    You reach a point, and it's different for everyone, where it's just not fun anymore. Wearing 50 layers tends to be uncomfortable to me. So does frostbite. Not saying I won't/haven't done it, just that it's not as much fun. Somehwere the equation balances out, and that's your hardcore line.
    Speaking of too cold, saw a report last night on SpaceLoft making into ski gear next fall. All I can say is "Sweeeeeet." With that stuff, Antarctica isn't too cold.

    The coldest I remember was 16 below at Loon last year. That seemed cold enough to me. I have said cold would not stop me , but wow( -31) beer drinking day. Our heat is broken at our office today I have my spring ski coat on.. I can't imagine working outside today. Some really tough people..
    Skiing is my addiction.

    I'll be at Jiminy tonight. I chaparone a school group on Tues. nights so I don't have a choice. Skiing at Whiteface alot, as I do you get use to frigid weather. I just layer up and take breaks when I have to. It is a winter sport after all.

    -15 isn't cold. I've skiied colder than that and it still didn't feel cold. I was outside in a sweatshirt today and wasn't cold.

    Last January around this time was cold. -45 in some places. Makes for good manmade stuff though.

    Friday is supposed to be the coldest day of this week and I'll be up nigh skiing. The good news: A GIANT Nor' Easter coming in Sunday-Monday. Even tomorrow's overnight storm looks good.

    ...wow... You actually skied in a sweatshirt today... Or were you just taking tha garbage out???

    Come on.... -15 is friggin cold... - you risk frostbite.. It can be dangerous if your not prepared... It's irresponsible to try and make others think that it's OK to go out in -15 weather.. If they are not used to it....

    Giant Nor'Easter? NOAA's not saying anything about it. I hope it comes, really I do. Really really. I want a snow day off!
