Wednesday brought the first snowstorm of the Long Island winter. Compared to other places on the East coast it wasn’t too bad – about 6-8 inches – and by Thursday afternoon the skies had cleared and I went down to West Meadow beach to see how the sand, snow and sea looked. (“Sand” here is a bit of an optimistic description, but there is some and it’s always a good spot for a walk or run.) It was deserted! Sunset was quite special.
