>From another list:

#About 11/2 years ago a coworker of mine used the word "brick" for cold
#as "in its really brick out" I of course corrected him with the word
#brisk but was assured that he did in fact mean brick. I also heard it
#this past winter and I was wondering if it was local to the NYC area?

Anyone ever hear this one? (I assume "11/2" means "one and a half".)
