Sure we get cool. I've seen it drop into the teens here in Dallas.
Today was in the upper 90s and its still in the upper 80s at 9:00 P.M.
A buddy came by with an extra large bottle of NEWCASTLE BROWN ALE for me to cool things off.
I'll probably start cooking chili again in mid Oct.

It gets downright cold where I live(about 30 miles north of BrotherBob)We actually had frost one morning a few years back on the weekend that winter hit.

Yep I remember that year, lost all of the citrus and darn near went into a state of emergency.

Actually it does get into the 40s and sometimes into the 30s, but things warm up to at least the 70s by noon....regardless of how cold things get in the early morning.

The chilliest I recall it hitting here in Melbourne was 28.

What surprized me was how cold it felt.

(Maybe it's age) Cause the coldest I recall riding the motorcycle to work up north was -9F and the coldest on the bicycle was -11F and it didn't seem all that bad at the time

The coldest I recall here is with a wind chill of - 75 degrees.It was back in 1982.Now that was no fun at all.

FM, I do believe 28 degrees was the low temp during the night prior to the Challenger disaster back in January of '86. I never will forget watching that from my home in east Orlando that day, not a cloud in the sky. Hard to believe it's been that long now.

Riding a bicycle at -11F is no chore. Riding a motorcycle at -9F was a little less comfortable cause I couldn't wear any eye protection due to frosting up and not being able to see well! Since nothing froze up and fell off, I suspect it was something warmer than -75F, but it was an interesting ride nontheless

I'd have ridden cooler, but that's as cold as it got!

At -75 wind chill, my CAR wouldn't have even started!!

The record cold temp here in Cleveland was something like -20 degrees F. The record high is 104 degrees F. I was around for both of those. That's a 124 degree swing. Jeez, are we humans a hardy breed, or WHAT?
