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.


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.
