A snowy day in the Big Town

Social Diary
Wednesday, February 13, 2019. Snow came as forecast although not a storm or blizzard but light and wet. In New York it was on the wet side and of course made traffic even more difficult to get around. Cold and rainy by late afternoon into the evening, with temps at freezing. Mother Nature’s son.

In the Mood

Social Diary

What Becomes a Legend Most …

Social Diary
The weather warmed up Sunday morning, reaching up to the high 40s (practically tropical these days) by mid-afternoon. JH took this opening shot of today’s Diary sometime around 2001 at a party at Doubles. I accidentally came upon it looking up something else. Now, all these years later, it looks fresh and spiffy. An antidote […]... READ MORE

The RealFeel

Social Diary
Yesterday began mid-winter weather; polar vortex style. It started about 3 in the afternoon. I was walking one of the dogs. It was clear and cold, and suddenly I felt moisture on my face, oddly not raindrops, with an occasional flurry in sight. About ten minutes later it looked like flurries. Back in the apartment […]...

Life’s a merry-go-round

Social Diary
Raining steadily but lightly in New York as I write this late Tuesday night. It started lightly around midafternoon. Temps in the mid-30s.

The evolution

Social Diary
It’s 26 degrees as I write this at ten minutes to midnight on Monday. It was cold all day with temps touching the upper 30s. It was sunny (but not warm).

An often sunny Sunday yesterday in New York, with temperatures reaching up to the low 50s. I received an email from my ex-wife Sheila who lives out in Michigan where she says it is now very cold and expecting snow. She sent the message with this photograph she took from her hotel room window in […]... READ MORE

Women remembered

Social Diary
It’s 44 degrees as I write this Diary at midnight, 44 degrees warmer than it was only two nights ago. Yesterday was not as cold also, although the skies were mostly grey and the winter mood was in the air. Women remembered. As the world knows, Carol Channing died in Rancho Mirage on January 15th, […]... READ MORE

More on Mario

Social Diary
It was cold with some nice sunshine yesterday in New York, although it had “warmed up” (in the low 30s) after a below Zero RealFeel on Monday night. And they’re predicting temps in the 50s tomorrow. Stuff. We had a nice response to the Diary on Mario’s tribute/memorial. The power of his personality was very […]... READ MORE

Absolute Buatta

Social Diary
It was very cold in New York with the temperature in evening at 10 degrees and a RealFeel of -17. It’s the kind of cold you just want to get out of, and nothing feels better than a warm room after that. In late afternoon I went down to the Park Avenue Armory for a […]... READ MORE
