|I'm the speck on the left in the back!|
Searching on the internet I learned that the Rachel Ray show should be taping around 12:00. It was now 10:00 and I had to get a shower and take about a 20 min walk to get to the show. And how much would the snow get in my way? Well I decided to take a super fast shower and dart out the door to see if I could get a standby seat. Getting there wasn't too bad but for every crosswalk that was cleared of snow there was one that seemed like an obstacle course of snow and slush! I made it and they had plenty of seats still available! I've never been to a television show so it was really fun to see how it all worked.
After the show, I had a few hours to waste until I was to meet Bill. The leader from the school Bill was attending was taking a group to the World Trade Center site. I got a late lunch at Goodburger, a New York fast food chain. I had a very good grilled burger with real cheese. I had several more blocks to trek before I got to where Bill was and unfortunately I wasn't able to keep my feet dry. It was inevitable and I finally plunged my feet into an icy slush puddle trying to cross the street. Shooting pain followed by total numbness! I kept walking to get the water out and keep the blood flowing to my toes! Stopped into a Duane and Reade store (drugstore) and got some dry socks. Now I'll be able to handle the tour tonight.
