If I were to visualize a guy who would describe homeless people's efforts to stave off hypothermia as "ornaments of warmth" and "little islands of comfort," I would picture a guy who's lived on or near the Bowery since the late '60s and who has apparently never in all that time ventured across the water to Queens or Brooklyn.

I recall a similar tiff involving Nastasya Filippovna in Pskov, concerning the relative supremacy of Dostoyevsky vs. Tolstoy.
Mme. Filippovna, ever the mendacious ironist, had taken the part of Tolstoy. Of course, there was a wager involved; the winner would be entitled to bludgeon the other with an axe. However, once my positions were established and my triumph became manifest, Nastasya stole the last laugh by hurling herself beneath a passing train.
She was quite the minx. Or was it Minsk?

Because snow, particularly when it's well below freezing, isn't very wet.
