That’s how cold it is. Ok, I lied. My MetroCard didn’t freeze, but I bet it could!
Everyone on the train or platform is either pissed or in shock at how cold it is. In reality, it is like this all winter. It just takes a couple weeks to adjust.
Anyway, people just look flustered. Everyone’s noses are bright red. People are walking insanely slow on the stairs because they have 14 layers on. That’s 14 layers on top of the large mass many of them carry around (aka their ass) every day.
As a matter of fact, I think people just stayed home today. The subway is pretty empty this morning. Is there another Jewish holiday that I am missing? Probably.
As a non-Jew, you don’t really notice how many Jewish people live in the city until a Jewish holiday rolls around. All of a sudden, you get to the subway in the morning, and it is only you and 3 other people waiting for the train. You immediately count the days and think, “Wait, is today Saturday?”
Live from the subway, back to you in studio…
