hi guys. well, i was snowed in in southern maryland for a few days. it reminded me of growing up, being a child playing in the snow…
it just doesnt snow in the cities i have been living in like it does in the rural-ish suburb i grew up in.
they got about ten inches, and the city really shut down. it never snows that much there, and the streets went unplowed for awhile. my bus service back to nyc was canceled. ryan could not get his little sports car with rear wheel drive out of the driveway.
and we built a snowman!
and… (best part) AMISH PEOPLE PLOWED HIS DRIVEWAY!! i swear to you. i wishhhhh i had pics. i sadly do not. but he lives in an area with lots of amish, and they were riding through the neighborhood, a man and a young boy, three horses and a homemade plow made of plywood with a really big rock sitting on it. they pushed the snow so that it blocked ryans crossfire porche-looking car, and his roommates bmw. i personally dont think that was intentional ; )
whooo. back in nyc today. got in in the middle of the night. made it all the way on potentially icy streets from dc to nyc in a double decker bus. it was really windy and i had visions of tripping over, hitting ice. dying was def. a possibility. then, half asleep, i walked off the bus and right into a cab who pulled over bc i made eye contact w him. that was another death wish. nyc cab drivers do not slow down in bad weather. and also, they are from all over the world, and many times places that do not get snow… i was looking madly around the cab– does he have school pictures of his cute gap teethed kids? a rosary? no no… nothing. nothing that noted he had anything to live for past his life, my life, his cab… but somehow, we made it safely. i was a bit shaken from it all and am quite happy to walk through the snowy sludge for the next few days in my new black high tops.
(alex so happy for you and oregon!)
(xoxoox im so happy to be alive right now!)
