The Positive Side of Winter Storms?

“It’s really only on days that are that cold or this snowy, but sometimes the whole city feels like it’s celebrating it’s resilience together. How often can you trade grimly proud smiles with strangers you run into in the safety of the grocery store or gas station, just because you were all virtuous and tough enough to make it to the store or gas station? You talk to more strangers at times like that. There is a sense that we’re all in this together.”

Jessica Abel  “Jack London” as quoted in (takes a deep breath) An Anthology of Graphic Fiction, Cartoons & True Stories Vol. 2 Edited by Ivan Brunetti (Yale University Press 2008)
