    Very cold

    So I went for a short hike today. I ended up with snot/breath cycles hanging from my facial hair. It was about 4 degrees fahrenheit.

    I used to live for a time about an hour west of Winnipeg.

    When we first moved there I noticed short posts with plugs next to the parking lot of the Canadian Tire store.
    Me: "What are those for?"
    Him: "So you can plug in your car, if you're going to be in the store for a long time."

    Watching the news:
    Reporter: "The frostbite warning is 90 seconds today..."
    Me: "What does that mean?"
    Him: "It means that exposed skin freezes in 90 seconds."
    Me: "oh"

    A wee bit south, but no warmer... 3 degrees F tonight.

    I ate breakfast on my patio in shorts and a tank top today. Free Vitamin D treatment.

    Sorry, couldn't help myself. Just had to rub it in.

    Yeah, but we get free cold thermogenesis... Makes us tougher. Those pampered SoCal types would probably catch the flu and die first hard winter out.

    We can get free CT anytime we want too. It's called surfing without a wetsuit in the Pacific any time other than August. Brrrr.

    But yes, SoCal peeps are spoiled rotten and proud of it. We start whining about a Heat Wave when it gets over 80 and breaking out the ski long johns if it gets under 60. Being a weather forecaster in SoCal has got to be the easiest gig ever.

    I know exactly what you mean! I think I'm braver than most in SoCal going around in winter in shorts, but I start whimpering when it dips below 50. Have you watched this clip?
