Yes, New York is in the middle of a feisty blizzard, right when I have plans to board a flight to Spain tomorrow evening. I'm still hoping that somehow everything will work out, and that on Wednesday morning I'll arrive in Madrid after all, to 50 degree Spanish weather and all sorts of new sights and sounds (and smells and tastes). I'll be visiting Madrid and Barcelona (for the first time!!), returning on 1/5/11 (2011?!!!), but I am keeping my fingers crossed I'll be able to at least post a few photos before then. (!!!!) (Just adding parenthetical explanation points for the sake of consistency)
I went out today, just to look things over, and after forty minutes in Central Park I ended up with neon pink cheeks and a face wet with snow. But I had good black coffee and rum cake at Cafe Fledermaus at the Neue Galerie at some point between outside and home, so I can't complain.
Wishing everyone a happy New Year - and that you are all warm and dry... peace! love! joy! (Maybe that's the rum cake talking...)
