As much as I hate living in this climate, I have to admit that I've become somewhat acclimated to it; last winter when this area had its coldest mornings of the year (around 15F/-9C) I considered it too cold to go walking outside for about 1-2 hours like I usually do. So I guess my current limit (when I start using "cold" instead of "nippy", "chilly", etc.) is around 20F/-7C.

Sharp pain can start below 55 F.

I know, I meant whatever is appropriate for heavy activity.
Without a fast heart-rate, cold weather really sucks for me.

I'd rather deal with summers worst than avg October or November.
I don't think I've ever felt pain from cold weather during the summer. Come to think of it, I'm pretty sure I haven't experienced a summer with temperatures below 45 F (and of course temperatures rise rapidly during the summer, so I'm usually not even awake during the early morning hours). In Maine I think it might have dropped into the 30s in late August while there several years back, but I could be wrong. I just know it felt cold!

Today wasn't bad. Highs in the upper 30s with a brisk wind. Felt great.

Today felt cold to me (it was in the low 40s in NYC). Even despite the low humidity and cloudless skies. We had a few wet days earlier this week but they felt warmer because temperatures were in the 50s.

Really? I was chilled to the bone after getting soaked yesterday. My books even suffered water damage.

Meh. I still liked the feel of "warmth" yesterday. Umbrellas helped.

Today definitely felt cold but not really painfully so with the sun.

Walked to the train station in -7C in Buxton this morning. Felt OK. -7C in Manchester though, feels a lot colder, probably because of the higher relative humidity (no wind in either place).

Well, you have to stay dry, of course. If you are "soaked" you can feel cold even on an 80F day.

Though it can be refreshing to be soaked with rain if the temperature is rather high (say, in the high 90s).

Yea, it's just like a natural shower. I'd say above mid 70s I would no longer feel chilled being out in the rain. I rode my bike home this summer when it was 75-76 and pouring. Was fun.

"cold" for me, is when I need a long sleeve shirt. REAL cold is when I add a sweater, a jacket, a knit hat, gloves...
