Santa, Rudolph and the Tappan Zee Bridge Lights

SANTAsleighFrom this picture, it looks like Santa Claus was doing OK what with the moon and a clear above-the-clouds path. Of course, there are no clouds at the North Pole (are there?), and while I didn’t follow Santa’s path on NORAD, I’m sure many did.

The project’s progressed since the previous year. Because he’s been following the Outreach Team on his computer — and knows many of the kids in school are interested in engineering — Santa was curious to see the project for himself.

Let’s hope he didn’t dip below the clouds over Westchester and Rockland Counties at 8 p.m. last night because if he did, these pictures are what saw. The fog was so thick it blocked the bridge’s lights, the same ones that shone brightly when I drove to Nyack the weekend before last.

Thanks to help from the EarthCam® construction cameras placed in several locations around the project site — and, of course, to Rudolph — Santa safely navigated his way around the area before steering above the clouds again.

RUDOLPH THE RED-NOSED REINDEER

Today’s bright without fog, and while it there is no snow, the day is special. Wishing you a Merry Christmas, and even if you don’t know the name Burl Ives — or heard him sing about Rudolph — there are some of us (OK, me) who every now and then believe in magic and miracles.

I’d like to know what you think.
