The Blizzard and the Dog Walk

January 23, 2016

The dog must out.

Neither snow nor rain nor sleet nor gloom of night stays the dog and his walker from their appointed rounds.

We went out this morning around 8:30.

Inside the park, we spot a handful of sledders.image3.JPG

Deep inside my beautiful retaining wall, the raccoons are nestled all snug in their beds.image4.JPG

But where is everyone?

Back at home, snow, snow and snow.

Here are a few images from our snows of the past month.

In Morningside Park, a feral cat makes its way along the cliff near the iced-over waterfall.

The cat’s white legs look like little ice falls.

The pond in Morningside Park is sometimes frozen.

Other times, some kind of bubble machine prevents it from fully freezing.

After the snow, the sky clears and a hawk flies over the snowy landscape of Central Park.
