Cold weather should be expected these days, but the morning bite still surprised some that gathered outside a bodega on Gerard Avenue this morning.
“It feels like winter is just about here,” said Jon from Highbridge. “I knew it was heading in our direction, but I didn’t think it would get here this fast.”
“Well,” someone said. “It is December after all.”
“Is it really?” Jon laughed. “That kinda snuck up on me. But at least it means we are finally getting somewhere. First the holidays and then the New Year and then baseball will be on top of us again.”
“It seems like baseball stays on top of us,” someone said. “There is trade talk every day.”
“But that’s just talk,” Jon scoffed. “I’m ready to play.”
