For of those that know me personally, you will know that I am not a big fan of winter, despite (or rather because of) growing up in Alaska. I've been known to shiver at anything below 70 degrees. When people ask me why I moved to Austin, I credit the warm climate.
For the past week of so, it's been cold though. Not really cold, just about 50 degrees. I remember winters from my childhood where it reached -50 degrees, and we would still have to go to school. On days like that, it was so cold that science inclined teachers would sacrifice a pot of coffee to show the effects of differing temperatures.
Thankfully, it'll never get that cold in Austin.
