You'd think that by now, we'd be able to deal with winter. But alas, it's not to be. Boilers stop working; circuits are blown due to the use of space heaters; Amtrak has frozen tracks, and trains are delayed an hour; people show up at the train station in flimsy coats without gloves or hats; people try to speed during whiteouts. I think I will hibernate until late March. As a species, we're not meant to live places like this.
