My Favorite Things – New York City in the Snow

New York is a different city in the snow. Β The sounds are muffled, traffic slows to a crawl, and neon signs take on a new alluring softness. Β Last night as I trudged to work at Lincoln Center in the biting cold and swirling snow, this is what I saw:

      Hi Betsy,

      Thanks so much for your nice comment! I hope you didn’t have to drive in the storm last night. I hated dealing with the snow in Milwaukee when I lived there, but now it’s a treat to experience it (and not have to shovel or drive in it!)

      I hope to see you again sometime soon – Joana

      Thank you so much for your nice comment and for visiting my blog! The snow storm was beautiful…although now it’s a little less magical and just REALLY cold here. But to be honest, I love NY in any weather!

      With all best wishes,
      Joana

        You’re very welcome!

        Oh, sorry to hear that! I can only imagine how cold it is! I saw the pictures on the Internet of huge glass crashed in Apple’s NY store, so it must be REALLY cold! πŸ™‚ But, again, I agree with you, NY must be such a magical place even in this weather! I haven’t been there yet, but I already love it πŸ™‚

        Stay warm and best wishes to you too!

          Hi Natella,

          I didn’t know about the glass accident at the Apple store, but just looked it up. Apparently, it was due to a snow blower accidentally knocking into the glass…and the repair is supposedly going to cost $450,000! Can you image how bad the guy working the snow blower must feel? Aaack!

          We’re back to more snow tonight…but this will be just a dusting, I think.

          With all best wishes, πŸ™‚ Joana

            Hi Joana,

            Oh poor guy!

            Apple’s bad karma returned to them from all their customers, who had to repair their broken screens (I heard that replacing the glass screen is quite costly too ) πŸ™‚

            Have a great day!

              Hi Natella,

              Maybe it IS karmic retribution! I don’t own any fancy devices (apart from my computer) so I wasn’t aware about the Apple screen issues. If I have the chance, I might try to walk by the Apple store (sort of on the other side of town from where I live) and see the damage. I wonder how long it will take to be repaired?

              Hope you are having a nice week wherever you are! πŸ™‚ Joana

                Hi Joana!

                It finally snowed in my part of the world too! It was beautiful!

                I had a couple of friends, who dropped their iphones by accident and the screen got smashed and replacement would cost like 200$. I keep an eye on my iphone ever since (the only fancy device I own but i love it). Hope Apple finds a replacement or repairs the current one! πŸ™‚ Let me know, if you do get a chance to see it!
                Have a lovely weekend!

                  Hi Natella,

                  So where is your world? You’ve piqued my curiosity!

                  I did walk by the Apple store the other day. I had my camera with me, too, but there was no evidence of a broken window/wall. There was a workmen’s scaffolding truck inside the window, so maybe they had just finished repairing the window?

                  My mom has an iPhone, too…hard to believe she’s more technologically advanced than I am. Maybe I’ll get one sometime in the future…

                  πŸ™‚ Joana

                    Hi Joana!

                    I’m from Azerbaijan. It is located in between Europe and Asia. Usually, we don’t get much snow, so it’s a big thing for us πŸ™‚

                    Oh, probably they did finish repairing! They are fast!

                    Haha, I think our parents are even more interested in technology and gadgets than we are! πŸ™‚ iPhone is quite amazing though! With all the apps that have been added to the AppStore lately, it serves just like a computer on the go and saves me lots of time. I love scrolling thru my dashboard on WordPress app or looking thru Pinterest, if I need to kill time waiting for someone, etc.

                    Cheers,
                    Natella
