What gives? The National Weather Service basically assured me that I’d be frolicking in a winter wonderland by now? Where are my winter flurries? Hello? Is anyone even listening?
Furthermore, I have been taunting nature all day, to no effect. I drank cold Coca Cola on a street corner just after sunrise. I walked around in a T-shirt while the rest of city bundled up against the low temperatures. I even went and bought two pints of gelato and ate it with my hands on what was supposed to be a severely cold day. And yet the sun came out, with no sign of snow on the horizon.
This is a major disappointment. If anyone needs me, I’ll be taking an ice bath until I either pass out or see some snowflakes.
