at the moment its about 7 below. we do get a worse rap than we deserve though, any time people come here they expect there to be 2 feet of snow and whiteouts. really the worst stuff is lake effect that comes out of nowhere.

Hm...crazy weather, South Carolina has some crazy weather, we usually have snow/ice one week and the next week we're wearing shorts and short sleeves in January...and it starts getting coldish right around this time of year...it starts getting warmer around February...it always seems to be the warmest when I play paintball.

It's EL-NINO!!!! By the way..whatever happened to el-nino, I haven't heard that word used in forever...

pfft no one in here actually wears what they say they do as far as light gear in cold weather. myself however.. i work outside all day in construction (it was about 8 degrees today and i was in nothing but a monkey suit) so i can generate mad body heat, and therefore would overheat in a sweater at 30 degrees. last year, when i didnt work outside all day, i was like normal new englanders, wearing whatever is comfortable (IE more than they say they wear and less than the souternors by far)

its not a culture thing, its an adaptation thing. if youve been in the cold for a few weeks, youll adjust. just like if i were to go to florida right now i would be sweating my ass off and theyd be laughing at me

It's like 30-60 right now...

45 and down, I wear a jacket. Over that, just a long sleeve shirt. I was born and raised in Annapolis, so I have some cold intolerance. Maryland has hot summers like here, but they're winters are a lot colder.
