On the Spot

Which is more difficult: a hot, humid day, or a bitter cold one?

“They’re roughly the same. But on a cold day it’s simple: you just put on more clothes!” ~ Alvin Bell, Beacon

“Hot days are definitely a challenge. I cool down in the river or a lake or pool. I also put cabbage leaves on my head. Babe Ruth used to do that during baseball games. It pulls the heat out of your body.” ~ Georgia Christy, Cold Spring

“It’s much tougher to deal with the dead of winter in the Hudson Valley. I just stay by the fireplace all day, with hot tea. Nothing else.” ~ Jon Lilburne, Garrison
