The Blizzard, Washington Square Park, Sunday 5 p.m.
At first the blizzard forecast for New York City seemed hard to believe. As the storm approached, each new forecast predicted greater and greater amounts of snow and blowing wind. But the storm did materialize. By 5 p.m. on Sunday, the storm shifted into high gear. Many people stayed hunkered down in their homes. Many people with dogs still needed to venture out in the elements.
As the light dawns on Monday, and a few people trudge out into the wind-battered city, the snow that has accumulated overnight is still hard to fathom.
