    Default phoenix, 45 degrees eff and drizzle

    heavy winter coats are out, many with faux fur lined hoods

    and boots, especially on women, knee high leather snow slush proof style, yet still sexy

    natives, if they are out and about outdoors, all walking about with a steely winter grimace on their faces

    a few of the more despondent have the thousand yard stare
    Simpler is better, except when complicated looks really cool.

    45 f and drizzle you say.

    Welcome to a welsh summer evening - formal attire is flip flops shorts and a tee shirt.

    For "hard" try St. James' Park in Newcastle.
    I'd much rather lay in my bunk all freakin day lookin at Youtube videos .

    Yesterday morning dawned 6F, but it's since warmed to 33F - T-shirt and shorts weather here. Not enough to melt the permafrost, though.

    When we moved here almost 5 years ago I laughed at people sitting under heat lamps bundled up like Bernie in mittens.

    NOW !!! Five years later, Renee & I request the heat lamps and blankets if the temp drops below 70

    That said temp is weird here, if you are in direct sun and it 60 deg it feels like 90 deg and if its mid summer and 114 deg but you get a little shade it feels like 80.

    Paul give it some time you will be as wimpy as Renee and I

    Just under a hundred here today (later today- it's 6.25am now) and several degrees hotter tomorrow. Can't complain though- it's the mildest summer we've ever had so far. JayInOz

    27F here. Light snow in the forecast. Got the wood stove glowing. Glorious!
    I can't imagine why this area is the hottest real estate market in the US.

    105F or thereabouts here today and the girls on the beach are wearing considerably less than that. I think I must be an old fart when I wonder at the age of young girls in family groups wearing mostly just string.
    Of course when I was young the French bikini had just arrived and some of those were 'quite brief', and I had no objection then!

    Just saying - if it's drizzling it isn't cold.

    At time of the year I am acclimated to winter. 40 degrees is shorts and a couple t-shirts. In the middle of summer 40 degrees would be brutal. I can understand people being un-acclimated to temperatures.
    Life is complex.

    OMG Bob we are brothers from another mother Altered States is one of my seminal movies. I actually read Julian James origins of conscience and the bicameral mind before I saw that movie. I actually did 12 hrs in a sensory deprivation tank test at Princeton.

    You do know that Altered States started of as a serious SciFi film but they fired the first director and hired some fantasy horror movie director. You can see the shift when the monkey BS started

    I only saw it once, many decades ago, but it made an impression on me. However I'm certain I saw it on TV, so they may have left out some of the drug stuff.
