Snow, Dancing, Beer, a Cab


Two nights ago it snowed like mad in NYC. Which, for me, means one thing -- snowball fights and snow angles. So that's two things -- who's counting?

The evening started with sparkling wine and making crafty Christmas tree ornaments with some of my key people. Around midnight we set out for a park, snow flying everywhere, about 8 inches of blowing white powder covering the ground. Visibility was low. We were crossing a street, when a cab crawled by. His passenger window was open.

"Hi!" I said, smiling as he wind whipped snowflakes into my eyes.

"Hi!" he said back, smiling.

"You and your cabbies," my friend and bandmate -- hey, we've had 3 practice sessions, doubters! -- Tara joked.

Then we continued to the park, made snow angles, snow devils (snow angels face first), started two snowball fights with unsuspecting -- yet very willing -- groups, planned to recruit more snowballers in a Greenpoint bar, and ultimately succeeded in having a lot to drink and dancing until 4 a.m.

An incredible success of a snowy night.

  1. Nice blog! here i m sharing about Integra, The first production of Acura's Integra, in 1986, featured a very boxy body style.
    On it were pop-up headlights and smooth straight lines in its design similar to many other cars produced in the 1980s.
    It came with a four-cylinder 1.6L engine DOHC [Dual Over-Head Cam.] This engine is commonly known as a D16. Which gave the first Integra 115hp.
    The car itself was very popular and was known to be quick and sporty as well as having great handling in comparison to Honda's other models of the time.....
