For most of my walk by the Hudson yesterday, it was just me and the Canada Geese. I was feeling fairly intrepid, until these bikers passed me by. One of them greeted me cheerfully as they passed, recognizing a kindred, snow-loving spirit. This was another occasion when the normal rules of engagement (ignore one another) didn't apply. When the weather warms up this place will be packed with people fishing, grilling, playing volleyball or blasting their cars' sound systems.
