it's so cold the ground has frozen. i had to bundle up to go out and still the only part of me that was warm was under a hat made by my slightly deranged grandmother. no one else was around. when i was a kid we lived someplace colder and i was known to build forts at forty below and ice skate on the standing water frozen over greenways. here the cold is damp and intolerable and i only go out to feel better.
