It's funny how everything is truly relative. To me, it isn't bitter cold until the skin on my forehead hurts when I step outside. That's around -10, or 5 with a wind chill, and below. Nippy is from about 10 to 5 degrees. From 15 on up, I don't really feel the cold. And when the news comentators suggest that 38 degrees is dangeously cold, well, I've swam in water colder than that, mind you, not for very long.
I really know its cold out when the snow crunches loudly under foot, and I feel a sharp sensation in my nose when I breath in.
My wife on the other hand, well she's bitterly cold at anything below about 45 degrees.
By the way, it's about 2 degrees here in Sault Ste. Marie.
