You never feel cold. I would be a Popsicle where you live.

I cant wait to move down to Texas, where one can go jacket free in December. They also have lot of aerospace and engineering job opportunities down there. I also love the football culture. Best of all worlds.

Jersey people are too cold hardy for me to understand, especially the cheer leading squad wearing tank tops and track pants on a 30 F morning. 50 F is sweatshirt weather in my books and that's unlikely to change no matter where I go.
I used to be one who would laugh. Then I lost 63 pounds and now realize just how useful that extra fat was in the winter. No matter, I now enjoy all the cute winter clothes I can fit into and am having fun with layering.

I LOVE this chilly fall weather!

My boyfriend, however, hates it and has turned into Mr. GrumpyCat

I haven't had to break out the heavy parka yet here in Boston, and am perfectly comfortable with my wool socks/boots, leggings and dresses with sweaters and my cotton peacoat. I may start swapping out my wardrobe this weekend though... don't think I'm gonna need my flip flops and summer dresses for a while.

I don't know what it's like in NJ or PA, but the real problem is the wind. If there is no wind, I actually find myself enjoying the cold air.

I always try to chase the winter blahs with brightly colored new scarves, hats, gloves, etc. My winter coats from past years will do again just fine. They are wool and oh so warm. Today's high temperature was about thirty-three degrees here in the heart of PA. It is O-fficially time to stash the summer frocks and get out the woolies.

Perhaps gardening indoors in a heated moist greenhouse would be a good idea. I have a steam room set up for my fragrant jasmine flowers to grow happily.
The poster wasn't talking about a plant though, they were talking about bulbs. A lot of bulbs are planted in late fall because they won't come up for a few months. The cold doesn't hurt them. Like Tulip bulbs are planted in the fall. You just want to make sure you plant them before the ground gets too hard, but not early enough that they sprout and get killed off by early spring frost.

Sorry for my misunderstanding .

I usually buy veggie plants and perennial roses from a nearby nursery and place them in my soil. Tropical flowering plants from the same nursery are placed in pots and brought indoors after mid October. The variety of jasmine I own is very sensitive to cold (Just like me). However, it produces beautiful and very fragrant flowers providing a fresh natural aroma around the house. They are also sacred flowers and are offered to Hindu gods during festivals, and some of these festivals occur during winter.

Very rare on the banks of the Raritan. Usually, there is quite a bit of wind where I work in the winter, and it makes cold temps even colder. I agree that less wind would be helpful.

Its not just me who thinks its cold. My friends from college were complaining just like me on how cold it was today. We were limited to a high of 37 F today. My buddy called me a "brave man" for walking 1 mile in full winter gear when it was 35 F to reach my assigned parking garage. New yorkers are usually a sensitive bunch when it comes to handling adverse weather conditions and love to complain constantly about the cold, heat, or rain. I hope you are aware of that.
