“Winter Clothes”? This confuses me. Surely one can simply wear the same wardrobe all year round? And what is this strange white flakey stuff falling out of the sky? It tastes nothing like ash or cocaine.
……. God, I know exactly what you’re on about, Jrage.
I mean, don’t people wear shorts all year?
Don’t forget the flip-flops!
Or the beach hats and Hawaiian shirts!
I get looks for wearing shorts all year. I live in the Appalachian foothills, south of the Mason-Dixon line. And when people ask me if I’m cold, I tell them, “Cold is when you live in Detroit, 10 miles from work, and you commute on a bicycle all winter long in -40 windchills.”
And yes, I did do that. But the real reason is that nearly every building around here has the thermostat set too high for me to be comfortable in pants, and I’m almost never outside for more than 60s at a time.
I have the opposite problem, Arkanabar. Though I’m from Canada, so I know the meaning of cold, I live in Texas now. The office I work at has the thermostat set so low that I’m thinking about wearing long sleeves to work. Except for the fact that outside it gets up to 90+ degrees lately.
I live in such a weird area! I live in the desert that is Arizona, and yet it’s freaking cold for half the year!
It’s the desert! I shouldn’t need winter clothes! Or a heater for that matter!
Desert doesn’t mean hot. It means extreme temperatures and very dry for most of the time. Heck most of the Antartic is desert.
Dang, can’t reply to FWTrump…
Noooo… Desert just means very dry. That happens to cause wild temperature swings since moisture will slow the swings down. But you’re correct about much of the poles being classified as desert.
there are people in my neighborhood who do that
I live in mendota heights less than 10 minutes, biking, from the twin cities
i live very close to where this story is set (if hte city names are accurate)
address is 654 Callahan Place just down the street from Henry Sibley High School
Meh I live in warren Michigan, I once ran out in 52 degree weather in a t-shirt (My ideal temp is ten degrees colder then everyone else’s) for two hours straight.
You should move to a northern area. Where I am, in the winter…jeans and a T-shirt. In the summer…jeans and a t-shirt. That petty much covers the clothing range from -30 F to 110 F for me.
I KNEW IT! Her arms are getting bigger.
I mean aside from the first comics to now.
