OMG ppl here (mn) start waering shorts at 55 (not me but i know ppl who do) so im jsut wondering whats cold to you? i personally wont take my son out to play in anything under 25 and i wont take him outside at all (unless emergancy) if is under 10.. nbut i think its really cold when its gets into the single digits or below...

  • For me, and I live on Long Island, NY, anything under 30 is cold, and anything under 20 is just plain bone chilling freezing!

  • Hmm it's 24 here right now, and I'm sitting in front of an open window.. Once it gets down to like 15 or so then I get irritated. I wouldn't even turn the heat on at this temp if it wasn't for my daughter.

  • I am from Texas originally and I remember when 55 was cold. Then I did my undergrad in Minnesota. OMG, if the seven ring of hell froze over, that would describe the winters there. It was miserable and cut through you to the bone. I played basketball in college and at the orientation they told us that after practice we needed to not inhale the air too much because our lungs could freeze and cause pneumonia. WTF? lol Fifty degrees below zero with the windshield is cold. I am so happy to be back in Seattle, give me the wet dismal rain any day of the week!

  • It hardly ever gets colder than 40 here even at night. But I consider 30's to be COLD. I can deal with the 30's as long as I'm prepared enough for it. I consider anything about 70 to be hot though! My ideal temp. is like 65.
