Down here in Florida the old people and true Florida natives
break out ski parkas whenever the temp dips below 60s…
Jimmy does have a point (and the temp at my house right now is 28 and this is the heat of the day for us): it is what you are used to. If you have only lived in the LA area and have not traveled during the winter, then 27 to 45 can be really cold for you.
Heck, here in the Chicago area the first few days of sub-freezing temperatures feel really cold–by spring when we get up to freezing (32) on a regular basis, it feels warm.
It is still funny listening to them, though.
In the defense of the inmates of the land of fruits and nuts, I would bet that a good many homes there do not have central heat.
Tim appears to be right – it’s what you’re used to. One winter we were visiting Bermuda, and the temp “dipped” down to about 72. We went swimming in the bay and a couple of Bermudans, walking by in their winter woolies, stopped to watch us. When we got out one of them grimaced and said “You must be Canadian.”
According to accuweather.com, the forecast for Fargo, North Dakota for Sunday, January 20, 2013: High -13°, Low -31°.
Yes, that’s negative 31 degrees. Add in some wind and we get RealFeel® -44°.
Cry me a fricken’ river, L.A.
Remind me again why people continue to live in Fargo…B-r-r-r
The cold keeps the riff-raff out. But yeah… every winter, Fargoans threaten to move to the tropics. Never happens. Ever.
I can handle the cold, whatever it is (northern Canada) but I will melt in hot temps and I whine just as much. I would need more beer all the time. 🙂
It’s what you are used to.
See? I told you guys how cold it was here in SoCal. It was in the 70s today, but still below 50 at night. For us, that’s cold. And FYI, I grew up in New York, Connecticut, Massachusetts, New Hampshire and Wisconsin (we moved a lot–came to SoCal when I was 12).
I can usually put on enough to keep warm, but in hot weather, I cannot take off enough to get cool.
if you take enough off they will take you some place with ac.
