    Jumper : sweater that paratroopers wore for jumping out of planes.

    I’ve always called them
    Sweaters though because until lately I’ve always been overly hot and sweated every time I wore one.

    If you live someplace very desirable where the weather is beautiful the majority of the year ?

    There will be numerous things residing there that can kill you as well as frequent weather occurrences that could do it as well.

    If you live in Michigan ?

    Avoid cheese and carbs as you sit inside watching TV and if God provides you a 50° day in in December ? Fer chrissakes get on your Bad Motor Scooter and ride .

    Oh, so that's what "abhor" means. We do that in the winter around here too.

    It gets cold here, but we have hardly any mosquitos. I like warm better, but I hate mosquitos, so it's a hard choice. Lived in FL for some years, and liked it OK. I'm retired now, so I guess I'm required to move back there now. But, the mosquitos.....

    As a WI resident I can say there are many who do not want to go there in any season. I think the exceptions would be when the salmonids are running from the big lake or a long gone era when people wanted to buy Rambler cars and Case tractors.

    Your imagination really got busy in that last half paragraph there

    Did you mean to let the rest of us know what you were busy dreaming of?

    Seems like someone else needs a cold bath as well

    All things should be considered in proper perspective :).

    I lived in Alaska back in the 1970s and '80s.

    There were a couple of winters when I worked in Prudhoe Bay, working for pipe inspection company. Part of my duties were working the pipeyard - loading and unloading truck loads of drill pipe, casing, tubing, etc. It was outdoor work, and there was no getting around it.

    Prudhoe Bay is not the coldest place in Alaska (the coldest is generally along the Yukon River drainage), but it is one of the places that is furthest north in the U.S.A. Forty to fifty below was fairly common, and one memorable day it was fifty four below zero (-54 F), which is pretty dag-gone cold. Cold enough to make you think to be careful, because you know that if something serious happened and you got injured somewhere where you might not be found for awhile, and you just might freeze to death. Brrrrr!!! :)

    Fifty four below (-54 F) is cold, but not cold enough to freeze spit or piss before it hits the ground. I think it needs to be around -65 F or -70 F before that happens :D.



    Best Regards,
    Geo.

    I was wondering if that was a typo, and you meant "wilder" woman? :)

    But come to think of it, "wider" could also mean "warmer", no? :)

    You USA boys tell the truth now: seeing all that bacon made your mouths water and you reached for the maple syrup from your holsters like Clint Eastwood in a Spaghetti Western

    24F here in Colorado and I have my window open a little. The room's a bit on the chilly side and the cat is curled up in my lap while I work on some coding project or play a game.

    I grew up in California; San Diego and San Francisco (Vallejo mainly) with a couple of stays in Bremerton or out in Rhode Island. I also spent some 33 years living in the DC area. Personally I'm done with the heat and humidity and associated mold and mildew. The worst thing out here aside from the homeless and their campfires are the f*cking woodpeckers. :D
