We stayed in Philadelphia an extra day as we woke to the snow coming down steadily. We didn’t fancy taking on the roads today so decided to book another night and see in the New Year in Philly. Our hotel was just along the wharf from where the fireworks were going to be set off. The morning was spent wandering around the downtown area and trying not to fall over in the snow, most of the streets were cleared but some were still all covered in snow. We returned to the hotel at three to settle in for the night. It gets dark at 5pm so is quite gloomy by 4pm especially with the heavy cloud cover. We ordered in Chinese from the Mandarin House and yes they came in the little boxes and a paper bag just like on tv.
