Well, then do what I do....look at a few photos of your area in the middle of winter when all you can do is dream about hot August nights. Well they're here and how better to appreciate them than to think about those miserable February days?

Feel free to post your own winter shots.

Here's Toronto in the throes of the frozen hellish winter.

...But still the clever north wind was not satisfied. It spoke to her of towns yet to be visited, friends yet to be discovered...

It is, isn't it?

This is one of those instances where the camera allows you to just borrow a scene for a while.

I agree...where was this taken? Is it Lake Mead?

And when you say it was too cold to leave the dock, how cold was it?

It's at Canyon Lake which is just east of Phoenix. Not far out the "Apache Trail."

Oh, it was brutal. Maybe 70, 75 tops! ;)

hi philmar, modded for IR means the IR light filter has been taken out and a replacement glass that allows the transmission of IR spectrum light is put in. I had the conversion done that allows for false colour, which can then also be converted to b&w. The shot above was taken near Mt Marmolada in Northern Italy, a beautiful area.

Surely you forgot the minus signs before the numerals, right? :lol: 70 is absolutely balmy to me.

The OP never said anything about snow or ice....

I mearly posted a winter shot. Of course here, we tend to treat summer just like folks back east and up north treat winter.

- Stay indoors
- Dress in layers
- Artificial temperature control (ok, so ours is A/C...)
- Dash from home to car to office to car to store to car to home

Not all that different really. :)

Interesting!!
I know that summers in hot humid places are equivalent to our winters for the same reasons you listed. I was in Hong Kong one summer and the heat/humidity was oppressive and one's life was exactly as you listed...indoors. But I never knew there existed people that lived that way when the temperature was in the 70's. I guess the summers there are hot but nice because the air is dry.
I remember going to Vegas in July - it was 114 degrees and locals were complaining. I didn't mind it because it had been around 95 degrees and humid as heck back home. te dry heat suited me fine. Similarly the dry cold of the Prairies (-20 degrees) doesn't seem as cold as a west coast humid cold (-5 degrees).
