Winter Storms Pax and Quintus

We suffered through Snowstorm Pax a couple of days ago. It was like the previous snowstorm with sparrows in the subway station and once again I took my friend's dog to the park and we romped down the lane in the snow. This time it wasn't as pretty in Central Park as the snow alternated with rain and so the trees didn't have any snow on them. We are now in the midst of Snowstorm Quintus (who names them anyhow?) and so far it's not too bad but the snow is falling on top of the old snow. The people who clear the sidewalks dump the snow on the street and the people who clear the streets push the snow back towards the sidewalks so there are hills of dirty snow around the blocks, which will become mountains if this continues, with pools of melted snow/rain at the corners. I know it's not as bad as a true Fargo winter but it comes close and, though I do prefer cold weather over the heat of summer, enough is enough. I also discovered my two pairs of waterproof snowboots are no longer waterproof *sigh*

Hugs darlin.. In a city where snow is usually scarce and 3 inches can cause it to go into panic mode, what you've been slammed with is truly a NYC winter horror story. <3 Stay warm and dry if possible. Hugs

Well usually we are well prepared for a snowstorm no matter how many inches but this year it's been one after the other which is sort of wearing us out. However my friend's dog is having the best winter ever in her opinion.

I'm warm and reasonably dry (except for my feet).

Don't hurt yourself shoveling all that snow you're getting.

You have names for your snow falls? I like that. :D

They started doing that a few years ago I guess to make it more dramatic or something. So we have named hurricanes in summer and named snowstorms in winter.
