It took me years to acclimate.


I lived in SoCalif for 7 years. I came to
hate the winters there. No snow, but
I was acclimated, so 55 felt cold and
I had to wear a jacket. When spring
came it wasn't that different than
winter, just a little warmer.

When spring comes in MI, it's glorious.
You feel born again, you feel alive.
In SoCalif I felt like warmed up left
over oatmeal when spring came.

I don't like it here. Most of the time, I like it even less. Circumstances have me chained.

I was raised in the PNW and I miss Green, and what kin I have left.

The color here is varying shades of scorched earth. Havasu isn't Hell, but you can see it from here.

Twenty below is cold, no matter where it is.

I will say I've have had some pretty nice days at 10 above.

Do you get Alpenglow there?

Was strange driving to work two days ago. The air's moisture was crystallized. It wasn't the warp speed effect of a heavy snow, but rather made it sparkly, like driving through unicorn farts. The real trippy thing was it caused all oncoming headlights to project a super strong beam dead straight up into the air, and I'm talking spotlight strength. Every car had a 100'+ pillar riding in front of it that you could see coming from a mile+ away. I could see the prison by my house from the hockey rink when I left; it's about 25mi as the crow flies.

I work out in this s#$% minimum 5hrs a day with only surgical gloves. Oddly, it's been so cake I've volunteered to work for free the last 3 days in a row. I guess dementia has its upside.
Be bold and risk defeat, or be cautious and encourage it.

IDK, probably. I was thinking of the kind you see when there is snow, it's really cold, and the glow is layered with the shades of blue and pinks. It is remarkable up north going through the passes.
