Last night we got some six inches or so of snow, so today for the first time in many, many years it’s a white Christmas.
Unfortunately, many have been completely unprepared for this amount of snow, including the company operating public transportation in the city. They seem to have completely capitulated now, and shut down all but two subway lines for the next 24 hours.
Hence I had the pleasure of walking the 4.5 km distance to the butcher this morning in order to pick up the main ingredient for tonight’s dinner. All while it kept snowing, of course. Sure, I could have taken a cab (if I would have found one, apparently they are in high demand today), but trying to lower my environmental impact, that was out of the question. And since I missed running practice yesterday, at least I got some exercise that way.
