Re: How cold is it where you are? It's so cold that...
A few years back I ran a trail race in January. It was a 5 mile race with a mile stretch around a lake. It was about 4 degrees with high winds. Wind chill was around 15 below. The guy who won the race wore running shorts. I figured he had to win just to get out of the cold faster.
I've been to dinner at Jimmy Buffet's house, and I've eaten it at a homeless shelter. And there's great joy and harrowing terror to be found in both places.
