It's hovering right around 0 degrees here in New York today. On the elevator on the way up to my office, a woman said to me, "You know, it's cold today, but it's a different kind of cold. You know?" I didn't know. She continued, "It's cold, but it's not windy." Yeah, it may be 0 degrees, but hey, there's no wind chill.
And if I can revisit a thought from a previous post: What is it about an impending snow storm that everyone frantically stockpiles groceries? Sure enough, the day before an anticipated good snow, there are hoards of people filling their carts in the supermarkets. Eggs, milk, bread. What do these people do when it snows? I picture them all sitting around the kitchen table drinking large glasses of milk.
