    Being now in NYC for 18 years, I have not seen a winter so brutal as this one has so far been. The ice and snow now are not melting away as most New Yorkers are accustomed to. As a result, parking is virtually impossible and people are losing their patients more easily than before. But, thank God for hot chocolate!! Many of us New Yorkers dear not venture out after a certain hour not for safety fear but rather, we do not want to give up our parking space. Be it in the morning or late in the evening, a good hot chocolate on a cold New York City evening is calming and soothing and helps to get you through a cold and difficult winter.
