Humor on a Brisk Wisconsin day.

As we enjoy another brisk day in the office this week with occassional rounds to the rentals to thaw out a pipe or two my wife sent me this cute little cold weather comparison.

Amazingly the part attributed to Wisconsinites is not that far off on a few of the points.  We did actually go out to the garage and find our winter jackets this week, and yes when the temperatures hit the 50's in the spring you will find a few sunbathers up near campus.




Cold vs. Cold - Keep warm wherever you live!

60 above zero:
Floridians turn on the heat. People in Wisconsin plant gardens.

50 above zero:
Californians shiver uncontrollably. People in Eagle River sunbathe.

40 above zero:
Italian and European cars won't start. People in Wisconsin drive with the windows down

32 above zero:
Distilled water freezes. The water in Green Bay gets thicker.

20 above zero:
Floridians don coats, thermal underwear, gloves and wool hats. People in Wisconsin throw on a flannel shirt.

15 above zero:
New York landlords finally turn up the heat. People in Wisconsin have the last cookout before it gets cold.

People in Miami all die. Wisconsin people close the windows.

10 below zero:
Californians fly away to Mexico. People in Wisconsin get out their winter coats.

25 below zero:
Hollywood disintegrates. The Girl Scouts in Wisconsin are selling cookies door to door.

40 below zero:
Washington DC runs out of hot air. People in Wisconsin let the dogs sleep indoors.

100 below zero:
Santa Claus abandons the North Pole. Wisconsin people get upset because they can't start the mini-van.

400 below zero:
All atomic motion stops (absolute zero on the Kelvin scale)
Wisconsin public schools will start 2 hours late.


Have a great week, stay warm, and enjoy the winter fun.

Haha, very amusing comparisons. The truth is, though, that people in different areas do consider "cold" to be totally different.

Good morning Bob.  So the one I like the best is: 40 below zero:
Washington DC runs out of hot air. People in Wisconsin let the dogs sleep indoors.  Wouldn't it be nice to not have all that hot air coming from D.C. ?

Good morning Bob,

I have always liked this run on temperatures.

It is like the college swim team the other day practicing on the sidewalf of snow!

James Dray isn't that where global warming comes from?!!!!!

Make yourself an astonishing day.

Love this Bob.  And I can personally testify to the truth about what Floridians do at these temperatures.

Good morning Bob. This one definitely brings a chuckle. Having lived in South Florida and now returning to Chicago I can attest. The coats I saw in Florida at 60 are present in Chicago at temps below 20! Enjoy your day!

Great a very true analysis of the result of temperature ranges, particularly  the "40 above zero". I can't wait for the "40 below zero'. but then not likely to happen unless HELL freezes over.

Cracked me up!  There is definitely a difference in perception about what temperature really means "It's cold."  I'm from Florida, and turning on the heat at 60 is not an exaggeration.

Well Bob Crane It doesn't get to 10 below (not in my part anyway) in California. But if it did I would move further south.

Just a note to you: trees grow in tropical areas, too.

That is very funny.  I understand completely.  It was 20 degrees the other day and all that I grabbed was a down vest before I went running out of the house.  Who needs coats anyway?

LOL on the 400 below zero!  Those fun points work in MN as well. Whenever I go back in the winter time it still does surprise me to see folks walking around with their coats open and have just socks and sandals on (a few with shorts) - and it's  20 degrees!  And did you know you can tell a Northerner in Phoenix in January?  Just the other day while out hiking in high 40's (and locals are bundled up) a few guys were out there with shorts and no shirts.  All we said was - tourists from MN or you your case WI

Bob, It is all relative.  It is true I am "freezing" when it is 50 degrees.  The snow is a nice place to visit but I would not want to live there.

Bob, your neighbors to the west feel the same way...I cut a cord of wood today and it was not all that bad out.

That is a hoot. I smile seeing the ball games from up north and freezing temps with the fans looking like they don't feel a thing. Is it the beer?

I do enjoy this - it's pretty funny and parts are very true.  It has been a long time since we had school start two hours late.  But the girl scouts have been out day and night selling those cookies.

Thanks for the reminder that I believe that anything below 80 degrees is winter to me.
