I don't really know what the temperature is in other parts of the country right now, but New York is bastardly cold. I just checked the current weather conditions, and apparently it's 19 degrees, but "feels like 3."
3 fucking degrees.
3 degrees is like mid-autumn in Alaska. There is a reason no one lives in MF-ing Alaska, and it's because it frequently achieves temperatures like 3 degrees. And of course, let's not forget: Sarah Palin is there too, personally slaughtering the entire reindeer population, gosh darnit.
