How cold is it where you are?

In various parts of the United States and Canada, really frigid weather has brought about really cold temperatures. How cold is it where you are and how are you doing? I'll start.

PORTLAND, ME USA: When last I checked, it was 4 degrees farenheight above zero. Cold enough to make hot coffee freeze in the cup. I'm doing fine in a warm apartment but I'm going out only if I have to.

How about you, fellow Foosters?

Who knows, I go into denial and lose track as soon as it sustains below 80. Which is most of my year, here.

Yesterday it was 12 when I rode to work. Now it's 65. This is how our winters go here, and probably why everyone here is always sick (I'm sick right now, in fact).

Currently 38 degrees and since I've been ridin' in -25, I'm about ready to ride home from work naked. Anything above freezing reminds me of Fiji about now.
