It's hard to believe that a week ago, NYC was hit with one of the biggest snowstorms ever recorded. It's already a distant memory, as the sun shines bright and most of the snow is now grey, dirty slush puddles. 

It was a magical day; the city came to a halt, the streets were silent and those of us who braved the snow, greeted each other with warm, small-town smiles and hellos. Here are a few of those snowflakes.
