Those from more Northerly climes are inclined to laugh.  They would be well advised to consider that Texans, as a general rule, don't equip for such weather, nor do their stores stock for same.

 

Stay safe out there!

Hope everyone warms up to reasonable temps soon.

 

Our most recent cold snap just broke and we're back up to 45* (but, looking at another winter storm this weekend).

 

The 10 day forecast looks pretty much the same for Boston as it does in St. Louis, though perhaps a touch warmer. ~sighs~ My first trip to the NE (aside from their airports) and it's not exactly the tourist-friendly weather I'd hoped for. :smileyfrustrated:

Lol, it always takes me a bit to realize you guys work with fahrenheit...

Where i live it's only just below freezing, haven't seen any snow this winter.
(well, not in my province anyway)

Wishing you all to have nice weather soon!

Good point. If you said it's a warm day at 28° and left out the "C", that would throw me off for a minute too....   :smileywink:

lol, oh, yeah, good point.

I feel good for my kids growing up in a 'multilingual' house. :smileywink: English and 'proper english', metric and imperial, and C & F. lol. Nice and well rounded.
