Was there ever a time without suffocating winds and frozen, death-trap sidewalks? If there was, I’m not sure I can remember. While the weather has proved pretty pathetic over the last week (and there’s no signs of recovery), what’s not pathetic is your weekend plans. Don’t let a few icicles stop you! Bohs in the snow and an excuse not to wear real clothes (only snow gear) await. Plus, yours truly is participating in the Polar Bear Plunge this weekend – so no excuses. Channel that Fro-Zen for the weekend.
