My heart goes out to everyone in southeastern England and, especially, London commuters who were pounded with their heaviest blizzard in over 18 years. We know what you’re going through, dear friends “across the pond”. I read that rail and airport services are a a standstill, 1500 schools closed, and millions couldn’t get to work.
When I visited England many years ago, I was struck by the similarities between London and New York. Both big, bustling cities, centers of commerce and culture, with nightlife, theater, and many places to get a pint! Indeed, we have a lot in common and I, like a lot of New Yorkers, felt an affinity for London that has stayed with me to this day. I have very fond memories of my trip, especially the people.
So I’d like to send out support and fellowship to my Brit friends as they deal with the severe storm. Just hang in there. This winter-weary New Yorker would also like to express solidarity and best wishes in true Museworthy fashion.
From the 19th century English painter Edward Robert Hughes, this is Heart of Snow. Now that’s what I call coping with winter!
