It's 27 fricking degrees out, and I am cold

See, I knew there was an upside to not getting the job in Frozen Tundra country, it just took me a month to realize it. The concept that there’s a temperature below which it is too cold to snow, and that people in Wisconsin have empirical evidence of this fact, is truly frightening to me.

27? Fahrenheit?

It gets that cold here for a few hours every year. I feel your pain.


In late January of my first winter in Chicago, I was ecstatic to hear that the next week’s highs would be in the mid- to low-20s. I don’t remember if it every got as piping hot as 27, though.


There are two sides to that. When I first moved to Mississippi (in late July / early August 1994) from the Virginia mountains, I thought I was going to physically melt…I enjoyed wearing shorts all winter, though.

After a few years of getting tougher to the heat and more of a wuss to the cold…the SC winter is now freezing the ol’ doo-dads!


If you can’t stand the heat….Well….

Actually, in Wisconsin, on the first forty degree day in spring, you see the shorts come out on college campuses. Particularly after cold winters.
