    I cannot relate to you people at all. I have never lived in such harsh climates and could never see myself doing so. I feel bad that you guys have to.

    Shoot, it was 34 degrees when i left the house this morning in the dark and I froze my butt off riding my bike to work. By the end of the twelve miles i could hardly feel my toes and fingers and I was wearing thick wool gloves.

    I left Rochester, NY to get away from that MINUS degree crap. lol

    All this talk of cold weather makes me think how venerable we really are. If we lost our power plants you guys would freeze to death in a matter of days (or hours for some of you.) You all have to move to AZ. :lol:
