This morning's NPR story on the New York transit strike grabbed my attention for a few reasons. I'm hopeful that it will be resolved soon because it's a rotten situation for everyone involved. And because I'll be there in four days.
Listening to the stories of New Yorkers walking 120+ blocks to work in "biting wind" and "bitter cold" left me slightly more grateful about my climate.
I may live in a cultural wasteland, but there is something to be said for wearing short sleeves and a light cardigan just a few days before Christmas. The downside: it has been so warm lately that Casey refuses to spoon with me at night.
Thanks for the map, Aaron.
