ruthless winter to come: dark side of the moon-lit earth
All Gallows’ Eve just passed with ghouls and ghosts asking for candy. It’s still autumn with its pumpkin pies and naked trees (https://christiannoob.wordpress.com/2010/10/all-hallows-eve-fun/). Nevertheless the temperature’s dropped to 43°F, but it feels like 36°F with the windshield factor (as of 2010/11/10 at 07:41). That’s a huge drop from 102°F this past summer (https://christiannoob.wordpress.com/2010/07/hell-on-earth-102f-nyc/). This is merely a preview of what this coming winter in NYC (at least, no idea about other areas on the US) could be like — ruthless, bitter and plainly life-threatening. Then again, I don’t think there’s any other place on earth that I’d rather be for winter with a cup of coffee in my cold hands looking out the window at the snow.
With this new low temperatures, many people started wearing heavy parkas and layered wool coats. Stupidly enough, I’m only wearing a two-layer nylon jacket since I forget to wear anything heavier. Besides since I just moved (https://christiannoob.wordpress.com/2010/11/moving/), I don’t even know where most of clothes are in the mess that I’ve got in the apartment that I’m still making sense of.
