"Due to severe weather conditions in New York, the US office is closed on Monday December 27th. Please email your requests to [email protected] and we will come back to you as soon as we can. "

That blizzard must really be bad to keep New York shut down.

Seems the airports are/were all closed.

Hopefully all those stranded travelers won't lose their jobs for not showing up at 8AM Monday morning.

Here in NYC suburbs of Long Island, people can finally get out to shovel, but I think the LIRR trains are still shut down, so lots of city's workforce, employers and employees alike, couldn't have made it in.

I bundled up around 3AM to get some blizzard shots, and promptly fell off of hidden curb flat onto stomach on the street.

Camera was fine, so it wouldn't have been bad if I had been wearing, instead of holding, my gloves.  ::) After a few minutes, I went inside for a bit when I couldn't feel my hand. Then took a bunch of videos starting with me inside, then going out to blizzard. Told myself I was doing it to "tell a story" - but I might have chosen that approach so half of each shoot would be inside.

Alas, shots more personally documentary than anything, since the blizzard thoroughly whipped me around and snowed on lenses despite shielding them with cloth whenever possible.

That's what you call devotion....lol
I hate the cold. My poor body just can't take it any more. I've been living in the south for the last 25 years after living up north for many years and the south beats the north any time...other than during the civil war... ;D

Donna, how you feel about the cold is how I feel about the heat. Anything on the right side of frostbite is fine with me, but forget about hot beaches....

funny line about S VS N :D

When we lived in Texas...I was born there but moved from Illinois.... the die hard northerner's would always tell Texans "If it wasn't for all us  da** Yankees all you Texans would be Mexican's"  because Texan's always gave northerner's a hard time. Sorry if I offended any one... ::)

I am kinda liking the mixture of hot and cold. I am a Flordanian refugee in Tennessee. We want to move here in the next year or two and looking for a city close to the same temps. and climate here. We short listed Colorado Springs, Co.. and still searching.
