I climbed these stairs today on my way to get the Sunday paper. The temperature was 20 degrees when I left my apartment.
While paying for the paper I heard someone say "I don't want to walk anymore. I'm cold and I don't want to walk anymore." I looked up to see a well-dressed couple, presumably Columbia students on their way to church. "Well-dressed" is probably the wrong descriptor. The woman was wearing dressy heels to get around in the snow and slush. She was also wearing a short dress. No jacket, no sweater, no gloves, not even a scarf. I did not know what to make of that.
