Just back from an ab-fab Black Friday!! I trekked down Madison, elbowed myself through 5th and just managed to battle the crowds of Soho! Epuisant!
What surprises me most this Black Friday 2009, however, is not the size of the crowds (yes, still smaller than those of years past…), not the prices (I’m still an intern…what is cheap to some is a Swiss bank account to me!), but the weather!
I remember as a young New Yorker in early 90s (ahhh the days of green card freedom!) bundling up and freezing my but off watching the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade. I remember snow, frost, hot chocolates, mittens, scarves…It was cold!
This Thanksgiving, however, the weather is so pleasant…so warm…so abnormally and freakishly comfortable!
I am not one to venture into theories of Global Warming, the earth getting hotter…but this Black Friday 2009, it’s not the shopping, the crowds or the prices that are on my mind…but the sky, the earth... Mother Nature!
I now ponder…Should my next purchase be a bathing suit or UGG boots?!?
What do you girls think? How is weather in NOLA and LA this Thanksgiving?
