Cold is finally here. Temps have been frigid the past several days, with highs not hitting 50 and lows easily dipping down near freezing. The past couple of days have even necessitated gloves and a parka. A few people are still walking around in shorts but they are few and far between. The mass grumbling and moaning haven’t started yet, but this seems to be mostly because the cold snap was not preceded by much of anything in the way of preliminaries — it was, simply, suddenly way colder than it’s been for six months.
