    Cool photos, what did you use to make them look like drawings/paintings? Did you or your sister take them? Super cool! We did not get much snow in LI, just slush.

      Thanks Maria! I snapped the photos on my iPhone 3G and edited them with the free Photoshop app. Mainly I increased the vibrance, sharpened them and added the border. My iPhone photos tend to be blurry so I enjoy playing around with them 🙂

    I like how you did with the photo! And I can’t believe it’s snowing even before November. Crazy!!
    Hope everything is alright with you!

      All is well, thanks for asking! We lucked out in downtown Manhattan and did not see the massive blackouts and downed trees that the suburbs had to deal with.

      Thanks! Fortunately the weather has improved today (cold but no rain or snow), so kids won’t have to trudge through the snow to trick or treat (in my neighborhood anyway!).

    Love all the effects on your photos! I can’t believe it snowed before Halloween! Global warming?

      Seriously– we have had some funky weather this year! A tornado, earthquake, hurricane. What’s next?

    I sent my skis in for repair at REI a couple of weeks ago. I told them no hurry as I was not expecting any snow until December. Glad this did not happen here. I would have been without skis.

    Way to get out there on your beat and take some pictures as the storm unfolded. New York sure has had some freaky weather this year.

      Our weather has been crazy! At least we didn’t have an earthquake too 🙂 The snow didn’t stick in my neighborhood, so no cross-country skiing opportunities, alas…

    I certainly don’t miss slushy puddles!! CAnnot believe this came so early…when I moved out of NYC it was during a blizzard that took everyone by surprise in early January – looks like they are coming earlier and earlier…

    I kinda loved the snow. Luckily we did our Halloween activities on Friday night, so we spent the entire day napping, recovering and then having hot pot for dinner.
