I've heard (don't shoot the messenger!) that our topiaries are dead from the cold. We are hopeful that they will come back.

Dee come on up!! It has been a warm winter here in Alaska, in the 40's the last few days. We usually don't see tempertures like that until May, this is just a trick of Mother Nature we still have at least 2 more months of Winter. There is still a couple of feet of snow in the yard and the driveway is like a skating rink.

You can see how misinformed I am. I thought it was her right one, and in a brass bra!

In Pennsylvania its "A witch's left **** in a brass bra, in the middle of January". The reason for the reference to the left side is because it's over her cold, cold heart. The brass bra and January references are self explanatory.

Growing up in Nebraska it was "Colder than a well diggers a** in Idaho." In Alaska we just say "It's Alaska, Duh". But we are having a heatwave.

Default What is "cold" is relative.

I have lived in Florida since 1978. I have not experienced a "cold" day/week, et al in all that time. "Cool' days yes, "chilly" days yes. But cold days , hopefully never again.
I feel what "cold" means is all relative to where you moved from. Miami or West Palm, the Keys etc, yeah for you folks it might be "cold".
But at 44.4N by 69.7W, it ain't that "cold" BTW, that's the L/L for Augusta, ME. And that's there we lived after we moved from So. Chicago (20-30 below sometimes.)
Now I betcha if someone from Minot, ND or Aberdeen, SD were to put their two cents in, they could really tell you what cold weather is.
So +20-30 ain't so bad versus -20-40. Think how lucky you are to live here where it is "warm" in the winter.
"Cold" is all relative.

Neat bumper sticker. Went like this: "It's God's job to judge terrorists. Our job is to arrange the meeting!"

Be a gentleman, remove your hat/cap when entering a building and dining out!

I have lived in Boca Raton (south florida) for almost 24 years. We've had more cold days under 60 high this winter than the other 23 winters combined.

Come on Global Warming!
