As a gal who grew up in a place where school closed when nary a flake fell but but winds blew so cold you'd lose a nose if you waited for the bus for more than five minutes, it seems mighty wimpy that all us New Yorkers are crying over the mid-20s, but it's icy and blistering out there! We're used to light windbreakers and lunch outside on Dec. 31! But perhaps it's time to get out the mid-50s speedsters and grab our skis. Yes. I think it is.
