La. One lovely Christmas, one crazy blizzard, and one hectic New Years Party later, I have decided to post some of the shots for my work-in-progress short as little .gifs. It fulfills the desire to post something visual and they don’t give too much away.
Actually, the New York blizzard a few weeks ago was pretty intense. It hit while my parents and I were driving back to my apartment, and we must have been less than 40 miles from of Queens when the storm started picking up steam. It took us about four hours to get through the city, for a Target truck had spun out in front of us on the Cross Bronx expressway, blocking the road, and the policeman trying to help had gotten his patrol vehicle stuck in a drift. With amazing good luck we made it within 3 blocks of my place, whereupon a mass of stuck cabs blocking the intersection forced us to park on the sidewalk by a building and trek through the blizzard on foot. The snow was so thick we were blinded by it, but it felt a little adventurous, like we were exploring in the Arctic wilderness rather than a street in Long Island City. After being tossed around by the wind for a few blocks we managed to arrive more or less unscathed and grateful of our relative luck in the matter, and awoke to find the . Definitely a memory made.
