Out in the Cold, on the Upper East Side

Madison Avenue Cold
Photo by myself on Madison Avenue, around 62nd Street on the Upper East Side.

It was really, really, really cold in New York on Monday. Above, the window of a coffee shop on Madison Avenue was completely fogged up.

The news predicted it would be 8 degrees Fahrenheit (-13 Celsius) on Monday. With the wind, it felt like negative 25 degrees (-32 Celsius)!

At the moment, people look like they're dressed more for Siberia than for New York City. Many folks are wearing hats with ear flaps, knee-length down parkas, huge fur hats, rubber boots, ear muffs, faux-fur trimmed hoods and gloves.

Bulldog and friends
Dogs are also geared up in down jackets. This adorable French Bulldog gave me the eyeball, Monday morning.

Boston Terrier in the snow
Rupert tolerated the snow and cold, on a recent romp in Prospect Park.

It's been a while since I've shared a photo of our dog, Rupert. I'm posting one here in honor of my friend Maria, in Madrid. Maria visited New York for the first time, last summer.

Brrr, that is very cold. The dogs don't seem to bother the cold. They look fashionable in their coats.

I love Rupert's coat. Do you know what brand it is. I'm in Canada, so hopefully I can find one here too.
