Picture Postcard: Brooklyn Blizzard 2016

24 Jan

January 24, 2016

There is a huge blizzard hitting the east coast as I type this.  You might have heard this on the news. It is kind of a big deal. As of an hour ago, NYC already had over 27 inches of snow and it is still coming down. The Governor instituted a travel ban. Subways and buses shut down, stores closed. Everyone stay inside.

So of course I went outside and took pictures.

This is not me. Who would be taking the picture?

Out of the dozens of pictures I took, here are a few that I liked. Click on the thumbnails for bigger images. And thanks for looking.

A Good Old-Fashioned Polar Vortex

22 Jan

January 22, 2014

We had another one of those polar-vortex/bombogenesis things today, just like they had in the good ol’ days when they called these things what they are: snowstorms.

As a public service, I took to Facebook to give updates and helpful tips to the masses.

7 am: The snow is coming today.

Tip #1- In Brooklyn, it is acceptable to decorate your snowman with empty cans of motor oil and cigarette butts.

 

9 am: It is snowing out.

Tip #2: If you stand outside and try to catch a snowflake on your tongue, you may also catch a dog peeing on your leg.

 

12 pm: The snow is getting harder.

Tip #3: Your local McDonald’s now has 14 homeless guys sitting around the play area.

 

1:30 pm: The snow is getting deeper.

Tip #4: Deep snow can cover a lot of dog poop, so step carefully

 

5 pm: The snow is going to continue all night.

Tip#5: It’ll be dark out. Turn on some lights.

 

8 pm: The snow continues.

Tip #6: So does Keeping Up With The Kardashians. We all have our personal Hells.

 

If I saved just one life it will have been worth it.
