The Land of Snow and Ice

February 27, 2014

It’s no secret that most of the United States has been under a blanket of snow and ice for some time now. If you live in New York City, the beauty of fresh fallen snow and the wonderful smell of the cold quickly disappears. The lovely fluffy snow becomes disgusting black ice mountains and grey pools of slush and, the smell of the cold becomes tainted by the smell of frozen pee. At this point in the year (its late February) everyone has become tired of this awful weather.
Being disgusted by surroundings I recently escaped the city and went to the far east of Long Island. There I found beauty and was able to enjoy the snowy plains and crisp air again.

Seeing snow on the beach in Long Island can be rare. In the eight years that I have been going out to Long Island in the winter, I have only seen snow on the beach twice.
