I'm with the OP. This weekend's 40's will be cold to me. Anything below 65 is cold for me. Not sure what it is about me, but I can cool down easier than I can warm up. When it's 95 and 99% humid in July, it does not bother me at all. When it's 60 and cloudy, you'd think I was standing at the north pole with how many layers of clothes I have on.

65 and above is perfect
60-64 getting chilly
59 and below= booking flights to Miami

Beg to differ Once you've experience below zero temperatures, that horrible, biting, chilling wind, 20 degrees is warm.

To the OP: for me anything below 32 is now cold as I've been here too long and lost my Midwestern winter skin

In the summer, 60 is cold. In the Winter, below 32 is cold. If nude, 6o is cold. If swimming 75 is cold. If cooking a turkey, 150 is cold.

Well, I am a native, but I also spent about as much time in the mountains of NC growing up as I did in the Piedmont, as my family has a home in Blowing Rock. So my perception of "cold" has always been a little different than most folks who grew up here.

It is nippy or chilly to me at 30 d. F. It is cold at about 15 d. F. And it is "freezing cold" when the temps get into the 0 to minus degree range.

When I moved to Kansas, the +20 d F to -10 d. F winter temps felt "normal" to me. That is what a real winter is like. I always felt that the Piedmont region of NC rarely had a "real" winter, unless a Nor'easter came blowing through. Then the weather qualified as winter weather. Otherwise, most winter days in this part of the state have always seemed rather temperate to me.

I have spent many a Thanksgiving and a remarkable number of Christmases in this region wearing nothing more than a light sweater, something that is unthinkable for areas of the country that have "real" winters.

We're kinda spoiled here when it comes to really cold weather.
