Default I donít care what some of you think....

but 1 degree Fahrenheit is cold. I went outside this morning to get some firewood without checking the temperature. I was pretty bundled up but immediately felt a penetrating cold. Never felt a cold like that. Came in and looked at the thermometer and it was registering 1. You Canucks, Minnesotans and Wisconsinites might scoff but we ain’t used this down here in Virginia. Here’s what I ended up looking like:

It was -6*F here last night, but I'm a tad North of you.
I can handle cold weather after becoming acclimated to it over time.
But I can't take -25*F wind chill for the last 2 1/2 weeks like we've had here this year.
This is just crazy cold.
Your secrets are safe with me.
There's a good chance I wasn't listening anyway.

Pretty chilly here in Maine as well last night--all sorts of new temperature records. Up to a relatively balmy -3 F right now.

It is sunny and 58 here, to me that's cold. (Sorry) Next week we should be back into the 70-80's. (Sorry) We suffer in the summer ....

Looked at the temp here near Indy and saw 19. That is the warmest it has been in a while! Oldest brother lived in Pensacola before he passed. Loved the snow they got there every 5 or 6 years. Made money to supplement his Naval retirement driving people around town. Lol.

Whats the humidity like in those really cold areas? Down south here in the US the cold is usually pretty damp and will make you feel like icewater. Top that off with the scarcity of good cold weather clothes, most folks closets are full of cotton blends to help with heat and humidity. The local Wal Mart rarely has good longjohns.
