JSP Visual Week In Review | 02.08.14
Another week, another blast of cold, ice and snow here in The Great State of New Jersey. No weather issues with The Big Game last Sunday, but a scant eight hours later, we got socked with the white stuff. Nearly nine inches where we live. Kids have used up all their snow days already.
At this rate, they’ll be cracking the books till the 4th of July firecrackers pop.
The week started with snow and ended with me in a meeting across the street from Jay Z and Beyonce’s pad down in Tribeca. The creative energy in that part of NYC is incredible.
Now this week starts a run where I’ll see most of February, not from the confines of Upper Monmouth County, but from other points near and far. I’ll be in Jersey City next week for a work conference. Then, leave for another new adventure.
More to come…
