Top 10 Snowy New York Adventures

We’ve survived the first snowstorm of the season, but does that mean our wintry adventures are over? Far from it. Here are 10 ways you can get the most out of the icky sludgy stuff.

Get close to your fellow New Yorkers by squeezing gill to gill on the subways which seem to come even less often than usual. Bonus fun: practice being a pushy bitch by shoving to the space in the center of the train.

Get other subway passengers’ elbows jammed into your spine because they insist on putting their hands in their pockets.

Ice skate for free down the slippery sidewalk.

Practice walking like the 80-year old.

Test karma, like I did last night. An hour after I laughed at a guy who stepped ankle deep in a slush puddle cloaked as an ice slick, I did the same exact thing, except that since I’m shorter, it was more halfway up my calf.

Take a cab with a chatty driver who goes on and on about why other drivers do worse business than he does on a night like last night (when all you really want to do is make out with your date in the backseat).

Learn to love ugly-ass boots that don’t match your outfit.

Learn to love salt stains.

Get into work late and blame it on “train problems,” which for me is synonymous with “can’t get my lazy ass out of bed.”

And the snowiest New York adventure there is?

Get woken up in the middle of the night by the snowplow, think that you’re in grade school and that there’s a possibility of a snow day the next day, then realize your miserable 9 to 5 life.
