[12]b - cold

I was talking to a man from West Africa today about how cold it is in the Mitten, and how they are expecting snow there (this was before I knew that we were expecting snow here). 

He asked how cold it was in the Mitten, and I looked on my phone. "32 degrees," I said.

"Freezing!" he said. "So it's just as cold here as it is there."

I can see why it feels that way, when you come from the tropics. 

It was 39 degrees here, and the sun was shining. I took off a layer because I got hot, walking.

It's almost like I'm used to this cold weather nonsense.
