It was a fantastic week for nature in New York City this past week, starting with the total lunar eclipse on Wednesday night. I had never seen one, and it was stunning. We could see it right out the front window, luckily it wasn't obscured by the clouds that were around earlier in the evening. We found it interesting that the shadow didn't move linearly over the moon, but moved over it from left to right, then seemed to move away from bottom to top. A wonderful sight!
Then on Friday we were treated to a gorgeous snowstorm, at least in the morning before it turned to rain (ick). The sidewalks are pretty nasty now, but Central Park is still blanketed with snow.
