In case you haven’t seen the news from the United States, we are in the middle of a polar vortex. Now I’m not sure exactly what that means except I know it means it’s been damn cold! Temperatures in New York City have hovered at around 5 degrees fahrenheit (-15 celsius) and the when the wind blows it goes even lower.
The southeastern US is not prepared for this – yesterday two inches of snow fell in Atlanta Georgia and stopped up traffic for hours…like a 30 minute drive took 8 hours. Whoa.
I drew the couple above while riding on the E train tonight. Even underground in the subway, people are huddling for warmth. Let’s hope we get some soon!!
