You don’t need to be a Game of Thrones fan to know: Winter Is Coming. This week, Sixers across the country bonded over the big chill. Most lamented the cold front (“Acclimatization unlikely. Extreme cold warrants hibernation.”) and it’s early-to-the-party arrival (“And thus it begins. So-called ‘Wonderland.’”). And one Sixer held onto the light at the end of the (freezing) tunnel: provisions and simple comforts will get us through this arctic season (“Today I’m thankful for over-the-knee socks.”). —Caroline Goldstein
Least acclimated: “Words struggle to exit frigid fingertips.” —Ellis_Reyes
Best narrative arc: “Acclimatization unlikely. Extreme cold warrants hibernation.” —CanadaGoose
