    NYC snowfall . . . making it even more scenic!


    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     shortysmom told me, 'No damage, but it does seem colder than any year I can remember (I'm 51). It just seems a little more brutal than ever. Normally when it snows in NYC it is nice and calm and beautiful, but instead it is blustery, cold and frigid! I am wearing three shirts, two layers under my pants, a down coat, two hats, two scarfs and I am just about comfortable. It seems the weather extremes are just getting worse and worse. Crazy weather patterns!'
    - hhanks, CNN iReport producer

    I hate digging out of snow, I hate the cold, I hate the inconvenience, but I LOVE how it makes everything look so beautiful. It makes me forget how cold it is. Everything is blanketed in a beautiful white dusting that seems magical. Unfortunately, that snow eventually melts and turns into black mush. For as long as it lasts, I try to enjoy it. All photos taken in Battery Park NYC except the last one, which was taken in Staten Island after getting off the train.
