Cold to me is anything below 60. 50's are bearable but anything below that is just plain miserable

The person that posted this lists Madison, WI! Considering the whole state is below 0 right now, they must be really miserable. Living in Wisc. and saying 50 is just bearable, one would need to move, although Mad town is much warmer than where I am!!!

Two Rivers is one of the colder places in Wisconsin (Rhinelander is usually the coldest). What are your windchill's right now.

Here its 3.2 F with a windchill of -14 F.

I usually like the cold, but this is too much for me. Around 30 F for a high is perfect winter weather.

Summer, anything below 50 F is cold, but 55 F lows are the best. Anything above 84 F for a high gives me mild headaches.

Below about 8C is cold for me. Our winter highs average 8-9C, but most of the time we are getting mild south westerlies from the Atlantic so it doesn't feel cold.. in fact this winter so far I have only felt cold on a few days.. I don't think we have had a max temp below 6C yet, most days have been 8-13C here so far this winter.

I have even slept with my window open the past few nights when our low temps have been about 9/10C

In winter, anything above -10 C (14 F) is considered to be a nice day.

The only plus to these cold temps, great winter pics, gorgeous sunsets and interesting ice building up along the shore!

The winds were very high, the sand on the beach mixed with the snow so the drifts have sand and snow, very pretty.

When I bought here, I almost bought closer to the lake but those people have to shovel sand from the beach all year, winter snow is enough for me.

Northeast Texas here.

I usually like the cold snaps we get around here (current one excepted but it's very unusual) - I like a bit of winter weather and every winter we get temps in the 20s on occasion and once in awhile it will even drop down into the teens but that's very rare. I love a cold, rainy night spent INSIDE by the fire!

I get chilly when, with the windchill, it feels like it's below about 32 degrees. If it's icy, I feel cold. But I walk regularly, even in cold weather - especially if it's sunny. I just walked outside to be sure my sprinkler system hadn't busted in the 11 degree weather we had last night and though it is now in the 30s, the sun is out in full force, and it feels GREAT outside!

Sun makes all the difference. If there's no wind, I can actually feel too warm if I'm being physically active, even when it's below freezing.

Below about 20F / -7C

Winter temps in the 20s (-1 to -6C ) can be pleasant if little or no wind.

For me temps like today are not fun, I would not like to live anywhere
where temps below 10F / -12C are common. Doing anything outdoors becomes a chore,
give me temps just below freezing and some sun, I'm happy.
This Polar Vortex stuff is no good.
