Oh, you Southerners! I almost put on a jacket today because it was 18 (above) but the sun was shining so I didn't. I did have on a long sleeved sweatshirt though, especially when I cooked on the grill.

I hate being cold, though, so I have a roaring fire in the fireplace as we speak with my feet about 1 foot away from the flames. I'm still wearing the same sweatshirt, though!

I was born and raised in Texas, so the cold was a shock when I first moved here to Connecticut. Now I'm used to it and didn't wear a jacket this morning when it was 40-something outside, but that was with no wind. Any wind I've got a jacket on me tighter than Hannibal Lecter.

It was 24 this am, I grabbed a sweatshirt on my way out. I did have to scrape the frost of the window of the truck, which kind of sucked.

53? That's some good weather!


I like it cold more than hot. Ideal is high 60's but 30's and above don't bother me without a jacket.

Hell I've gone up to Mt. Good and gone snowboarding in a Tshirt and snow pants when it was mid 30's.

Hah, I'm originally from CT but now that I have lived in FL for the past 4 years, my blood has thinned so much that anything below 65 F is freezing.
