Cold Snap

A cold snap is what old folks call it when the weather is really cold for a prolonged period of time. Younger people usually say that it’s cold as Hell, even though that doesn’t make any sense if you think about it. San Francisco is in the middle of a cold snap right now, and even though it’s not technically freezing, it’s still colder than anyone would like it to be. An unfortunate few have succumbed to the cold. The cold weather is an annoyance to some, but it’s a life or death situation for a lot of homeless people. We are lucky enough to be able to turn on the heater or put on another sweater. Some people don’t have that option. Don’t take that shit for granted.

Seeing Your Breath

On really cold days you can see your breath when you exhale. It’s nature’s way of telling you to put on a jacket. When you were a kid you would pretend like you were smoking a cigarette when you saw your breath. Now you want to get coffee or hot chocolate when you see it. That’s how you know you’re growing up and maturing. There’s something poetic about being bundled up, completely warm and snug, and seeing your breath without feeling the cold. You have to appreciate the little things in life.
