    Temperature can be very deceptive

    So early this morning it felt cold out and an hour or so ago when I went for a walk the thermometer read mid 20's so I chose my heavy coat, gloves, Muck boots ( due to the ice on the road) and a light but warm face mask pulled only over the ears.
    When I returned the coat was unzipped and I was pushing it as open as I could with each step , and the gloves and hat were in the coat pockets. I then shoveled to regain the driveway edges from snow banks and got so hot I took the jacket off. And came in so hot I headed straight for the shower after giving myself a few minutes to stop sweating so much.
    On another day with clouds and wind, and a different humidity my garp might have been perfectly appropriate at the same temperature. We often rely too much on just one weather factor. I've been colder in a rain with wind in the high 50's.
    I should clarify that I have always been considered cold tolerant and heat intolerant even where I live. Then that skinny kid grew into a somewhat short , somewhat overweight man with a strong lower body. In other words I am shaped like an Eskimo. Still it's easier to take gloves and hats off then to not have them with you. Really shoulda worn the wind breaker or a pull over though.

    You are shaped like a woman. Only an Eskimo is shaped like an Eskimo. You're reported, you racist.

    The temperature is just one factor. You have rain, sunlight and wind to consider along with your level of activity. 45 degrees can feel pretty cold if it is rainy or even just cloudy with a high wind. But if it is a sunny day with little to no wind, 45 degrees is nice with jeans and a long t-shirt.

    A little rough. Pretty funny though.
    Liberals are a clear and present danger to our freedom and our society and our morals.

    Yea, but you're not like the rest of us. I bet the shorts and tee are a lie.

    Why would I lie about that? Seriously.

    Who pissed in your wheaties this morning?

    My high school kid doesn't own a pair of pants, he wears shorts year round. Shovels snow at the area church on Sunday mornings in shorts.

    It's how we roll.
