The trip hasn't gone too smoothly. The flight was slightly delayed due to water issues, as in we had a water leak. Then, one of my bags has gone missing. I have all my suits, but my hair dryer, brushes, make-up, and a spare pair of shoes never showed up. It supposed to be delivered, but I ain't banking on it arriving before I have my first set of interviews tomorrow.
Oh, and the best part: we're getting a snow storm! Yes, I just managed to slip into the city ahead of a storm that is supposed to dump 5 to 8 inches on the city by morning with more to come throughout Monday and Tuesday. While I doubt it will be enough to shut this city down, I seriously doubt getting a cab will be fun. Well, I always wondered what the city would look like covered in snow.
However, before the rain moved in (which is currently drenching the city in a steady downpour) and the snow eventually comes, I did manage to wander the city a little. Due to the locations of all the places I need to visit for work, I typically stay in Midtown. I'm one block over from Broadway, a few blocks up from Times Square, and Rockefeller Center, Radio City, and Fifth Avenue are just a stone's throw away. Because of the darkness, the pictures didn't come out too clear, but it's at least a glimpse of the coolness. Many trees are still coated in white lights and the skaters are still flocking to the ice rink at Rockefeller.
I think the rain and cold kept a lot of people inside tonight. People were still about, but the traffic was a lot lighter than what I am used to. Of course, Times Square was absolutely packed, but I think that part of the city always will be. Even in the cold and the rain, it's a awesome place to be. A visual treat.
Well, it's back to work for me. I've got some more work to get done to prepare for tomorrow and I also have to get a little more editing/writing done tonight. Keep your fingers crossed. Tomorrow could be an interesting day.
