    We were at 11 F here this morning. It's 22 now (almost 10AM) and supposed to reach a blistering 53 by 2PM. Still have not had any snow to speak of (light dusting a couple weeks ago).

    Hit -9 in the suburbs this morning as I was driving to work at 6am. Car sits outside as the good stuff occupies the garage. Started fine, but had to run for a bit before the throttle cable warmed enough to not stick when I pressed the gas. Now into the low teens. Supposed to be like this until the beginning of next week.

    That assumes he owns any! Bermuda Shorts may be all he has.

    It's been about 9 degrees to about 30 today.
    Not as unbearable as I thought it'd be.

    Along with a thin nylon "windbreaker" jacket. Garbage in this weather. Went out yesterday and spent money on clothing I haven't had since life in Sewickley. Likely won't use the stuff ever again after the next two weeks pass. *sheesh*.

    Got a leather biker jacket with quilted lining. With my black watch-cap, sunglasses and cargo pants, Mitsy exclaimed: "Holy Mother! You're "Heisenberg"!!!" ...Now what I need is a black pork-pie hat.

    Currently it's 44*F and raining. Temp's not too bad until you factor in the humidity and breeze. Looking at possible freezing temps overnight for a couple more days. That plays he77 with strawberry crops and the various citrus farms.

    Strawberry shortcake is gonna be an expensive luxury for y'all come July.

    After I got back to Pittsburgh in May '74, having spent a year in Thailand and Viet Nam, I realized my body thrived in 100*F and high humidity MUCH better than the west Pennsylvania climate. Took the winter of '78 to convince me to move to lower latitudes. Apparently not low enuff now!

    Yeah, he left ABQ recently enuff that he hasn't acclimatized just yet. Give him a few more Tampa summers, then throw this stuff at 'im and see what his reaction is!
