This is not the first blizzard to hit the area. I remember hearing stories from my granny about dealing with Brooklyn streets during 3 foot snow storms. So why, after many years of experience, is NYC having trouble with the elements? There are many rumors and stories swirling around this question.

But through the trials of the season, what I love most about Brooklyn shined bright in this time. With the lack of the city services, people we left to deal with it on their own. Much like my hometown when this happens, peoples compassion came out. Folks helped each other to dig out cars or walkways. They checked in on the elders on the block and ran to the store if they needed anything. Sure, folks may have wanted a couple dollars for the helping hand. But I didn't hear one person complain if they didn't get a dime.
