Medium Cool

:: It’s 17C in the Big City, and I just returned from having coffee and reading the NYTimes Magazine. Wearing denim short pants and a t-shirt, I drove home with the window rolled down in my car. This is the last evening I’ll be able to dress so casually and lightly for months to come – the temperature will begin dropping tomorrow until it reaches -21C on Sunday night. Cruel is a word that comes to mind. The forecast high for Hallowe’en is -11C, with light snow expected. Not fair, not fair at all, especially to the ghosts and goblins who will be out and about that night.

:: And people wonder why I’d like to live in NYC. 😉

    Nah, Fi, you’d be fine. 10C is balmy! The forecast has been revised, it won’t be as cold later in the week, as I wrote yesterday, thank God!

    Hallowe’en … high of -11, low of -22 … typical. I don’t think I can remember any Hallowe’en when it wasn’t hideously cold. And of course it’s snowing now. To think it was 55F and sunny just yesterday at the lake. Sigh…
