WASHINGTON — A massive winter storm may have brought parts of the East Coast to a standstill — and frustrated millions of people who needed to get somewhere.
But through the eyes of people posting on Instagram, it also created a beautiful backdrop for memorable photos. Take a look at the collection gathered below.
I don’t know, you guys. Call me crazy, but I think the force of this weather is magical. Whenever January rolls around, I always end up feeling low (hashtag SAD, hashtag New Year/New Expectations), and this January hasn’t been an exception. Sometimes I can’t get out of my own head and it looks and feels like this: an impenetrable white-out, too much noise, a turning of the head to avoid being hurt. But then there are days when it’s quiet, calm, and people smile at you walking down the deserted avenue because we’re all experiencing the same thing. That doesn’t always happen. When this all turns to gray, we’ll hate it. But right now I just feel warm.
