Thousands of university students in New York City, including yours truly, were let loose for Spring Break this week just in the nick of time. Like Canadian geese, many of us migrated South for the winter and barely swerved Winter Storm Stella, which blasted NYC with several inches of snow Tuesday. Although the storm wasn't as bad as originally predicted, any snow in mid-March still sucks, and it's definitely enough to make you wish you had gotten out of town too. These 21 pictures of New York in the blizzard will make you wish you were in Florida like I am right now.
As I write this article poolside, cackling at the plebeians fighting through Trader Joe's lines and desperately trying to order delivery, I still feel your pain. The very first winter I lived in New York (after having lived my whole life in South Texas), the accumulated snowfall was almost 60 inches. It was enough to make you go stir-crazy, especially with no inoculation to the specific misery of a snowstorm.
If I could, I'd bring you all with me to Florida so we could all live in such good fortune, but alas, I don't have that kind of dough. For now, commiserate with these pictures of the snow and try to forget how f***ing cold it is outside.

Even though the weather sucks sometimes, New York City is still one of the most beautiful places in the world, and even moreso when it snows. It'll probably all be melted by sometime next week, so just cuddle up with Netflix and try to order a piña colada if GrubHub is still working. I'll be on the beach if you need me.
