I love cold weather. I think once it hits the single digits Fahrenheit, I'm somewhat displeased, but I don't get seriously cross about it unless it drops below zero. Now warm weather is something I can't stand. I'm a heat pansy, I think my tolerance is like 85F or something and then I start whining really a lot. The amount of whining is proportional to the humidity, too.

My favorite part of this, by the way, is seeing the sheer number of people from California going "omg like 60F" followed by about twenty Russians posting "-32F."

This amuses me because I am from Alaska and currently living in California, and I swear my temperature gauge has a reset on it, because in Alaska I am perfectly happy down to around 10F (and know how to tolerate down to -40F, even if it's not pleasant), but when I'm in California I'll be miserable as soon as it gets below 55F or so. This also means that I was very happy leave a 40s-50s and rainy spell in California to go back to a sunny part of Alaskan winter for spring break, and all my California friends were going "what is this thing you say it makes no sense" when I reported back that it was mid-thirties and gorgeous.

Having lived on the East Coast for most of my life, I have no idea whether or not my low tolerance for warm weather can even be changed. I vaguely the two weeks I spent in Taiwan in the summer of '08 as one long torture session of humid and sticky and blurgh, occasionally alleviated by ice-related foods, but I might not have had enough time to acclimatize. :P

Oh, my low tolerance for warm weather doesn't change. When I'm in California I'm just a total wimp about heat and cold.

Gotta love Alaska. I consider minus 40 a mite chilly, and at 50 I stay inside. But it's funny how after it's in the minus 30s and 40s for a week or two, then warms up to minus 15-20, it feel warm outside. Now, in the middle of breakup, it's still not getting above +30 much, but we're all running around outside in shirtsleeves, and some of us in t-shirts!

On the other hand, if it's below 60 in the house, people start complaining, even though they're goofing off outside and it's 30 degrees colder. Go figure.

I don't mind the cold... so long as I have the right layers of clothing on. When the temperature noticeably dips below freezing, that's all the cold I can stand. With that said, I miss snow in the winter- it's more fun than rain in the winter.
