There are times when the one you love just tries your patience.
After teasing us with brief spring-like conditions this weekend, another round of Polar Vortex fun is threatening to come our way yet again. Dear old New York has been pummeling us with snowstorms since the year began, and it's getting harder and harder to keep the love going in the face of such abuse. Walking to work in blizzard-like conditions, stepping into ankle-deep slush puddles cleverly disguised as concrete, and playing slip and slide on the sidewalk week after week after week ... it's enough to wear down even the most ardent New York lover. So in my version of couples therapy, I've put together this mini photographic essay to remind us battered lovers of how New York can still make our hearts skip a beat, even as it literally knocks us off our feet.
Yup, New York can still dazzle even when she's being a frigid b*atch. It's been rough but I'm clinging on to the thought that one sweet day we'll wake up, not to snow-covered tree tops, but beautiful spring blooms. For now, we'll put up with the cariño brutal, New York. We know you'll make it up to us.
