Bundled Up, on the Ride Home

Q Train, NYC
Photo by myself, underground

The thing about winter in New York is that (obviously) people need to wear more clothing to combat the elements. The subway cars become cramped more quickly than in the warmer months.

Many of us in New York are suffering from the winter 'blahs'. This is caused by tromping through snow in the same big coats every day, and being stuffed in cramped airless spaces. Symptoms of the blahs include surliness, heavy sighs and eye-rolling.

And there is more snow in the forecast!!
