Perspective

I don't think self-pity has ever been part of my weather experience.  Perhaps in very heavy snow or in truly miserable driving, but even then, I have tended toward finding it invigorating rather than oppressive.  I am more likely to find heat oppressive.

But winter, now, winter is for the few, the strong!  We scoff at you pansies in in milder climes.

Except now I have lost all bragging rights to my sons.  It is going down to 4 degrees tonight in Nome, and Tromso will have light snow the next three days.

You can always appeal to history.

"Back in MY day...."

Of course, if they care to research the historical record, they may be able to refute your claims, exaggerated or not...but still -- it may be worth the risk.

Then again...if you go back FAAAAR enough...

That's OK, you have to be tough to put up with a TX summer without recourse to air conditioning. Well, maybe 3 hours a summer.

Back in MY day, I recall the winter that my parents put in a fireplace as being extremely cold. The extreme cold must have been why a moose wandered south to our town. My father never forgave the neighbor who shot it. A moose will definitely help fill a freezer.

Only pansies find heat oppressive. (Well, and me.)

It was 78 degrees last night near midnight, humidity in the 90% range. Woe. Woe.
