Word Of The Day: Algid

Here's a new one, or at least a word new to the "C&C" staff. It describes very well life out on 57th Street in Manhattan. (With wind chill, it feels like it's 19 degrees.)
algid(AL-jid) adj. cold; chilly.
Origin: 1620–30; from the Latin , meaning cold. Related forms: algidity, algidness, noun.

Don't forget your hat, because it's algid outside.
