I was especially excited upon opening my mailbox today. It contained two birthday cards from my mom (She always sends two b-day cards: One serious and sentimental, and one she finds comedic) plus the February 10th issue of The New Yorker with a perfectly timed cover, titled “Perfect Storm.”
In case you don’t live in the New York area or follow New Yorkers on Instagram or check weather.com incessantly like I do, it’s been snowy here in NYC. Today we’re experiencing a “wintry mix” of mostly sleet. Anyway I saw this New Yorker and the cover really resonated with me. I think it effectively conveys a snapshot of NYC living. And the image is just beautiful.

Happy Snow Day,
