The National Weather Service is estimating between 4-7 inches of snow before daybreak. [Updated: So much for that accumulation.] When I was out a little earlier in the flurries some people seemed surprised by this turn of events, as if it was actually June instead of February.

[Back in October]
Back in October, EVG regular Jose Garcia told us about the arrival of a jet ski on East Fifth Street near Avenue C... which became a seemingly permanent fixture on the street.
In recent days Jose tells us that the jet ski got some company.
"And [the owners] seriously and tenderly move them both as a group effort to accommodate alternate side of the street parking ... all I think about is what a marvelous time they are anticipating on the water once the weather turns. I find it fascinating and adorable."

We spotted this tragic scene earlier this week on Avenue A at East 10th Street ... some poor child is now Mickey balloon-less...
At this point, we do not know if the balloon was lost before or after its intended destination. Perhaps an errant delivery person accidentally let go of the balloon on the way to the party ... or, after the celebration, the excited child let the balloon slip from his or her grasp... only to see it tangled above Avenue A ... slowly losing air... but Mickey, still stuck as of this morning, is managing this crisis. Still smiling.
