yes, February in NYC, during storm Nemo. We actually had excellent travel luck, with our return flight being canceled about 36 hours before it was scheduled, leaving us with plenty of opportunity to find accommodations and plan things to do. We were able to take the 1st jetblue flight back into PWM on saturday.
Despite all that general slushiness of the trip – we both had to buy extra socks, boots, and umbrella – it’s always great to go to the garment district and buy fabrics, trimmings, and miscellany in person, rather than over the internet.
As usual, the city is a little hard for me to take (crowded, dirty, loud, etc.) and there’s a 36 hour adjustment period where I’m irritated and want to go home. Then it passes and the city becomes tolerable.
