Even though I average 7 nights in the teens, it hasn't happened since February 2011. I hate these warm winters..

I'd define 15 F as intense cold, temperatures that low here are usually accompanied by wind and no sunlight (nighttime). Luckily, these conditions only occur a couple times a season.

It's actually the lowest temperature I've ever experienced.

Where were you when it got to 1 F in NYC in January 2004?

15F is certainly cold, but nothing compared to -10F (-23C). At 5F (-15C) it begins to get increasingly uncomfortable for me. With proper clothing, 13-15F is nothing biggie, though I prefer those temperatures only a handful of times a winter.

Lol okay, the way you worded it made it seem like the lowest Temp in NYC that you've seen is 15 F, though I just realized you said "experienced"

Intense cold? You'd have to subtract at least 30F from your figure to get to what I'd define as intense cold. If there's a 10 mph breeze, though, the wind chill would be around 0F, which is more respectable but still not what I'd call intense.

I almost never wear a hat when it's -7C assuming it's not windy or snowing, and I actually go out in shorts, short sleeves, and sandals when it's -7C for short periods of time. For longer lengths of time I wear a standard winter outfit (jacket, gloves, pants).
