I was talking to a man from West Africa today about how cold it is in the Mitten, and how they are expecting snow there (this was before I knew that we were expecting snow here).
He asked how cold it was in the Mitten, and I looked on my phone. "32 degrees," I said.
"Freezing!" he said. "So it's just as cold here as it is there."
I can see why it feels that way, when you come from the tropics.
It was 39 degrees here, and the sun was shining. I took off a layer because I got hot, walking.
It's almost like I'm used to this cold weather nonsense.
