"Snow–Challenged" New Yorkers Rejoice

NEW YORK CITY – Finally we New Yorkers do not have to wait any longer to make snowmen. We will have snow this Saturday at noon at the Central Park Winter Jam located at Naumburg Bandshell in Central Park. Snow guns and air compressors (lent by Gore Mountain) hooked up to city hydrants will create a snow storm with results which could cover up to one and a half acres with snow three feet deep. (If the temperature climbs above 45 degrees, some activities might be canceled.) Here's a second website for info.

There's been an email circulating the internet with misinformation regarding beautiful cut-out paper artwork attributed to a wrong source. Those amazing sculptures actually belong to one artist, Peter Callesen, who has also worked in snow and ice which can be enjoyed here.
