+1, I wish it just stay in the 70s~80s forever...
There's a name for weather like that. It's called San Diego.
It is also called continental Europe.
Continental Europe is constantly between 70-80F? Learn something new every day.
I don't think I have been on a Metro North train that kept to the printed schedule in a full calendar year. What the hell has happened to this system? It used to be great. On time every day, every train. This was not that long ago, either. Within the last five years it has fallen apart.
I know, I know. "Budget cuts." OK, so have they done anything to reform the absurd pension and pay system?
Now, now, that's crazy talk! Much more sensible to cut service.
It's that time of year where the D is warm and then you transfer to the R and it's frigid. I hate the subway.
They have tone down air con. across the board, I remember back in 07, the 6th train is always FREEZING in the summer
Whatever. I'd rather it be freezing than be sweating my ass off crammed in there on the morning commute.
I was recently in Prague. This would have been news to the folks there as well.
I find for some reason the older trains are always coldest.
It's all that nice asbestos providing insulation.
Metro North trains are MUCH warmer than they used to be. I have talked to several people about this and they all agree. They have not cut the air outright, but they have turned down the juice enough so that the cars are always uncomfortable. Better than outside, but not much. I take off my jacket and undo my tie for the ride home and I still sweat on the train.
I sweat in linen, I sweat in wool when it's the dead of January. Always overheated.
Linen is warm wearing. It's cooling abilities lay in its ability to absorb a lot of moisture making you seemingly sweat less.
