Tiger Woods

Followers of the now-defunct Park Avenue Paul blog would remember the hilarious photo of Tiger from the rain-delayed US Open on Long Island back in June. How prophetic that photo was! here it is, for those who missed it.
Q: what's the differnce between a golf ball and Cadillac?
A: Tiger can't drive a Cadillac 400 yards.

first snow for the season

winter does not start officially for another 16 days but today we had the first snow in the city. The flurries of big wet flakes started around 3 pm and continue but too light for any accumulation (up to 2-3 cm was predicted). it has been only 1-2 C since lunch time.
snow flurries on our terrace
check out those temperatures for the week ahead, but not much precipitation
sunday morning in Cnetral Park: a bit of ice on the leaves is all that accumulated (make a great 1000 piece jig saw puzzle!)
