Those living on the East Coast or the Mid-West of America will roll their eyes when I say it was freezing yesterday. The high was probably around 55 degrees (F) or so.
I went to college in Upstate New York where 55 degrees was practically shorts weather. Sometimes it was so cold, my eyelids would be frozen shut after walking across campus to class.
Now I’m complaining about temperatures in the high 50s. What the heck is going on?
Perhaps living in Southern California made me soft. After ten years my tolerance for cold weather has dropped.
I don’t have enough winter clothes and I’m too broke to buy some. Hopefully by the big February sales my bank account will be healthier. However, I might break down and get warmer workout gear. I went to the park the other day and froze my butt off. I saw joggers in shorts and thought they were pazzi, crazy. Yes the sun was shining but it was 8:30 in the morning and cold.
One benefit of the colder weather is there are fewer drunk American exchange students walking down my small side street yelling at 3:00 a.m. in the morning.
