January is all set to be the snowiest month in decades. At least for Emerald City, and the I-90 D.C. to Boston corridor. Yikes! Be careful what you wish for gang. We went near a decade with very warm winters.
Even a few with no snow at all.
We have made up for this. The Northeast has been getting hit with heavy snow, sleet or rain about once a week since Christmas. Did I mention temps hitting 10f, and below regularly.
Yesterday we had yet another blizzard. Tomorrow a few more inches, and they're telling us another blow-out next week.
This time I didn't go out into the teeth of the storm. I watched from my rear window, and fire-escape. Brooklyn is mostly piles of 19th, and early 20th century bricks, and bad plumbing.
Still how I love her!
These snaps are of the assorted back yards of my 'Hood.
You're seeing the yards of a Jewish Orthodox kindergarten, a Haitian deli, a retired cop, the new Gay couple that bought the house in the middle there, and my fire-escape.
Mr. Mouse, you may recall him from his editorial about the state of the Republic a few weeks ago. Anyway Mouse reports, and comments on our recent weather. He also orders lunch.

Mr. Mouse orders Chinese takeout.
