Christmastime in the City


http://Christmastime in the City

As beautiful as snow is in the country and suburban areas, to my city-bred heart there really is nothing quite as glorious as the peace and beauty of softly falling snow in the city.  The contrast of the big flakes with the lights of the city — especially at Christmastime with all the sparkling decorations — and the hush that descends with the newly fallen snow is indescribable, but it is definitely something that once experienced, it stays with you forever.  Unfortunately, as any NYC resident knows, snow doesn’t stay that way very long in the city… it very quickly turns to black, grey, yellow, and other colors I won’t even mention, the ice and sludge mount at corners and crosswalks, and the peace disappears into the jarring noise of traffic sounds as the city reawakens and resumes its interrupted pace.  But for those first few hours, when the snow is still steadily falling, the wind is still, and all is peace and quiet, it’s a most beautiful sight…
