Winter is Finally Here...

We had a nice little Indian summer, but it's over now.

Cold and raining. Not nekkid in house time because it costs too much to run the heater.

Sad days are here

Kill myself you say? I'd probably fail, besides, most ways to do that require too much effort.

We have not yet had a freeze at my house, which is unbelievable. Of course, I am constantly frozen out, but that's a different issue.

We only just turned on the heating for the first time on the weekend.

Today was warm again though.

Having seen snow a couple of times, I feel I know everything on the subject!

Depends on the wind chill IMHO. I've been in -8 temps with about a massive wind chill and it was almost unbearable. And yet the next day -10 with no wind was nice (in comparison).

Yes and no. When it gets too hot, humidity is the defining factor. A small amount is bearable, but lots of humidity is just crappy. Wind can make a difference, but humidity is king when it's hot!
