The cold can be painful. It can make an ordinary day, an otherwise great day, seem like something you should otherwise suffer through. People will talk about the cold, people will rehearse the lines you’ve heard a hundred times. But the cold is also generous, it forces a shift in perspective, offers another opportunity to look at things extraordinarily. Indeed there is something mystifying about the whiteness of snow, of ice and the mist that leaves as you exasperate.
And despite the cold, things still move along, just with a different bustle.
