My hats off to those of you up north
I'm in central Texas. It's 54 degrees and I'm freezing my tookus off. I have the thermostat set at 65, but damn I still feel cold. I don't do cold. If it ever gets bad enough I have to leave the country, I'm gonna have to head south. :D

Stay warm DUers!

6. My husband laughed at me this morning
I was putting on sweatpants and jackets just to take the trash bin to the end of the driveway. I'm sure I looked like I was heading into a blizzard.

Wimpy am I. :D

2. It was only a windchill of -28 last week
It needs to be colder for the trees.

3. This is why the north kicks the south's ass.
When you try to kick ours, all you hit is ice, and we don't feel a thing--we've long since frozen up.

:P :P

:hi:

7. I bow before your superior Ice strength
But just head down here in August. You'll melt and we'll wipe you up with a mop. :D

5. It probably doesn't help that you're none too far from the gulf
which means the cold is more humid than the cold here. So it feels colder.

That, and you're just used to it being warmer. :)
