    When the temperature hits minus 20 and the wind picks up...... then start talking about cold... LOL but then again, I still have my down parka, sleeping bag and the requisite "Arctic survival gear" So when it does get cold we light a candle and head for the down comforters, power outage or not.

    I used to be like that but after 35 years in Texas I am something of a born again Texan. So when temps dip below 40 I get a bit cold. Then again, my new bride is Texan born and raise. I needed to take care of the fanily first so we got a hotel room for the night. since we got power back i have offered the warmth of my house to any friend that is still without.
