0 degree's, blowing nicely, windchill dipping to -23 degree's. House a cozy 61. Man, I live for mornings like this in the northeast. Have to work today so will need only 60 pounds of clothing to avoid the inevitable frostbite getting from house to car. Once in car it wonderful to feel the plush nylon seat covers over the frozen foam seat cores, and after a half drive to work the inside of the car will have warmed up into the low 40's. Once at work I will spend 8 hours discussing runny noses and diarrhea. You all are missing some real living by staying in the mono-seasonal environment of Florida. If interested will give you my house free and clear if you let me sleep in your carport. Let me know!! I effing hate winter.
At least your car seats aren't covered with the clear plastic covers my parents used in New England. I used to have to boil water and pour it over my carb bowl and fuel filter in the morning to get the car started! Brisk 45 here this morning, warming to 70 by afternoon. I'm done with winter already.
I must admit, I too have just about had it with this cold weather. Ran out of cold weather clothing already as I only own 2 pair of warm socks and 2 pair of sweat pants, 2 long sleeve t shirts. I refuse to buy anymore cold weather clothing. Scott, your life is truly miserable right now so come down here as soon as you can
Love many, trust few and always paddle your own canoe.
Same here Vivian, I've already done laundry twice. At least I vae 3 pair of socks but only 1 pair of sweat pants.. I've been wearing my leather bomber jacket, gloves and beanie hat when walking the dog in the mornings...
As far as switching places with any yamkees, NFW.

I have some new cold weather clothes! And I'm lovin' 'em! Sure did not think I would wear them down here though.
I went backpacking and flyfishing in the Smokies back at the end of October. Remember that first front that came through? I was warned to be prepared, so I got a new hi-tech packable goosedown jacket and some long undies and wool socks.
I left here and it was almost 80. The first morning up there we woke to 30! No bleep.
Ah... but the campfires felt great and the bourbon tasted even better!
