I take a lot of friendly harassment when the temperature climbs above 100 degrees and stays that way for several days. My intense hatred of cold weather seems to be common knowledge. The truth is, all the horror stories in my life that I can remember happened when it was freezing and the snow was 5 feet high. So, it’s really not that I don’t ever get too warm, it’s just that compared to 10 below zero, I prefer to live with the heat.
