Default Poll: Baby it's cold outside?

At what temperature do you consider it cold? Jacket weather, not sweater weather.

Just got back from another mini cruise 3 days to the Bahamas on the Fascination. Nassau Bahamas high on Saturday was 64 degrees. It was so unusual to see the natives all bundled up heavy jackets and stocking caps. You would think it was in the 20s. We were there the weekend before on the Majesty (another mini) and they had jackets on because it was in the 70s.

I lived in Missouri for 5 years and it was so cold your nose hairs would freeze, sorry thats gross, but true. Then my Ex got a job at Nascar in Daytona Beach. I threw out all our winter coats and snowboots, yeah. That first winter in Florida was probably the coldest I had ever been. I don't know if it's the breeze off the ocean or if your your blood thins or what. But 60 degrees there was colder to me than 10 degrees in Missouri.

Hi It's 16F here in western NY with a wind chill of -2F. Thats cold. Was in FLA last week and had been there for 10 days. It was cute to see the visitors just arriving. They thought 60F was shorts and tee shirt weather. Even though I thought it was nice, I still had a jacket and long pants on. Hurry up summer!

Cold to me is about 45 - 50 - at these temps I only have a sweater on though.

For John 60 and he is getting chills. Jacket weather for him.

when it gets about 55 degress its light jacket time, the colder it gets the heavier the jacket gets. Not looking forward to the next few days, they have posted a windchill warning for the next 2 days, i think i'll stay inside as much as i can Brrrrrrrr!!!

When it gets below 70 I put on something light, below 60 it's a coat. Steel rods, bolts, screws and bailing wire tend to get cold rather quickly. <>

Depends on the time of the year. In winter, 50 feels warm. In summer, 70 seems chilly.
Also depends on wind speed.

19 days until Sensation, can already feel the waves' oscillation.

What Jim said. Except without the steel rods, bolts, screws and bailing wire. <G>

On the "lei'd" cruise I noticed people in windbreakers or heavier jackets and I didn't have one. Usually 50 - 55 I think about getting a windbreaker, below 50 flannel lining around 35 or so I get out the heavier jacket.

Later this week they're calling for below zero and then it is time for my down wonder!!

I remember vacationing in the fall near Isle of the Palms, SC and I was in my bikini and the locals were in their jogging suits! They thought I was crazy but it was 70 and I was happy! Of course, I was younger then and the cold probably didn't bother me as much!

How cold is it? It's so cold that when I took a nickel out of my pocket, the Queen was wearing the beaver!! (sorry, it's a Canadian joke!!)
seriously though, tonight here in Montreal it's supposed to be a wind chill factor of -40C, which is the point when Celcius = the same in Farenheit! Now THAT's cold!
Ooooh, I wish I was on a cruise in the Caribbean!!
