats, the break dancers, the gardens, the sculpture, the boats and ever so much more!

This Friday (and yes I am once again a day late) our Fab Fotos are from Central Park in all its beauty enhanced by 19″ of snow! This is what life in the City is when it snows!!!
