It's my fault. Some years ago I departed Chicago and muttered; Good Riddance To These @#*# Bitter Cold Winters! I guess that Winter is following me wherever I go.

I have to say, it doesn't seem fair we should have to deal with both 110° heat index and -10° wind chills in a 5-month span. One really ought to preclude the other.

I agree, it's not my cup of tea.

Visvaldis,

Very funny, and yes Joanie, it depends on what you are used to as "Winter." I was just trying to make the point that it is not a MILD Winter there if you are from a Southern area. But, really, I was trying to find out if there is skating on the Belvedere? Lights at that church in Indiana that you drive through? That sort of stuff.

Mojolico, our winters here really aren't much different than the winters they have in Tennessee, Western NC, or North GA. We get a few more inches of snow and have a couple more days of "very cold" temperatures, but that's about it, so I'm not really sure what your point is. And we do have those random spurts of 65 degree days in January and early February that you won't find in cities that have "true" winters like Cleveland.

Unless I've missed something you never stated where you live, so I have no idea where you're even coming from here. You just started talking about how it is where you live without mentioning where that place is.

Look, then you live in Cleveland, Detroit, Minnesota, you KNOW what you're in for. Not everyone, including me, was informed how cold, icy and miserable Louisville is in the winter. Enough said.

Louisville isn't exactly at the latitude of Miami, you know.
