Geez, the weather this winter has been uneventful. There's no letup of dull weather in sight, at least in New York. We took a gander at LAist this morning only to see that Los Angeles has more snow than Gotham City. The massive west coast storm has dropped up to eighteen inches of snow at higher elevations in Los Angeles County.
Ever so slightly warmer weather, daily highs in the low-40s, should arrive by Monday. While you're visiting that last link be sure to take weather.com's exciting poll: Which is your favorite season? See, even the people at the Weather Channel are bored with the weather.
Okay, we know what you're really asking. What the hell is that graphic, Gothamist? That graphic is Painting the Town White by Maurice Ketten. It appeared on the front page of the New York Evening World Daily Magazine one hundred years ago today. Miss Snow, wearing spats and a veil, is spreading a deep blanket of snow across the city. We found the paper by searching the Chronicling America: Historic American Newspapers archive at the Library of Congress. Other New York newspapers whose 1900-1910 contents can be searched are the Tribune and the Sun.
