New York's Blizzard of '06

Location: New York City, USA (40° 43′ 0″ N, 74° 0′ 0″ W)
Date: 12 February 2006; 8.15am
Camera: Canon 300D with kit lens

This is not the current Big Chill that is sweeping Europe and USA. This was the biggest winter storm in New York City history- lionization as the Blizzard of '06- that dumped a record 26.9 inches of snow overnight in New York City. An awesome storm transformed the city milk-white that morning, exceeding all forecasts. It was really quite amazing as it was still pretty drab and just chill as I walked back to my hostel around 10pm the previous night. The whole landscape was just totally transformed when I looked out the windows in the morning. It was a very cold day but was rather fun to witness and experience such a transformation.
