How cold is cold? Laughing

60 degrees – Californians put on sweaters

50 degrees – Miami residents turn on the heat

40 degrees – You can see your breath. Californians shiver uncontrollably
North Dakotans/Minnesotans go swimming

32 degrees - Water freezes

30 degrees - Plan your vacation to Australia

25 degrees - Boston water freezes
Californians weep pitiably
North Dakotans/Minnesotans eat ice cream
Canadians go swimming

20 degrees - New York water freezes
Miami residents plan vacations further South

15 degrees - Cat insists on sleeping in your bed with you

0 degrees - Alaskans put on T-Shirts

-10 degrees- Eyes freeze shut when you blink

-15 degrees- You can cut your breath and use it to build an igloo
Arkansans stick tongue on metal objects
Miami residents cease to exist

-20 degrees- Cat insists on sleeping in pajamas with you
North Dakotans/Minnesotans shovel snow off roof

-25 degrees- Too cold to think

-30 degrees- You plan a two week hot bath

-40 degrees- Californians disappear
North Dakotans/Minnesotans button top button
Canadians put on a sweater
Your car helps you plan your trip South

-50 degrees- Alaskans close the bathroom window

-80 degrees- Polar bears move South

Once while riding a Honolulu city bus, I saw Samoans wearing sweaters to survive the 80 degree weather. And a humid 80 degrees at that! So it's all in your perspective indeed!

Partially in your head but more like what you have just recently gotten used to.

in August if we get plus 5 C ( C for Canada) we are throwing on Jackets. In January after a week of -20 a day with -5 feels like a heatwave and we throw of our polar bear hides and wear the jacket we wore in August at +5.

brrrrrr - I know that's right!

The flip side of that is people in the desert trying to tell you the temps are not so bad cuz it's a dry heat! Trust me, when you walk out of an air conditioned building and it is over 108 or so - you feel that heat in your lungs. 105 not so much but as it goes up from there, you feel it. 118 is the most I have endured thus far when living in Nevada and it could kill you in short order whether a "dry" or 'wet' heat!

I had cans of Diet Pepsi explode in my car even with all the windows left open a crack. When it gets too hot to touch your steering wheel or pump gas without a glove - it is too darned hot!

Funny, we were just talking about how cold is too cold here today ... Tok, AK was -79F and I was teasing my daughter about moving there (she didn't think it was a funny joke).

It is all in your mind! Believe it or not there are still times when I miss the snowy Ohio winters I grew up in. Lately here in NC it has just been dreary!!! I don't like dreary.

It is true the snow is very welcome when it first arrives before Christmas , gets everyone in the mood for the season. But once Christmas is over and the colored lights on houses twinkle for the last time. The January deep freeze sets in and we still have snow here into April. By then you have had quite enough of the white stuff.

When I was in Camp Arifjan my first week I was standing outside
the mess hall at 500 AM waiting for the doors to open. I noticed
I was warm so I looked at the thermometer and it read 95 F at
it was still very dark!!!

Ohh the high that day was 140 F

But it was a dry heat!!!

Its been below zero for over a week now so I thought
I would share a warm weather story. The sad thing is
I never once complained about the heat when I was
in the Sand Box. Where I live outside fuel tanks have
to be a mix of oil and kerosene or it freezes (gels up)

I've always loved that phrase. So it feels like you are inside a kiln vs. inside a sauna.
Big deal. It's still hot.

After a week of -25 to -30F...with windchills upward of -50F...that's what I feel like.

I'm 9 days, and a wake up from lower, warmer latitudes...
(note to self: hide rope)

Pete that makes me think of one of my favorite Jimmy Buffet songs:

I took off for a weekend last month
Just to try and recall the whole year
All of the faces and all of the places
Wonderin where they all disappeared
I didnt ponder the question too long
I was hungry and went out for a bite
Ran into a chum with a bottle of rum
And we wound up drinkin all night

Chorus:
Its these changes in latitudes, changes in attitudes
Nothing remains quite the same
With all of our running and all of our cunning
If we couldnt laugh we would all go insane

Reading departure signs in some big airport
Reminds me of the places Ive been
Visions of good times that brought so much pleasure
Makes me want to go back again
If it suddenly ended tomorrow
I could somehow adjust to the fall
Good times and riches and son of a bitches
Ive seen more than I can recall

Chorus:
These changes in latitudes, changes in attitudes
Nothing remains quite the same
Through all of the islands and all of the highlands
If we couldnt laugh we would all go insane

I think about paris when Im high on red wine
I wish I could jump on a plane
So many nights I just dream of the ocean
God I wish I was sailin again
Oh, yesterdays over my shoulder
So I cant look back for too long
Theres just too much to see waiting in front of me
And I know that I just cant go wrong

Chorus:
With these changes in latitudes, changes in attitudes
Nothing remains quite the same
With all of my running and all of my cunning
If I couldnt laugh I just would go insane
If we couldnt laugh we just would go insane
If we werent all crazy we would go insane
