Is it April 5th? I thought so.

Apparently Mother Nature got a case of the pranks and just for kicks decided to shower all of NYC with a brief blizzard this afternoon. No f-ing joke, man. I was out apartment hunting with the girls in the bowels of Brooklyn and all of a sudden it was snowing. Really, it happened just like that. One minute, no snow. Next minute, lots and lots of the white stuff. I was driving (haven't done that in ages) and it was a veritable white-out. For those of you who haven't been privy to the wonders of a snowy clime, a white-out is like a black-out, but it's white and well, it's because of snow not a lack of electricity. Crazy stuff.

It's gorgeous, it's fun, ooh la la it's snowing! Yeah, that lasted for about 20 minutes and then it really started to mess with the driving and navigating and general not-getting-lost of it all. See, it was a wet snow and as such, it was a sticky snow. Street signs were completely caked in frozen precip and were rendered illegible. Kind of a hindrance to finding your way in an unfamiliar place.

All in all it was a nice little storm. We made it to all of our destinations, escaping harm at every turn, and got to see some fantastic nature stuff to boot. Despite the nasty slushy mess that was left after the pretty part was over, it was still a nice day. I missed Winter this year, so it's almost as if some greater force gave me a small taste of it just to make sure I remembered how to bundle up.

In case you're wondering, I've still got the touch.

P.S. It's 11:53 and I just got a call from a real estate broker wanting to tell me about some new loft listings he has in Williamsburg. Um, dude? It's almost midnight and you're calling me about apartments? What is wrong with you? I called you 3 days ago - in the middle of the afternoon - about a particular listing of yours, you took 3 days to get back to me and when you finally call me it's almost midnight on a Wednesday. You might want to consider 2 things, Seth from Sunrise Realty: 1) don't call people you've never spoken to before this late, 2) don't interrupt people when they start to answer a question you just asked them... especially if it's almost midnight. Prick.

WOT?? I cannot believe you just got snowed on, that truly sucks.

What about calling the realtor back at like 3:30 am tonight to say you thought about it and you'd like a showing RIGHT NOW. And then don't meet him there.

Snow so pretty. 88 here today. *sigh* I get sunburned driving to work.

And about the realtor. What an ass. I agree with Sandra.
