New England gets cold. The kind of cold that doesn't allow for uncovered body parts of any type, the kind of cold that makes you pay thousands of dollars for a week-end of warmth, and the kind of cold that gives you bragging rights (at least to your Texas clan.) Your pipes, car locks, and metal mailboxes can freeze up solid. You can't run for fear of the black ice and you can't quite skate on the pond for fear of thin ice. Still, you can take a quick walk, look across the pond and see the little green shed. It kind of sparkles against the backdrop of dark gray.
New England gets cold but we learn what do. Go out and find a little green shed, it will warm you right up.
