Some days, the wind blows in off the Hudson, through your coat, through your fluffy cardigan that looks as though itâ€™s been made from the skins of Abominable Snowmen, through your thermals, through your skin, and straight to your bones.
The cold freezes your spirit. The world is gray. Your socks get damp and stay damp. There is no hope.
This is soup for days like that.
