Good links, Sujatha. Hope the new snow blower is working. My flight takes off from New York City on the 24th. Hope the weather calms down by then and I will not be faced with flight delays or cancellations. What a mess!

I saw the Carmen Herrera piece last night and wondered about the same thing. Although I find Herrera's geometric creations quite attractive, especially her color scheme, I think that her age does make an impact on the viewer. Everyone loves a Grandma Moses.

Actually, it's an old snow blower from 5 years ago, brought out after a brief retirement over the last 2-3 years. There's a slight dip in the 'March towards Global Warming' graph this year, after all.
You should be fine flying out from NY, I think. The forecast suggests cold but clear weather over the next few days.
Herrera's creations are quite lovely, but I wonder too whether some of the spotlight is just marketing hype, based on her age and connections.
