"Inspecting every purchase as if it were my own".

Haha, that's pretty funny and some of it could even be confused with the facts. My husband certainly seems to be pretty much unaffected by the cold, so some of this must be true.

 Mirela, too funny and sooooooo true. One January I was in Orlando, FL. It was about 50F. The locals had heavy sweaters & jackets while I was in jean shorts and a shirt. They looked at me like I was from another planet. ;-)  Avoir un bon fin semaine.

Mirela,  This is great.  I've seen a similar one for Wyoming where my Mom lives.  I'm building a house for her in the mountains and last night it was -13F (-27F with wind chill).  I finally dug out a jacket. LOL

Mirela, I live about an hour and a half from the Canadian Boarder...we are brothers from another mother here in New Hampshire. We like to play golf when the ground is frozen you get a lot of extra roll out of the ball when it lands. Funny Stuff!!

Mirela, me being from Chicago and now in Alabama it's much like your chart.  Folks here are all bundled up around here when it's 50F...still shirt sleeve weather up north.
