Bury Me Deep

They're saying this is the sixth-biggest blizzard in New York history, with 20 inches on the ground. Not as amusing as I figured: It's all about the grisly winds... Let's take a walk back in time over the past 24 hours...The Brooklyn Heights Promenade... 10 a.m. Monday...On the Promenade. Notice passersby are actually standing on the bench seats.Road to nowhere... A small pathway in the sidewalk and then a 20-inch snow bank.The dig-out begins.Below, the snow reaches up to the bench seats.Montague Street, Brooklyn Heights.Sunday night, 9 p.m. in full blizzard mode, with 50 mph winds.Ten seconds of mayhem...Sunday evening, 8 p.m.Sunday, 3 p.m.Sunday 1 p.m.Sunday, noon.Sunday, 11 a.m.Sunday, 10:30 a.m., the calm before the storm.
