I actually agree It's beautiful today, crisp and clean. It feels like winter without the snowy mess to deal with. I've been out and about all morning, and yes, I'm only wearing a light fleece sweatshirt My son, on the other hand, has been complaining bitterly, crying, and saying "I wish it were summer"

We did enjoy the extra two hours this morning though. Nice.

Bleah on the cold weather today and I disagree that it's just about as good as a winter day gets. That's certainly a matter of opinion. If it's going to be this cold my kids want SNOW! That makes for a nice wintry day. This just makes for cold.

Precip on top of cold weather just makes a decent day miserable! You can have it. I'll take cold and dry over cool and wet any day!

I was in college then as well (UNC) and I don't recall any days off for cold. I actually already knew that date was our all-time low, but I can't remember knowing that at the time. I was living in a cheap college apt with poor insulation and a 1/2 mile walk to campus. OTOH, I remember waiting for the school bus in 8th grade when it was 0 degrees, just for the novelty. I don't know why the novelty of a negative temp didn't register the same way. Maybe I should look for my old college diaries.
