Photographer's Note

After almost two months of brutal weather, we've had a break the past few days. I didn't hesitate to take a walk and see what I might find. Something interesting always pops up. :-)

In Madison Square Park, amongst the slush and giant puddles, I found people getting some fresh air, and an entertaining pianist. He explained that the piano was his, and a friend had transported it to the park in his truck. The building behind this young man is the famous Flatiron once again.

About our crazy winter weather, as of today, this season is number five in the list of snowiest winters, with 56.6 inches (1.4 meters) of snow so far. We had an air temperature of 4 F (-16 C) in January, but with the wind chill it actually felt like -20 F (-29 C).

Our NYC winter has been colder and snowier than Anchorage, Alaska, and another snowstorm with freezing temps is due this week. It looks like we might move up from fifth place shortly... :-)

In the WS is the park lawn, just a few steps away from the pianist.
