Water temp is in the balmy low 60'sF and the air temps nice and warn -- 60's to 70F. Ocean water up here rarely gets above the low 50's. -- and 60's for the air temps! And that is in the summer!
    Yes you are right Vaughn about the germs being spread, my wife is a high school teacher and colds, flu are spread easily throw the class room. You would think students that age would use hankies or hold there hand to there mouth when sneezing.

    Try this scenerio:

    My triplets in three different school classes, their mom working full time in a hospital, and me at the university. It was amazing that we were usually healthy!

    But then one of the triplets would disappear under a counter, table, or whatever as soon as my back was turned -- and show up chewing gum. He built up a great immune system! But we did start buying him gum instead!!
    At least with LF landscape, a bad day of photography can still be a good day of exercise.

    Between all of you, you were in contact with enough variety, you probably developed antibodies pretty quickly to each others and your own. If you weren't overboard with cleaning stuff when they were young, their immune systems probably developed a decent ability to react properly.
    My mom was the substitute school nurse while my brother and I were in school and she got sick the first year, but never after that.

    It got above freezing here the other day - I thought it was summer! didn't zip the jacket, didn't wear gloves, it was great! It's back in the teens, but that's not too bad. It's only when it's windy that I can't deal - it does seem to be windier here, too. 'Course, the house is on the top of a hill, too. Wind has always bothered my lungs - I used to gasp and gulp when wind hit my face. I don't as much now, but it still bothers me.

    55°F! That is almost inhumane! Break out the parkas and thermal underwear! If it gets any colder the brass monkeys will have to come inside and dogs will refuse to go outside to relieve themselves! Oh the inhumanity!

    Today it's raining so hard in LA that I actually had to use my windshield wiper.
