It was cold out this morning. According to the news, the weather is the coldest its been in four years. So you can imagine I was kind of surprised when the L2 pulled over to service a stop and one of the men waiting in the shelter was dressed in khakis, a light blue shirt, and a satchel over his shoulder.
No coat. No hat. No scarf. No gloves.
He even let the other folks — the ones who were wearing coats, and hats, and scarves, and gloves — board the bus first.
When he got on, he didn’t appear to be shivering, or cold at all. It was like he was perfectly comfortable in the cold. A friend remarked, “In Mother Russia, winter endures you.”
