Memories of winter

A winter storm is due to hit the city before Christmas, but it doesn't look like we'll get any snow. While going through my archives, I came across some photos from previous snowier winters here in the East Village and am reminded that we still have an entire chilly season ahead of us.

2010 was the year of the blizzard that buried Avenue A in snow, trapping buses all night. Mayor Bloomberg callously told us lowly citizens to "go see a Broadway show" as he phoned it in from Bermuda. Anyway, the plows didn't come out until the following day, and it took hours to clear the buses off the avenue. Below is a snippet of video from that day. Good times.
