    You get FOUR weeks of summer up in Monroe? We only get three in Shoreline.

    I am beginning to resent being referred to as 'half-fast'.
    Whatever that's supposed to mean.

    Ken, yes, exactly - it was sunny today and that made all the difference. I took the dogs out this morning and thought it seemed remarkably warm (no jacket, either, T-neck and sweatshirt, jeans, sneakers). Checked the thermometer when I came in and it was 3. But it was sunny! And not windy. It warmed up to a whopping 15F today, too.

    I agree, Truzi - you can always add layers to get warm - there's only so much that can come off to stay cool.

    In winter, I only get tired of cleaning snow off my car by about March (in New England anyway, no clue how IA will be) and that's usually right when it starts warming up. By the time it gets to be 80F, I'm wishing for that snow back.

    I saw one of those "You might be a New Englander if…" lists and it included something about scraping ice off your windshield in the morning and using the AC in the car later the same day. Yup, BTDT.

    I was born in Sitka, AK and the joke there is that the rainy season lasts from Jan 1 to Dec 31. Wellies (the boots) are called "Sitka Slippers" by my parents.

    ... that the L.A. Police and Politicians had their hands in their own pockets?

    Being a transplanted Brit, I still tend to think in Celsius. It is priceless to see the expression on people's faces when I forget to convert the temperature and say 'it's going to be below zero tonight'!
    I feel, therefore I photograph.

    Well maybe one day the rest of the world will progress and switch over to the American system of weights and measures.

    One thing we will never agree on.... I think the us system if measured is moronic and I can't wait till they switch... I don't know what we are waiting for it's so dumb... Why is freezing 32.... It should be 0.... And why do we work in initial base of 12 (or is it 16 for volume and only 12 for distance?) when we add in a 10 base system....

    Dumb dumb dunb...

    Naw, not THAT cold!
    I do use a digital device in my photographic pursuits when necessary.
    When someone rags on me for using film, I use a middle digit, upraised.

    That's OK, Stone ole' buddy. Let's compromise. When it's 50 degrees up there in Connecticut, you take your shirt off and wipe your brow with it. And when it's 50 degrees here, I'm going out in the woods with my maul and split me some firewood. Deal?

    We were supposed to have switched in the 80s. It didn't quite work out. BTW, 0 degrees is as arbitrary as 32 (unless we're talking Kelvin). It is the increments where metric makes more sense.
