Has anyone noticed their hands getting cold while riding a z, etc. but not when walking behind a wb? Guess the exercise increases the blood flow to the extremities.

I've noticed that for every year I age, my minimum comfort temperature goes up about another degree. I'm up to about 62 degrees now.

Same here.

Seems the northern and Midwestern guys handle the cold better but the southerners do better during the hot summers.

I think I'm running ahead of your ratio. Haha.

I'd rather have the heat, but 30 doesn't bother me.

You're more bundled up in those pics than I was shoveling snow....

It was 34 degrees today and I brewed a batch of beer and BBQ'd some burgers on the deck with slippers on, flannel PJ bottoms and a tshirt and hoodie.

I'm sure 30 would bother me right now I am no longer use to it. But its funny how in fall doing clean ups the temps have no effects on me till we get into the low 20s then I say Uncle. As for the other direction I have mowed in 107 degrees a few summers back can't say I enjoyed it. 90 is unpleasant enough luckily up here thats usually about the high it seldom brakes 90 for more than about 20 days each year.

Heat sucks.

I posted this yesterday in the single digits thread.

Then again, 12* is 23* warmer than yesterday morning and 40* warmer than Friday morning.
It definitely is the wind. 13* this morning but the wind chill is 2*. Not nearly as nice as yesterday morning.

-18* last Friday.
-11* Monday.

Still well over a foot of snow on the ground. More like 18-24". Haven't seen grass since the first week of December.
