Heh. Just like all the other midwestern folks, it's been really cold here too the past two weeks. Lows below zero, highs struggling to get into the teens.
Where I live, we do often get 3,4,5,6+ inches of snow during a storm, but it'll usually melt within a week. And just like David, yeah, we've still got snow on the ground from Christmas.
Yesterday, with the impending snow storm, the temps rallied to the mid 20's. I went back to just a windbreaker for a coat.
I could take out the garbage again in just a t-shirt and jeans.
Next week it's supposed to hit 32 by Wednesday. Might have to put the top down on the convertible.
And no, I'm not really kidding.
Everyone adapts. You get used to the climate where you live. My northwoods-Wisconsin-living in-laws think anything above 80F is "really hot".
