I work most of my career in the N.W.T or the Arctic in industrial construction as a carpenter building Dimond mines and oil sands production as well as northern housing.  In most sever sub-zero conditions. But I have to admit to being  cold now at 10 degrees c.  I retired 5 years ago and slowly my tolerance for the cold has left me. Colinneil I can empathise although not  stuck in a chair as you are but not to mobile ether these days. But at least it won't last  as long as winters of  my childhood in Saskatchewan. but What I do appreciate very much is there are seasons here with remarkable temps differences. Scea your really made me laugh with your opening comment thanks for the smile and laugh. Although I am wearing a bit more clothing it still amuses me to a great extent at the arctic parkas I see moving around the village.

I lived in Canada for a while ,bloody cold Winnipeg wind chill -30

I think it's snowing in Mongolia and the wind off it is coming straight in my front door.

... agreed, it's surely a bit fresh right now, even been raining for the last 3 hrs down here in Phayao, not more than a drizzle at times but persistent ... @ 10 degrees and fairly windy the cats beha

Up at 0600hrs Scea and it was bloody cold.   I don't expect the wife will surface anytime soon. When she does she will be rugged up like an Eskimo.

Lucky you, weather just great for your morning walk.

Think about folk like me, who cannot move, sitting here in my chair freezing my nuts off.

Thermal socks, sweater, jacket with hood, and blanket wrapped around me, still perishing with cold.

Colin, Colin. Just have your missus sit in your lap. Works for me.

Silly a==e, what use would that be ?

No feeling below my chest, if she sat on my lap nothing would happen, not worked now for over 7 years.

Sorry Colin, I thought you were paralyzed but still had feeling. Every cloud has a silver lining, it also means you can't feel the catheter, doesn't it?

I was investigating whether the aircon in my condo was reverse cycle, no such luck.

Usually type at my keyboard in my jocks, two layers of clothing at this point and considering a third.

Fortunately my 2002 CR-V has a heater!!!

It has been equally cool in Sanpatong.

Back in the 1960s my mum bought a musquash jacket, it was very fashionable then but fell out of fashion in the 70s and hung in her wardrobe for the rest of her life. After her death, Iost track of it and assumed that it had gone to the Oxfam shop.

Yesetrday it reappeared on my youngest sister-in-law's back.

She who must has a sleeveless sheepskin jacket she bought in Germany back in the day.

Still the standout garment in the village when it makes it's yearly appearance.

She's also one of those people who still get into jeans they bought as a teenager.

Makes me sick....

I have 2 cats and everytime I sit here they arrive on my lap.  They have fur coats for gosh sakes.
