The last snow of the season?


It’s been a tough winter for bicycle commuters and bike messengers in New York, with wave after wave of what weather forecasters like to call “snow events.”
The latest such event was early this week, but it didn’t last long. An old friend and longtime New Yorker, who now lives in Maine but frequently goes back to the Big Apple, snapped the photo below and e-mailed it to me.
“I took this,” he wrote, “at the southwest corner of 7th Avenue and 57th Street with my Droid 2 shortly after noon on Monday, February 21, not long after the snow stopped and the temperature began to climb.”
Is spring finally on the way?

  1. It is snowing lightly as I write this. 80% chance forecast for tomorrow. Hopefully it’ll be light. Spring has not arrived in Montreal.
