... we can glide along all night.

Why would you want to [glide all night long on a frozen lake]? I get that there are folks who actually like being cold and layered and whatnot. I'm just asking "why?"

Here in Mississippi, we're sort ticked off that it's a smidgen too cold to be sporting flip flops.

What is it about the cold that appeals to you?

Well, for one. I can always come in from the cold.

I always feel grateful I have a warm house. And when it snows or rains, I give a nod to that roof over my head.

Homelessness must really suck.

Hey Althouse, you gonna give me any credit yet? I do remember *somebody* talking about "the dead end of [my] New Age witchhunt" coming up the road or something. Well it hasn't happened yet.

You, Ann, are one of my heroes. I wish y'all wouldn't fight me on this shit:

Meade's got to get a grip.

Weather conditions permitting, I imagine Ms Althouse's husband crooning;
“Moonlight becomes you, it goes with your hair
You certainly know the right thing to wear
Moonlight becomes you, I'm thrilled at the sight
And I could get so romantic tonight
[…] Mind if I tag along”.

When I was younger, I didn't mind the cold; now I agree with Marica a lot.

You might want to put a bright colored something on that jacket (hung around the collar or suspended from a zipper tab), Madame. If you got hurt, you might not get noticed laying in the snow.

I always laughed when The Blonde took all my pennies and put them in the bank so she could pay off the house that much quicker.

Not having a house payment is really appreciated.

PS Ann, I sent you an email a couple of days ago. If you didn't get it, let me know so I can start checking what's wrong on my end.

I don't mind the heat and humidity when I am gardening, or exercising, or sitting on the beach. I didn't mind the extreme cold in Alaska; it was the long hours of darkness that got to me.

As I get older I too find the extreme cold like I have now (its 2 degrees this AM) to be debilitating. The dog doesn't like it much either - I let him out this morning and he didn't come in right away as usual. I found him shivering in what I thought was the 'dumping' position.

Alas, no dump, he was too cold to move, poor guy. Had to give him a push to get him going again. He tends to get constipated due to his reluctance to go outside. Maybe someone should develop winter dog Metamucil to keep it moving.
