I should be able to hibernate till march

It was 60 something last night. Tonight is just 78f but it feels a lot lower. Yeah i know I know, I'm a cold temperature sisi. Wearing a jacket inside the house right now and still shivering. Need to get my hands on some electric blankets ASAP.

Learn how to knit and make your own afgans and you'll never be cold again.

Wear a hat, Rube...and some nice warm socks. You'll stay warmer if those two areas of your body are covered.

The Rube has a tropical tolerence of 75F-90F only.
About the same as an Amazon spotted tree frog.

He is doomed to live his lifespan within 200 miles of Wintergarden and only travel north in a sealed climate controlled 2001 Hyundai Accent.

October/Fall is an outstanding time of year here.Most look forward to this colorfull season with less oppresive heat during the day and cool evenings.

If your only outfit is tank tops and gym shorts you could be in trouble up here.

I feel your pain, brotha. I'm an Az native, myself, and I'm quite happy when it's 110F in the shade. I'm a certified wuss in the cold though, although my cold threshold seems to have dropped to about 60F, at least. For all those people who like to tell you how much a pansy you are, invite them for a century ride in August.
