Snow Peek in Central Park

Apparently we had the most snow on record in Central Park this week – 11″? Surely there has been more that that? I don’t know how long ago they started keeping records but really?


We still managed to get out for a bite to eat, didn’t even try the car.

The next morning although it was bitterly cold the sun was shining, it does that here, so I took a little stroll in the Park. Wont be sitting down then……..


Not as bad as I’d thought!


The Reservoir was frozen in places, snowballs highlighting the ice.



Fifteen minutes was enough it’s colder than it looks, then back inside to thaw out and crack on with my quilting 🙂

    Great photos! It’s the same in the U.K. – every year something happens with the weather which is the best/worst/deepest/wettest/windiest since records began and, although my French isn’t up to detailed statistics, I think it’s the same here in France too.

    Wow so much snow. We are melting here in Melbourne , Australia with the hottest heatwave temperatures ever. What a funny world we live in.

    Slight change from the early sign of spring in Kent. Crocus and other early spring flowers are appearing on the stray, the many green spaces in Harrogate.

      Aw, lovely 🙂 Kent is under so much water the bulbs will probably be rotting. So glad you’re enjoying your new town up there on higher ground.

    Your snow is amazingly, beautifully, stunning. I’m jealous. Here in southern Britain we have record amounts of rain. Not quite as pretty.
