    Here in New York, the sun only broke through the clouds last week — which means we've been deprived of our favorite warm-weather activities for a truly tragic eight months now. That's over half a year with no park naps, no bare legs, no rooftop sun-basking, and, perhaps most tragically, no vanilla Mr. Softee with rainbow sprinkles.
