It just a bit to close to be true.  Smiley

In Dallas, TX the threat of ice was enough to prevent people from coming to work.

We had a transplanted Californian complain in the local paper about how bad it was to drive on icy roads when it froze and shouldn't the city and highway department be doing something to reduce the danger.  Hate tho think what the lady thought when she woke up and saw the snow.

I remember when I was eighteen and doing odds and ends for an architect friend, We were working outside loading and un-loading burn victim beads into a warehouse he had built. It was windy and around 30F. Now our winters can get cold sometimes, and coupled with humid air we get "wet colds". I remember that day like it was yesterday, and it was nasty and cold, and I had a whole bunch of clothes on as well as most around me, except for this one guy....who was from Pitsburgh, who had on blue jeans and a short sleeve shirt. grin

How true this is. I hate the 40F/4C cold weather we get here in Florida. The humidity makes it a wet cold. And to me it feels colder than 12F/-11C that Salt Lake City has. Not that I am saying I love the cold in SLC.

I was in Breckenridge yrs ago on a skiing trip. We stayed with one of my dad's friends that lived way up on a mountain. The day we left there were icesickles hanging off of his roof and the thermometer read -11F, but it really just felt like it was in the 30's to me. Wet colds got bite!!!!

I worked up a sweat today.  The weather was partly cloudy so the sun was out some.  It had warmed up a bit from earlier in the weak, high today was 37 F.  Later in the afternoon the wind came up, that's when it starts to get cool, the sun is covered by clouds and the wind chill drops the temp to around 20 F.  I figure it's time to call it a day then.  Besides, with my health problems I can only putter for a few hours a day and the grandkids had gotten home from school.  Using tools around grade school aged or younger kids is not my thing.  Oh yeah, I only wear a vest.  I do wear a hat in the winter as you lose most of your body heat from the top of your head so wearing a hat is a good way to keep warm.

Wearing a hat in hot weather is a good way to go bald.  Almost everybody I know who wears a hat in the summer doesn't have any hair above the ears when they take their hat off.  LOL
