I have lived in New York my entire life. The rather mild winter in 2011-2012 left us with almost no snow, ice, and bone chilling days. This winter started out in a similar fashion. December was filled with days that consistently went above the 32 degree mark. All of this changed when back to back snow storms hit our area.
Not only did we suddenly have at least a foot of snow on the ground, the temperatures dropped. Snow is beautiful to look at, but it turns to ice, forms dams on houses, and makes maneuvering outside tricky. None of this really phases the boys, they are happy to stay outside and play.
Thursday morning it was –2 when the boys had to walk into school. When you factor in the wind, it was –7. It was COLD and the sting factor was definitely there. I seriously will not complain about 30 degree weather again, it does seem rather balmy right now.
My question to you this week:
What is your ideal outdoors temperature and why do you prefer that?
