No, no, no… I only closed the windows when it got to be 65 inside and I got chilly while wearing my tee shirt, shorts and with bare feet. I almost had to pull out a pair of socks! :teehee:
Classes have been cancelled :cheering:
Once the Nor’easter went through, the winds started up the lake effect snow again. We cleared a foot of snow yesterday, and woke up to about another foot this morning. We are running out of places to put it.
As for all of you warm Floridians…I’ll gladly deal with the snow any day over the hurricanes you guys get in the fall!
Hmmn…Hurricanes or snow? Hurricanes or snow? :shrug:
I lived in Texas for 4 years…I gladly made the trade for my FREEZING cold Michigan winters (although by the end of January, I find myself seriously considering a mental exam! :teehee: ).
And you know what? If I really want to, I too could be walking around the house in shorts and a t-shirt.
Granted, my dh would freak out over the heating bill, but I could still do it!!!
Cateknits - riding I definitely don’t dress as warm as I do when I’m just walking across campus. Well - now where I ride they have a heated indoor (I feel so spoiled, but its been single digits and at those temperatures, my fingers get cold even in my gloves, so I’m not going to complain about the temperature in there), but back when I didn’t have that luxery, I’d wear a T-shirt, a denim jacket, a sweatshirt, and jeans, and after warm-ups I’d take the sweatshirt off. That being at 20 degrees or so.
I certainly agree about the hurricanes; but those of us out here in the midwest have to deal with tornadoes instead. For most of my life, the sound of the tornado siren was the most terrifying sound I could think of.
Back when I was in college (Northern Iowa) and it was -10 and I had to walk to school, I remember thinking the worst thing in the world was when your nosehairs froze together. It hurt to breathe because you’d feel them crackling. Ugh. Luckily, it doesn’t get that cold here and I don’t have to walk 2 miles to school with the wind like no other!!!
I’m with Jan 65 = Sweater
BRRRRRR. The high here in Charlotte County was only 59 degrees!
I got to wear my Einstein Coat for the first time. I’ll get to wear it probably one day next year, too! :sun:
