Even though Hunter College’s weather station pegs the current temperature at 63.1 degrees, and it’s sunny out and beautiful and it smells like the start of spring, and you can eat outside without even wearing a jacket, and people are jogging and walking their dogs and pushing babies in strollers, and the babies aren’t even bundled up to the point that none of their skin is exposed and they just look like a watermelon-shaped pile of knitted clothing, today is February 1, according to a calendar.
