The Blizzard of 2010 In 38 Seconds
New York was hit by a massive blizzard the day after Christmas with nearly two feet blanketing the city in less than 24 hours. Unfortunately, or maybe fortunately, I missed all the excitement as I've been down in Maryland where we got barely a dusting from the storm. But I've been reading all about it on the web.
There have been some great photos in the TIMES of the storm and it's aftereffects, the one above taken on a Sackett Street in Park Slope. And there was a great time lapse video of the storm posted to Vimeo yesterday which, so far has gotten more than a million hits. It's a fun and funny look at the blizzard, as the videomaker keeps trying to keep his clock above the rapidly accumulating snow.
