Hmm, lately we've been shedding our coats and celebrating, when it goes up to 32.

Try being here when the temperature is in the low teens or even below zero. That is what we face here in Western New York every winter. Ya just gotta love it.

Just because the rest of YOU people CHOOSE to live where the weather drops to obscene temperatures, don't give us SMART people a hard time when we don't enjoy the fact the temperature of the air is low enough to crystallize water molecules!!!! That's NORMAL!!!!!

I am with you Rita!!! I love my wood stoce, and anything warm for this half of the year! although compared to most of the winter, 32 is ok. Much better than 8!!!!!

If it is cold , add layers.LOOSE LAYERS. Watch what the locals do, and maybe add another layer, because your body isn't acclimated yet.Cover your extremities- head hands feet- because that is where the most heat loss is. Movement also helps.

Locals survive cold weather by dressing for it.Their physiology isn't that different, with perhaps one exception. I took an overnight open truck ride once from Puno to the Bolivian border ~ 10-11,000 feet. I was dressed very warmly,lot of layers, but was too cold to sleep. Locals didn't appear much more layered than I was, but they were snoring away. Different physiology.

The people who complain the most about hot weather usually stay inside in the AC all the time. Similar for cold weather.
