It got to 3 degrees centigrade overnight last night. A record I think for this region.

Did you go out to enjoy it? I remember -20C in New York in just a jumper in the past. It was worth it as ladies came up to me and asked if I knew how dangerous it was. I wrongly assumed it to be about -2. Sad bit of the story was talking to the firemen near the Empire State. They were keeping an eye on a building where things were falling down, same crew as 9-11 a few years later. I must have been out two hours and never really felt cold. Subway and eating warmed me up. People of New York are very friendly, Oxford needs one to be streetwise ( Cowley Road ). I was fine the next day. The reason for the jumper is I had driven from further south with a rental car. That dry cold is really nice.

did I go out and enjoy it? lol no, but the night is still young, tonight at about 10PM I will go outside in a jumper and go for a walk and later on when it reaches 3 degrees again at about 5am or so I can go out on the back verandah and breathe in some ice cold air.

If lucky the air will be still. I seldom smoke, that would be a time when I ask my daughter for one. Seldom is 10 a year or less. I remember friends.

I have received some strange looks and questions when running on the trail in the park barefoot and shirtless when it was near or below freezing, or even during a snow storm. The park custodian has grown used to it and doesn't even notice any more. The only other people out in those conditions are dog walkers.

I don't notice the cold if I keep moving. The colder it is, the faster I move.......motivation. Once you start running the loop, its over a mile back to the car, unless you wimp out and turn around. I have done that only once. It was a windy 35F and about 2 minutes into my run it started raining......no fun.

On the flip side of that, I just returned from 12 days in Florida, much of that on an island off the west coast near Ft. Meyers. It was 90+ degrees F (32 to 35C) and I was walking barefoot down a street on asphalt in the sun just after lunch. Much of the traffic inside the resort is golf carts and at least three people stopped me to ask if I needed a ride. They seemed amused that I preferred to walk the half mile from the pool back to the condo.

It is about 26C and 25C ( 80F ) inside. It feels almost cool. 8.30 at night.

On the NY trip as we passed through Hoboken we mentioned Mr Sinatra. The whole subway carriage spoke about him. Who says New Yorkers don't talk. My boss is an old school Londoner. He fits right in with New Yorkers.
