Perfection is Possible (?)

No longer often enough, but sometimes it snows in November. When it does, New York becomes a dream City for some – or a nightmare, depending on your standpoint (e.g. having to cross the city by car; the lady with the suitcase had just got off a barely moving cab, sure she would make it to destination faster on foot).
