Winter Blistering Blast
- sarahbrowngb, CNN iReport producer
Venturing out into the bone chilling cold and winter blasts rocking New York City I found myself disoriented after 20 minutes of wandering the lonesome streets of lower Manhattan. Wind pelted my body until it was unnaturally numb and dysfunctional. My camera decided to stop working after 15 minutes outside in which I knew it was time to take cover in a warmer area. Stopping into a local bar in Battery Park I found the few brave souls in New York willing to become weather warriors for the sake of a good time. After warming up I headed back outside and saw snow drifting across the Westside Highway making conditions extremely slippery to drive. Along the sidewalks, snow drifted up two feet in some areas making traveling by foot just as treacherous.
