I drove in from my upstate place in the Catskill Mountains to the West Village of Manhattan yesterday just in time for the snow to start falling. I checked out the view from my front door a few times and then went to bed and awoke this AM to a REAL winter blizzard. They weren’t kidding! The view out my door and on Instagram tells me we’ve gotten about 6-7 inches, so far and it’s supposed to snow for another day! I have tickets to the live broadcast of SNL with Ronda Rousey and Selena Gomez tonight, so it should be fun getting uptown. Here are some of my Instagram pals pics. Jeffrey Slonim gave us a peek at Madonna‘s mega-mansion on the UES from his front stoop, NPH gives us his view in Harlem & SJP – who lives a few blocks away– shows snow piling up in her backyard. Closed galleries and museums gave us views of their gardens and snow art as a consolation and my friends, the sister design duo of Porter & Hollister Hovey, had to cancel their design show house they’ve worked so hard on. (Speaking of hardon, Wowlebrity Linda Simpson is apparently warm indoors with that shirtless, sexy TV jogger!) Fashion maven Derek Blasberg shows us evidence that a blizzard is not excuse NOT to wear stylin’ footwear. Lots of dogs in the white from all over like photographer Pamela Hanson & artist Jo Shane and where I came from in the Catskills, the cute Itty Bitty Griff and buddy sit in cute coats waiting for the flakes to fall. Let in snow! Stay warm, kids!
