Don't ever play Tetris with a Reaper packer

40 f is shorts wearing weather around here. Even as low as 14 f I wear shortsleeves under my winter coat or I'll sweat to death. At 80 f I'm practically sweated down to base minerals and ready to pass out. 64 f with a nice breeze is just about perfect.

Absolutely! You can always put on another layer, but there is only so far that you can strip off any. I don't get out my heavy winter coat until it drops below 0°F

Dwarvenranger,

 

Yeah I would say it that is a relative perspective. As my wife and step-son hail from the Dallas/Ft Worth Area, and are now living in NE PA they are constantly reminding me how cold it is, when the temperatures are in the low 60's, and how it's freezing once the temperature dips below 50.

 

At which point I remind them that FREEZING doesn't occur until 32 and lower and that to me cold starts at 20, and really cold is defined as when you breathe in your runny noses freeze and then thaw when you exhale

. ::D:

 

If your nose thaws when you exhale, it's not really cold yet.

 

Really cold is when you have earmuffs, a hat holding the earmuffs on, a hood holding the hat on, and a scarf holding the hood on, with sunglasses to keep your eyelashes from freezing to the hat and scarf which are only a slit apart so you can see, and the sunglasses have to be outside the scarf or your breath will freeze on them.

There was a time when I could tell you the temperature within about a degree as long as it was no warmer than -10F (-23C). It's all about how fast your breath freezes in your mustache, how much the air hurts to breathe, what the snow sounds like underfoot....

 

If I'm sitting around outside in the dark (as you do), 20F is a bit cool and probably warrants a decent coat and hat. If I'm working, 20 is just a bit crisp.

I believe Cacti are an outrageous rural legend. Real plants have pinecones.

In real forests, the pinecones fall from the trees and land on the cacti.

 

In the snow.

 

 

Uphill.

 

 

 

Both ways.

Bah. Real trees have fronds! Or acidic fruit and thorns the length of my thumb! (Seriously, some lemon trees are vicious!)

Nope as stated above cold doesn't start until the red dips below 20.

 

I agree, below 20 degrees is on the chilly side.

Oh wait, did you mean Farenheit? Below 20 degrees Celsius is cold.

Bah real trees have sap so acidic it burns your skin but appears otherwise harmless. (Seriously one of the local species of mangos does just that.)

 

Its like real bees sting you to death rather than die when they sting you.
