We're in it together, at least. (Readers in New England, how are you fairing? Midwesterners, you're made of tough stock, but are you hanging in there? My Southern peeps, are you holding up?)
I've brainstormed a list of good things that come from an arctic blast:
- It could be useful for smoking cessation. I mean, if I had to take my cigarette break outside on a day that was negative five degrees, I'd consider breaking up with my pack-a-day habit.
- It tests the mettle of men who insist on only wearing shorts in the winter.
- It alters perspective enough to make a 30 degree day feel downright comfortable and a 70 degree day, heavenly.
What's the weather like where you are? Can you add to my list or give tips about how you're coping with the cold? (Better yet, anyone want to go on a vacation with me?)
