From Friday night through Saturday, we in New York experienced one of the biggest snowstorms we've had in a while.
Now, if you live in a place like Vermont or Montana or the Alps, you might think it's funny that we'd make such a big deal about 30 centimeters (12 inches) of snow. But city officials and media are expressing gratitude that the storm--which brought winds of up to 110 kph (70 mph) and a low temperature of -12C (10F)-came our way at the start of the weekend.
Because the temperature has remained well below freezing, the snow hasn't melted. I have to wonder, then, how snow accumulates in the ways and places it does:
I also can't help but to wonder about vehicles parked on the street. Are they parked with the knowledge of the approaching storm? Or do people leave them, go and do wherever and whatever, and the weather just happens to turn:
Does anybody make knobby or studded tires for scooters?
