Let me just tell you that i have never experienced that kind of cold. Literally...it was bone chilling. I have been to some pretty cold places in my life. I spent three months in eastern europe in the dead of winter so i thought i was pretty well prepared...but holy fuck i certainly was not.
I felt like there was no way to get warm. I was wearing every coat that I own at the same time and I was still freezing. I was literally taking taxis to just go one block!!! So it was basically costing me an additional $5.00 just to go one block away and get a coffee. It was insane.
And now on Sunday I am heading to Palm Springs for a few days. From one extreme to another!
