Manhattan almost came to a standstill after yesterday’s blizzard. That only happens in the worst storms. Many shops were dark, every Chase bank branch was closed, city buses were stopped in their tracks, subways weren’t running, the airports were paralyzed, cars were buried under mountains of snow, side steets were impassable by cars, calls to 911 for ambulances went through the roof. Even David didn’t go to work.
The forced lazy day gave me a chance to pay bills, send delinquent emails, organize the papers on my desk and buy two frames to replace ones that fell apart ages ago. They both held photos of my dad, so I’m glad they now look great in their new “homes.”
I’m also glad my daughter and her boyfriend were able to fly out of the city yesterday, before the storm hit. They’re on a much-needed vacation.
I hope all my FOF friends made their way through the storm without too much trouble. Mother Nature is the most omnipotent FOF of all.
