Bomb Cyclone – The Beginning

East Villagers woke up this morning to find that all the predictions of snow came true. They're calling this the Bomb Cyclone, and from these pictures, you can see why!

Here you can see a couple of discarded Christmas trees, blown violently down East 4th Street:

Blown violently.

The wind was so strong, it blew this table from its original location into Tompkins Square Park, at Avenue B and East 7th Street:

Blown table.

Because so many East Villagers come from the Midwest, where bomb cyclones don't even raise an eyebrow, they are undaunted! Here is a typical East Villager, sitting in the park, talking on his cell phone:

"Hey, guess what? It's snowing."

Finally, here is a video of another intrepid East Villager, riding his Citibike to work.

Neither rain nor snow now Bomb Cyclone… etc.!
