It's so cold here in DC that the politicians have their hands in their own pockets!

    It's all of three here.

    For those of you who deal with this cold regularly, do kids stand at the bus stop? They are cautioning on the news about the kids bundling up and how quickly frostbite can set in. I don't know how you folks in Canada/Alaska do it!

    I just can't help but think of all the dumb teenagers I saw yesterday with only a sweatshirt on! It was just as cold yesterday morning.

    I have fun memories of girls who came to the bus stop with wet hair and having it freeze! :laughing6:

    Lmao at the girls with frozen hair. No spray or gel needed honey, gives a perfect hold. :D

    I saw a girl wearing only leggings and a sweater dress. i have seen several girl looking real cute with their mini dresses/skirts, stylish jackets, and cute shoes that offer no warmth. They look reeeal cute, but effen hilarious shivering and trying to stay warm by blowing in their gloveless hands.

    It's warmed up to 20F this afternoon... it was 7F when I left for work this morning. Really made waiting for the train fun.
    I haven't got the slightest idea how to change people, but I still keep a long list of prospective candidates just in case I should ever figure it out.

    It is so cold that I was on my way to harass my old teacher who STILL hasn't changed my grade (even though she told me she did. LIAR) but I couldn't feel my hands or nose, so I called it quits. BUT I WILL BE BACK...with gloves and a scarf.

    I have experienced it. I have had to travel to both Utah and Toronto in winter, but I am sure I glad I don't live in either place in the winter time. BRRRRR!!!!

    I don't remember being cold for most of my teenage years. I think the goofy must have kept me warm. When I was even younger, we all wore snowsuits!

    I sure feel it now, though, as do the dogs. The thing about my foster girl is that she's built like a fire hydrant, so picking her up when her paws freeze is like deadweight. I've had to resort to just pulling out snow, rubbing them, and then trying to breathe warm air on the pads.

    I don't understand -36 degree weather. Stupid question, but is it even safe to be out for long periods of time(such as waiting for a bus) in that weather?
    Can't you die from that weather?

    I guess it's not stupid if you haven't experienced it. But no... We still go to school and work and shopping and etc etc etc.
    We just bundle up!
    That's why I laugh when I hear people complain about 7, 10, -2 etc.
    I mean I get that for THOSE people it's cold, but around here we'd be in a light jacket. If it goes to -2 we don't even zip our coats up LOL. In winter months anyways. It gets to +30 etc in the summer here (What is that, 95ish degrees F?) But yea, our winters are cold!

    I mentioned it in the Say It thread, but I didn't have heat at the beginning of this cold, cold week. Worst timing ever. It was miserable.

    I will never take indoor heating for granted again.

    LOL yea. I've been wearing a sweater and heavy puffy jacket and thick scarf around my neck and ears for the 30s and winds. Just for a 4 block walk from my office to car. There are lots of tall buildings so no sun.

    The other day I felt so bad i contemplated wearing hose next time under my jeans. I've never done that in Atlanta. I remember the only time I did that was in dc and in nyc. The lowest I have ever been in is about 2 degree weather. I can't imagine -20s. I really can't. The thought of it is making me nervous.

    It really irks me when northerners down here try to tell ME it's not cold when it's in the 40s and I shouldn't feel that cold. It may not be cold to you but it's still cold for the south, which is where you are!

    it's so cold outside that there are very few people on the streets.

    this is a good thing when you get off the bus from your shopping trip and you have to walk 4 blocks to your house and Gladys Knight comes on your iPod.

    then you can sing along at the top of your lungs, pretending you're on the stage in Vegas and no one looks at you like you're insane!

    I guess everyone has their own interpretation of what standard weather is. I must say though I much rather deal with cold then sweltering in the summer. No bueno. I am a miserable slug when it is hot and humid.
