The snowflakes are smaller than what other places gets, but it's a steady snowfall. Every couple of minutes, I look out of the window part of the front door to see the snowfall against the streetlight. Aesthetically, it's not much. However, the patterns and the way the wind makes it sway and swirl is mesmerizing. We're supposed to get 6 to 8 inches of snow (at least, that's what they said in an updated news report a few hours ago). Not worrying about federal and local government closings or even whether the subway and busses are running on time. That's one good thing about being unemployed.
