I am starting to suspect that my introduction into the world on such a turbulent day has played a part in a lifelong obsession I've had with extremely cold weather. Or, it could be my 365-days-a-year, sun-filled Southern California upbringing that has made me envious of those who have had the pleasure of having actual justified use for wearing thick coats and gloves, of waking up in the morning to a city completely covered in snow or turning on a fireplace because they're actually cold and not just for, you know, an 'experience.'

Meanwhile, friends who had spent winters trying to thaw ice crystals off their eyelashes could not comprehend my obsession.
