New York just got its first snow, which means if there’s a single activity you do that requires being outside–going from place to place, for example, traveling to point B and from point A, to cite another–then you have the pleasure of feeling like you’ve stepped into a Siberian prison camp whenever you need to perform simple tasks. Getting your mail. Going to the store. Fetching coffee. Talking your dog for a walk. Enjoying an electronic cigarette.

Either it really is that cold or my feeble Californian constitution has gotten the better of me, but a solid pair of gloves is really attractive right now.
