Long Island

Cloudy. 27-36°F. There was 1 to 3 inches of snow overnight so I left two hours later than usual to allow time for the roads to be cleared of snow. When I headed out, the highways were okay but secondary roads on Long Island were still covered in snow. Oh well. I wasn't going to drive very fast anyway. It was a good day to be outside though. There wasn't any snow or rain during the daytime, the temperature was a lot higher than the brutal cold the day before, and the thin layer of fresh snow on the ground made for interesting hikes at Edgewood and Stillwell. The only disappointment was that Cedarmere was inaccessible because the driveway was still full of snow. I had a shovel and could've shoveled it for the county but it's easier to come back another day.

Dinner was at Curry Leaves in Flushing Chinatown again. I had prawn mee and an oyster omelette. Despite the redness of the soup, I would consider the prawn mee only medium in spiciness but the flavor was all there and quite authentic. They served the oyster omelette on a sizzling plate, which is something no other Malaysian restaurant I've been to has done. The portion size was generous for an appetizer. Snow started falling after dinner so it was a slow drive home on snow-covered roads.
