This weekend I will be in 68-70F temps, and I bet it will feel far warmer than the 72F I experienced in September.
Yep, people acclimatise quickly. See it on the orchard where I work during summer, with people from much hotter climates, struggling with temperatures in the 20s C.

So is Providence not a four season climate? It's in the northeast which is what the opp specified. Also I don't know about all of them, but my parents are from Simferopol and they say that snow is very common there in the winter.

The same applies here. I see people from tropical climates that have lived here thru winter before, and wear less winter gear than I do. You should try a winter here, you would probably be the type without a hat on today.
