Chilly scene of winter

very chill

Most respond to winter by covering up more. Then there are those who favor mini skirts and drinks on ice.

sales are on

It’s been very cold out, but the stores are having big sales. The solution: bundling up and hitting the stores. The urge to shop trumps staying warm.

clean streets

No school or work on Friday. The trade-off was extreme cold; many people didn’t leave the house all day. That’s why the snow still looked fresh and new in the afternoon.
