Today's cheap thrill on Long Island is that the cold snap is ending. We had temps in the single digits for the past 2 weeks. We are not used to this so it's all relative. Most of us middle classers have a decent winter coat and could attend an outdoor formal function without having to wear our ski parkas with dangling lift tickets.
For the next week, we can expect temps in the 30's. Normally that would be yukky, but we have something worse to compare that to, so bring on the damn 30's. I can finally go outside!
