It felt like the worst snow storm in my almost 6 years here. But apparently the one in February 2006 was even worse. A State of Emergency was declared throughout the state of New Jersey, all 3 major airports were shut down and The City was in a standstill – no bus service and no trains. I couldn’t even look out my window as the window sill accumulated so much snow. I was literally snowed in. Here are some shots I took on my way to work this morning.
This is how my street looked like this morning. Thank goodness my street was already plowed.
Pity the fool who owns this car…
This is the 4th street park I pass everyday. Check out the playground buried in snow.
After the snow storm, comes the gross, grey slush. Eeew!
Show this to your Little Twin Brats…perhaps they’d like to come visit me in the winter?
That’s literally what we did on this fine but nippy Saturday morning. And let me tell you about those hills! They were frustratingly challenging but unbelievably gratifying. So where exactly did we go? We rode around what is called the Great Swamp which literally is just one great swamp. But the scenery it opens up to as you ride through those hills are just breathtaking. I wish bikes came with a built in camera (kind of like computers) so I could snap a few pretty ones without having to stop and break the momentum.
Here are some pics taken from that awesome ride.
I have to pay a special tribute to my baby, Alex, who did a stupendous job! Thanks to this clunker, I truly believe that I can fly!
It was a great day to be out, on the saddle, taking in the fresh air and the lovely scenery. I’ll try to take more pictures next time for you to appreciate.
And what did YOU do this weekend?
