You know it's icy cold when...: Matt's Memo

We live in Syracuse and Central New York. We eat winter for breakfast. This subzero chill doesn't phase us. We wrap up. We bundle up. We keep moving. This exceptionally cold weather should not be used as an excuse for not getting where you need to go. Bold talk, isn't it? Yet between you and me, it is awfully cold out there.

It's so cold you hear the snow crunch under your feet as you make your first step out the door. It's so cold your face tightens up in minutes limiting effective conversation. Wet hair freezes and who knows what happens with nose hair once it hits that below zero air.

We missed this weather last winter. It won't last for two long this time around either. Take a moment to enjoy the different environment. Not everyone gets to really feel winter like we do.
