Depends on what I'm doing. For streaking I prefer a balmy 75 degrees. For curling I like it to be nice and chilly, say 20 degrees.

I'm from Minnesota, and Kansas is balmy in comparison. What sucks here is the occasional demonic winds and ice storms.

When I have to scrape the windshield..... mainly because I always forget to do it until right when I walk out the door. Then I have to wait an additional 15 minutes warming my car and scraping ice.

I will say this for the Merc. I go in there once in a while this time of year, just so I can take my shirt off. I'm not the only one, so they never kick me out.

Anything below 70 F. If it's too cold to go everywhere with no shirt, it's too damn cold. But I still have my shirt off at all times when I'm inside.

Based on recent enlightenments I would withdraw my previous comment of 12:30 a.m. The misprint misguided my mistaken malignment of melanie. mea culpea....yeah..that's lawyer talk for "my bad".

Never been divorced. That would require a lawyer and as we all know.... lawyers are horrible, horrible people.

Don't like cold weather. Anything below 50 degrees is too cold for me. Besides, it makes the ladies where too much clothing. I like cold beer and bourbon in ice. That is about it. After New Year's Day, I count the days until the pools open again.

It is too cold when I have to break down and put on my right hand glove and can't play with my phone when I'm outside.

It depends on what you have to do. It never get too cold to hunt or trek to the Free State Brewery.

Colby needs a job. I fear he is going to be a drain on society.

Okay, let me digress. The brass monkey loses it's balls (cannon) when it gets real cold. That's because the monkey is made of brass. It is brass so the cannon balls don't corrode to it while at sea. Get it? Didn't think so. But RoaD is right. When he loses them, it is cold.

Melanie, hon, the air doesn't freeze. The moisture in the air does.

too cold....? when the oil gets thick and your motor will not turn over.
