Like most New Yorkers presently I’ve had it with the repetitive snowfall after snowfall that’s hit NYC this winter season. Plus, though cushiony I have fallen on my bottom  more times than I can count.  Plus, I can no longer stand the deep freeze temps, the mile high mounds of hard ice  lining the cross-walks and the  muscle power I have exerted towards shoveling and cleaning  snow off the car. It’s more times than I  like .

I like snow cones  in the summer . Slush in the wintertime,  I can definitely do without because who knows  what lies within those black cesspool-like puddles.  I can also do without the  slow moving traffic that  turns a normally $12 cab ride  into a $30 snail ride to nowhere.

Right about now,  I want Ole’ Man Winter gone.  So go   vamoosh! goodbye!  get outta here, beat it, see ya later and don’t come  back.

 

Don’t get me wrong. I  love the Wintertime. In fact  my husband will tell you whenever it snows  I am the first one with my hands up to go  out the house to play in it or  grab my Akita Hiro to  head to Prospect Park.

The kids will let you know that  I will grab their  snowboards for them and off we go to have crazy fun but, this love has been tested.  This winter  season in NYC has been a long one with an  endless and relentless  beat down by mother nature.

There’s nothing more beautiful than looking out your window and seeing  fresh snowflakes falling . Seeing a doe and her family playing  in the  snow- thats the beauty of nature .Living in the suburbs or in the countryside definitely allows you to appreciate the beauty of  a freshly fallen  snow.

For city folks the beauty of  having it snow week after week wears thin. Not being able to get around as fast as one wants to, amounts to loss of  incoming dollars .

In Brooklyn, particularly in my nabe  of Crown Heights we have  been weathering the snowstorms as they come and has dealt with the results of it—-un-shoveled sidewalks, no parking spaces,  traffic congestion, pot holes in the streets and the unseen doggie poo and gosh knows what else mixed in with  the snow alongside  the sidewalks. Trust me,  it  has not been a pretty picture this winter.

So right now I am praying to the Sun Gods to come . Is it too much to ask for Springtime to arrive NOW and bring on the flowers, the butterflies and the bees.
