Upon my arrival at about 7:30 a.m.on Wednesday, just peeking through the tiny window on the plane, this as my initial view of the snow blanket that mother nature had dropped on the city. I was grateful I had made it!
Once I reached the Omni Hotel, I realized the walk of about three to four blocks though the Olympic Centennial Park to the mart would provide an interesting journey each day for this Floridian. The first few days the streets and sidewalks were mostly covered by frozen slush, which would have been perfect if I had ice skates. Walking in the middle of the street seemed to be the norm unless you wanted to do the slip and slide on the ice.
After being greeted by the little snow dude, I then looked up to see the skyline here with the flags waving from so many different countries on this walkway from the 1996 Olympic summer games. It seemed to be a picture postcard sort of day. I totally forgot about the chill in the air and enjoyed the view!
