Blizzard of 2006

Today was a nice day to stay indoors. Consider these two pictures, taken at 3:00 PM yesterday afternoon here at my home just outside New York City....

And contrast against these two pictures taken today at about 12 noon today. It's hard to believe it was less than 24 hours between the time these pictures were taken.

Of course, the biggest problem here in the New York City area is that people here have NO IDEA how to drive correctly in snow. You see them slipping and sliding and slamming into each other when weather like this comes around. If you go to areas like Buffalo, New York or parts of Canada, where they get snow all the time, people get used to it, but here, you see a lot of accidents in weather like this as people fail to adapt their driving habits to the road conditions and lose control of their cars.
