Aussie Day vs NYC Emergency Weather

Last Thursday morning NYC declared it's "snowiest January on record, with 32.3 inches in Central Park compared to the previous record of 27.4 inches in 1925." For most of those who stayed indoor, you were probably very grateful. But, for those of you who braved the storm and went out for Australian Day or to a dinner/drinks you saw just how intense the storm was. Though the 2" of new snow every hour was quite frustrating to be mobile in, it also was one of the most beautiful nights I've seen in NY. People were diving off cars leaving snow angels in the snow, cars were spinning full 180's, and 2am snow ball fights were lining the bars. We happened to run into the only limo driver in town brave enough to drive Manhattan, who escorted us bar to bar. Though it took us 25 minutes to get from West. Village to Bowery, it was worth every fishtailed turn, every stuck vehicle along the way, and every $20 bill given to the driver. Only in NY. Cheers to my aussie girls Staci Child, Sherri Mathieson, Sarah Monteith and Kat, for the Australian motivation. My first Aussie Day has been Sharpie'd in the books!

We managed to get some photos + start a little photo booth at Bowery Electric with the complimentary roses.
