It is SO fucking COLD OUT!
Earlier today I was outside wearing a t-shirt. The fucking heat just came on in the house. It's absurdly cold in my room, as the heat vents don't properly work in here.

I'll be okay though. I just heated up some sake. Sake cures all.

2. It's not too bad now.
But I heard tomm. night, it's going to be freezing.
I was at a football game all night and I don't think I even needed to wear my hooded sweatshirt.

:hi:

yikes, is NYC really on the verge of snow? I'm up work-visiting in Boston, and hasn't been bad at all, rather nice and warm mostly.
Y'mean I'm gonna come back home to freakin' SNOW?
:scared:

edit: assuming your NY is that end-of-the-Hudson part...pls disregard if you're in the more northerly parts, and accept my condolences or warm wishes.

12. I'm pretty sure she lives upstate.
It's supposed to be 50 by me tommorow and it's usually about 10 degrees colder here, than in NYC. No mention of snow either, just sun.

16. Yabut...
It does get cold here. It's supposed to be a low in the 30s on Saturday night. I know from experience that it gets FUCKING cold here in the winter. Some years it gets below zero, other years the lowest low gets into the teens. Granted, it's not like living in the Northeast or the Plains, but it can still get fargin' cold...

We definitely don't get as much snow as youse guys, but it can happen. :P

18. Well, you don't have the consistent fucking cold out temperatures.
I hear you guys don't know how to drive when you see a snow flake either.

20. I can drive just fine in the snow, thank you very much...
:rofl: It's the other jagoffs who lose their freakin' minds when there is even a hint of a flake. :rofl: They either drive too fast and skid off the road into a ditch, or they drive incredibly slow and are very nervous about it.

22. I was thinking that.
You southern folk have got all the snow the last few years too. Up here we have a saying, "Global warming is our friend." Maybe it's true! Methinks you need to find somebody to warm you up :evilgrin:

23. It's getting pretty chilly here too in Florida.
Edited on Thu Oct-12-06 11:24 PM by SlavesandBulldozers
74 degrees right now. Once it hits the high 60's though I have to get bundled up.

I was in Chicago last winter and uh. . . no. Just no.

You guys sound like my northern relatives who come down here and jump in pools in November. ya know break out the flip-flops and everything. Though some of them bust out the sandals and socks lol. . . northerners. . . sigh.

I just need to think positively about it.

35. Nah, not really.
Feels that way a bit because it has been so cold lately (and when I say cold I mean some days did not even get to 80 F).

There are some spots that are hot though - for instance the latest 660 hectare fire would be pretty warm.

They flat out tell us to stay inside when it hits like 95F.

43. Last summer it got to 120 F in our shadehouse.
That's right - in the shadehouse. It was hotter outside, and what's more the roof was hot enough to literally fry an egg. :)

40. Way too fucking many.
My parents are heading up to CT to shut up our cabin for winter and get the boats on land. I thought about heading up there for a last day of fishing, but I'll probably just freeze my ass off and I'd rather go apple picking with lesbians.

42. Yeah, the cabin doesn't have heat or insulation either.
It was a very easy decision, especially since two of the lesbians are very hot (albeit together).
