New York City Alaska Style

The crazy snow storms that are hitting the east coast in the US. Every homeowner in NYC is shoveling snow about 6 times per week due to the fact we got the most snow this winter in all the 30 years I have been living here. News report that we have not seen snow like this since the 1950's. NYC winters normally has about 25 inches of snow, but this year we got over 40 inches. NYC has a law that must keep our sidewalks clean and clear for public safety. If there is snow and we do not shovel it off the sidewalk, then the homeowners will get fined. If anyone slips or falls on an un-shoveled sidewalk, the homeowner can get sued. Here are some pictures of the snow that we are getting in NYC.

These pictures are taken during Snow Strom Thor on March 5, 2015. This scene with the orange snowplow trucks is an incident where the snowplow unfortunately plowed into the car right by the corner and caused a dent. These guys and the damaged car driver were there for over an hour dealing with this incident. The snow piles most of us shoveled off to the sidewalks are around 4 feet tall during this snowstorm.

I was going to upload pictures of the 100 plus feet of iceberg that formed in the Hudson River bay, but unfortunately it all melted the next day. But my FS neighbor Red Top was nice enough to sent me a link with pictures of the NYC icebergs. So please click on this link and enjoy! The pictures are amazing!!! I still can't believe NYC was colder than Alaska this year! But this also means that global warming is doing terrible things to our planet due to harmful carbon dioxide emissions caused by us. Please take a moment to read this article about carbon dioxide emissions and help to reduce CO2 emissions! I don't want another season of Alaska in NYC again, not matter how cool the iceberg looks!!!



 And I just want to say hi to all my friends in FS!^^ And here is a picture of Zilly...hahhaa...Zilly's amazing winter boots from JCrew that kept my toes warm and dry in this crazy snow, rain, hail, and slushy winter:)

Soysuva's mom recently have a stroke. She is out of the hospital and recovering with the care of her family. Having a stroke will change the lives of everyone within the family. Soysuva's mom will be going through some tough years to recover, and hopefully with therapy she can go smoothly forward with her life. 

I want to share the news with you and pray Soysvua's mom will continue to get healthier and better everyday. I hope all her family will be there for her, and everyone will love and support each other.

During tough times like this we really need good wishes, family and friends around to help. I hope everyone will give Soysuva and her family some words of support, encouragement, and prayer for Soyuva mom's health.
