My Dog the Yeti: Effects of the Blizzard

January 23, 2016

After our morning blizzard walk, the dog and I hit the streets again mid-afternoon, shortly before NYC’s travel ban went into effect.

On 108th Street, a flock of sparrows fluttered between bare branches and the shelter of a building’s decorative shrubbery.IMG_2383.jpg

Many more people were now in Riverside Park to sled on the fine slopes.IMG_2393.JPG

And yet the park had a ghostly look.IMG_2400.JPG

The dog contemplated the blizzard.IMG_2397.jpg

And I contemplated the dog, wondering what he sees.IMG_2404.JPG

A well-camouflaged squirrel munched on an unidentifable object.IMG_2410.JPG

Dark-eyed Juncos ventured out in search of food. IMG_2409.JPG

Heading home, the streets were empty.IMG_2412.jpg

Inside our building, I discovered the dog had transformed into a yeti.IMG_2421.JPG

And if not a yeti, then what? I ask you. What is this creature? What?IMG_2413.jpg

Slowly, the dog returned to his canine form. IMG_2416.jpg

Fully dog again and dry, the beast slept off the transformation.IMG_2376.JPG
