December in the City
Just a few scenes from our time in the city the other day. We went to see the Radio City Christmas Spectacular, an (almost) yearly tradition.
Of all the days to go into the city, it was probably the most wicked of days, weather-wise. It was snowing all morning, so I spent a good couple hours outside shoveling the driveway and clearing the snow off the car. If anyone happened to walk by or drive by incredibly slowly, they would have seen just this one big purple blob fighting the elements and shoveling snow. I was wearing thick purple corduroys, a purple coat, a purple hat and a purple scarf. Also, three pairs of socks and two pairs of gloves. The city was just as cold and even wetter, as it stopped snowing for a bit and just straight-out rained. The wind was crazy and, well, we didn't linger long outside. My feet weren't properly warm and dry until the next morning.
But we were determined! This was actually our third attempt at seeing the Christmas Spectacular this year, as the first two times we had unexpected family obligations. So, a couple sketchy craigslist interactions and a stubhub (or two) orders later, we finally made it to see the Rockettes. And to see Santa walk out into the audience right up to my brother's seat, it was all worth it.
