I must be part Finnish because I have no trouble with cold but can't tolerate heat.

In the winter I keep my home heated to 55F/13C. No joke! I find that below 51F I can be uncomfortable, but above that just requires a sweater. 55 provides a small but adequate margin. Above 85F/30C my body starts to shut down. I wish I could dig an underground den and hibernate like a bear for the summer.

I copy-pasted this - so spelling errors are not mine . . .
Haha we have similar lines. In my area the year consists of 8 months of winter hell and 4 months of pleasant summer. We still had snow last week. This week the first leaves are emerging timidly. I just put first seeds into freshly thawed ground.

Trees have been budding here for a week or two - and today we have wet snow - or sleet . . .

Well, I'm not as bad as the Spanish at 15C, but my thin Mediterranean blood really doesn't like temperatures below 4C. I like summer. :)

You can't say nothing anymore! Everything is supposedly schauvinism and "microaggression" !!!

The microaggression is in your pants.

By the way - I checked this whole thread to see if I posted #174 before - only to notice, that there are many pictures, that are no more there.

I use two ways to put them in

Older is with Wordpress - and since the new forum I have also just dragged them from my computer.

Naturally there´s no way for me to remember which is which in every case.
