Here Comes the Snow

“A few feathery flakes are scattered widely through the air, and hover downward with uncertain flight, now almost alighting on the earth, now whirled again aloft into remote regions of the atmosphere.”—Nathaniel Hawthorne

Right now it's raining in New York and the wind is picking up. But by this afternoon snow will be falling and tomorrow the city will probably look like this photo (minus the horse-drawn carriages). Here comes Winter Storm Nemo. I plan on staying in and writing a bunch of tales for the blog (I'm afraid I've been falling behind with my goal of writing reviews of shows and exhibits before they close). And if it's not too bad, I might venture out and catch some of the 1933 films screening at Film Forum. Have a wonderful and warm weekend everyone.

This and other turn of the century New York snow photos can be found here.
