 It has been a hot, humid, very rainy summer in NYC. For me – it is always a bad hair day. Since summer is a time of reruns I thought remembering other weather events might be fun and in this case…cooling. It was on January 24-26 of 2016 when 27.5 inches of snow buried NYCThe NYC blizzard kept most of us close to home (little did we know that four years later we would all be staying close to home due to the pandemic). Here are a few wintry photos from my neighborhood outing at the time. A citywide travel ban was in effect. It was eerily quiet out there except for an occasional snowplow. Our NYC zoos were closed for two days. Hope you all are ‘weathering’ this crazy summer and staying safe.

The NYC blizzard kept most of us close to home.  Here are a few wintry photos from my neighborhood outing yesterday. I especially missed Benny the dog – he loved the snow. Sigh. The citywide travel ban is in effect until 7am.  It is eerily quiet out there except for an occasional snowplow. Our zoos are closed for a second day. Guess I’ll stay home with my own little feline zoo.BLIZZARD1.23.16
