FIRST PERSON | MANHATTAN, N.Y. -- Late Wednesday evening, Nor'easter hit New York City with rain, sleet, and snow. It was definitely a blast of wintry weather. The snow fell hard from the sky and the wind blew with force. The chill was in the air.
In midtown Manhattan, people waited in the snow shivering in the deepening cold for a bus while New Yorkers like me rushed to the subway to get home. The sidewalks were slippery, ankle-deep slush submerged parts of the streets, and the snow was sticking. Wet snow coated the debris left behind by Hurricane Sandy. A few door attendants shoveled snow from the sidewalks making a secure walkway for people.
After Hurricane Sandy battered the city last week, most New Yorkers felt they deserve a break from the crazy weather. Citizens who reside in lower Manhattan and in the storm-ravaged areas now had to suffer a setback in its Hurricane Sandy recovery efforts because of this storm.
