Winter Wonderland???!

Wind-chill stings, are you listenin'
On the lawns, snow is glistenin'
The "white stuff" last night
gave snowplows a fight
Walkin' to the subway ain't so grand

Gone away are the "snow-birds"
Here to stay are the work-birds
We're singin' no song
as we slip along
Walkin' to the subway ain't so grand

On the plus side, we still have the subways
Most NYC folks can get to work
I feel sorry for the car commuters
who skid on snowy roadways and get stuck :(

Bundled up, dressed in layers
Asked for heat, in my pray-ers
More snow's due next week--
no year for the weak :(
Walkin' to the subway ain't so grand

Winter Wonderland (Williams Brothers performance)
Original lyrics (with two extra verses that I've never heard sung)

April 8, 2015 update:

It turns out that the landlord of our new office follows the law to the letter--we get *no heat whatsoever* whenever the temperature rises above 40 degrees Fahrenheit. I haven't been in the habit of using a shawl, but I'll have to check at home to see whether I have one or two that I could bring in and leave. In the meantime, I'm huddling at my desk in a windbreaker. Very professional looking--not.

The 40 degrees business only applies to residential apts. If you're in an office, your boss was a very bad negotiator. (Or he doesn't care for you.) Does the landlord supply ac in the summer, or do you have your own units?
