This weekend I am going sledding and ice skating. I am very excited about this. I am very excited about the snow. The view from this 32nd floor window makes the snow look like small specs of white cotton.
Huge snow storms really bring humans in the city physically closer. Sure, we can choose to hole up in our apartments, however its the being outside, saying "pardon me", and taking turns on the little shovelled-out walkways that really forces us to interact and brush up against each other. I guess one could say the same thing about riding the subway.
Rain makes us annoyed. Sun makes us hot.
