Blizzard Hercules hit the East Coast last night and today with howling winds and bitter cold.
I have to admit that I love snow, at least while it is falling and covering everything in a blanket of white. It muffles the traffic and transforms the city into a beautiful and romantic wonderland.
To celebrate the first snow storm of 2014, here are snow inspired paintings, from Peter Brueghel to Camille Pissarro. Do you have a favorite?
