Baby, it’s Brick Outside

Welcome to Brick City (all due respect to Newark). You know, these warm winters spoil us when it gets cold…in January…you know, like it’s supposed to…

Which isn’t to say that I’m thrilled with how brick it’s been this week. I moan more than most–just ask The Wife. But last night, as I was leaving work, I got some bright news. The sky. It was lighter than it’d been, even just a day earlier. Which means, no matter how cold it is now, in the middle of winter, the days are starting to get longer. Soon enough–less than three weeks in fact, pitchers and catchers report, and the spring and the summer will follow.

And then we can bitch about the heat.

yeah i noticed the other day that it was 5 something and it wasn't pitch dark.
didn't seem quite as cold this morning - not sure if i am adjusting or it just wasn't as windy. but this week has been brick.

That's funny. Several people I spoke with this morning swear today is the coldest day yet.

haha who knows. i thought yesterday afternoon was cold as hell and my man thought it wasn't that bad.
i think part of it is what you expect versus what you feel. plus really whether you avoid the heavy wind periods.

I said the same to a co-worker about how we'll be complaining about the heat soon enough - so true! But I do look forward to those 'not too hot, not too cold' spring days ahead!

11Celcius here, and sunny. :)
But we'll be dying when it's 38C with 90% humidity and smog in the summer.

Just when you thought you heard it all...

Carl Pavano slipped in his driveway while shoveling snow, and ruptured his spleen.
