But, I grew up in much colder climes...the weather around here rarely makes me too cold, only if the wind is really blowing do I feel it.

The wind is back from the north again, so staying snug with windows closed. Inside temperature is 72 so no heating needed yet.

I grew up in Michigan, but have now lived in Virginia for more than half my life. I remember one Thanksgiving in Michigan with DH's family. We went out for a walk after dinner and my SIL wore a short-sleeved shirt and sweater vest while I got all bundled up. I also remember, when we first moved here, marveling at people wearing heavy coats when the temp was in the 50s. But now we're acclimated, too.

Well, back to regularly scheduled weather: -14C (8F), with wind chillies: -22C (-8F). It's cold and dry enough that snow is drifting like sand.

We got lucky and missed the freezing rain. In fact the regular rain stopped long enough that it got a chance to dry up and it's not horribly slippery out.

Quite a cool day again today, as it has been all week, but starting to heat up again from tomorrow

I generally stay very warm with a couple of layers as long as I have wool socks and the wind isn't blowing. Sometimes a hat is needed. One the temp gets to 0, then I consider a jacket and make sure I have hat and gloves.

Have not been out yet today but it seems warmer when letting the cats out. They say it's in the 20's, much warmer than it has been.
