There's something about snow that brings out the best in people. Well, OK, sometimes brings out the best in people.
We've had record snow here in New York, and Sunday was a marvel. With the snow still coming down yesterday morning, the streets were nearly vacant of vehicles. I saw a couple of cabs spinning their wheels — and because it was a snowstorm, we pedestrians naturally pitched in and pushed the poor guys out.
Yesterday afternoon was like a party in Central Park. People poured out of their apartments and into the snow. Dogs, kids, sleds — so much fun. Where we were sledding, kidless adults would stop and look longingly. We offered our sleds for a turn or two. I think it made their day.
A lot of kids got snow days today — but sadly, New York public schools are open. Can you imagine? A record snow in New York, only to find out there is no snow day. That's cold, man — really cold.
