Cold is relative

Depends on where you live I guess?

You get us British wimps complaining how cold it is when it hits the mid twenties over here, on the other hand, there are parts of the US and Canada who would think that positively tropical at present.  I’ve just taken a quick look, and currently Boston is in singles figures (just), and Buffalo barely breaking into positive numbers. Fairbanks, where I have one Facebook contact is currently -45, but it is still night time there, but even so…! I suspect thats pretty much one of the coldest places around though? Nome, a place close to my heart is at 1, quite warm for this time of year lol!

The thing is, I suspect that public transport doesnt collapse around New York State, New England, Toronto etc despite these temperatures, whereas 3 grains of snow over here, and everything will collapse totally! Thankfully its only frost so far, so it hasnt happened yet, but give it time, and I’m sure it will. Knowing my luck it will be the week after next when I’m off! I would like to do some day trips beyond the one to get my back and knees sorted out, to some degree at least, but…

I suppose its what you get used to? If I lived, and worked in, and around that North East sector I mentioned, the cold probably wouldnt bother me as much, if at all, unlike it does over here? Me, I just tend to get on with it anyway, but public transport seems unable to do so, and when you’re reliant on it as I am… But yes, I’d still love to chance to live and work in those chilly areas, given the chance. Seattle might be better, but… Hey, I’d probably go and work in Anchorage if given the opportunity lol! Fairbanks, hmm… 😉

Its something you get used to, or at least I assume you do, maybe James, Kate and others will tell me differently? Mind, a well insulated silver body suit might make for a good option for me, lol!

Alright, some music which seems applicable at the moment, though doing it along I-90 might be complex all the same! I tossed up several versions of this, but this seemed the most apt somehow
