How cold is it?

In Denver, with 7 degrees and minus 7 with wind chill, it's so cold that my assets are frozen. How about at your place?

Was running 20 below for a couple of days, but warmed up to 3 above. Wind has died down too. Wore a windbreaker over my sweater for my Target foray. Now if the days would get longer!

It's been in the thirties in North Texas and drizzlin' rain. Gosh, I hate this cold weather. All these post about below zero make me glad I am in Texas, but I have spent most of the day dreaming about a little get away to a warmer climate. I have spent a lot of time looking at locations in Mexico and the Caribbean and thinking how good it would feel to be back in my shorts and flip flops again.

Did I say I hate the cold weather.

Congratulations...with this market, frozen assets sounds pretty good!

Low temps here in DC area are about the same as yours. Highs are upper 20s ambient.

Not sure, but I did a 5 mile run at lunch in shorts and a t-shirt and it was fine

Tomorrow's high is supposed to be 50F which is really cold for a daily high in Silicon Valley but it is still shorts and t-shirt weather. Just have to run a little faster
