Snow Day In New York

Winter used to be the season of cold.

In 1978 a blizzard dropped three feet of snow on the Northeast.

The suburbs were cut off from the cities by ten-foot drifts on the highways.

I lived in the East Village.

At night I clomped through the yellowing slush to CBGBs.

Army boots and a leather coat were our survival gear.

It was a great time to be 25.

Here’s a video of those times by Waylon Bones.
