Going down to 33F tomorrow according to weather channel, I can only dream, can't remember when it got down that low since some time last year I guess. Moved in 1998 to Harlingen, Texas, near the Gulf Coast and never missed Winter, Fall, or anything, moved an hour west to McAllen and after a year the "both ends of the candle burning" image burned itself into my mind ("Yes that's it, that's the problem, I see it now!"). Moved to Dallas area in 2002, was super cold first year for region and I was happy as a clam, but it's been lukewarm ever since, leaving me to long for winter. Maybe it's global warming or cyclical or whatever, one of the locals told me, "I used to make snow angels here when I was a child, you can't tell me things haven't changed."
Oh yeah the thread, listening to Live in Dublin by Bruce Springteen--fun stuff if you like folk music, IMO.
