    It’s really cold, and neither of our boys has gloves on! ’Doggie’s hoody is good for the neck, whereas Monty seems rather exposed with his loose scarf. Too bad the cold has not yet affected his memory of that summer slight….

    Chill factor due to the wind.

    Dry cold is much more tolerable than damp cold. That’s why you can go into the snowy mountains of Arizona with short sleeves and be comfortable. Here in Ohio its very damp freezing cold.

    I lived 20 years in Colorado and thought moving to Georgia would at least mean I wouldn’t feel cold. Turns out the damp cold of the Southeast is much nastier than the dry variety of the Front Range. Cuts right to the bone.

    Now I’m up by Lake Ontario, and it’s colder than Georgia, but that’s actual cold. If it was this cold plus wet, it would be intolerable.

    I don’t perspire until I’m mowing the lawn in 90* heat with high humidity. Sounds like your mom and I would have gotten along splendidly.

    The humidity is what makes hot hotter and cold colder. On our recent trip to Alaska, I learned that Fairbanks’ days of 40 below are tolerable only because it’s so dry there. January’s average of 10 inches of snow yields only 1/2 inch precipitation.

    One of the first rules of winter camping was to always change clothes to sleep in no matter how cold it was because lying around in damp clothes was a sure fire way to go into hypothermia so you’ll excuse me if I find your statement to be just about the biggest pile of nonsense I have ever read.
    And yes, I do sweat a lot and when it’s damp cold out during a workout, I feel a lot colder faster then when the humidity is lower.

    I’ve been in -30 degrees and it wasn’t that bad at all….no wind…34 and damp is the worst temperature in my opinion…..Water vapor in the air helps transfer the temperature to the skin….Ever notice that the bath mat doesn’t feel as cold as the floor when you get out of the shower? They are actually the same temperature. The floor touches more surface area of the skin than the bath mat Very similar….

    We lived in the Serra Nevadas and the Midwest. 20 degrees at 10% is way better than 25 at 35%. The damp lets the cold penetrate. Also, I NEVER had my scarf freeze to my face and become incrusted with ice, there, here it happens in less than 10 minutes.
