    The guy who isn't even wearing a hat makes my head ache just looking at him. We have underfloor heating, and it's especially nice in our tiled bathrooms and kitchen.

    I am feeling better now almost a whole 3 days of being sick.. Saturday till Tuesday night.. But I'm great now.. So glad I had the vaccines and there was not even a problem.. Chilly isn't that bad I have a heat problem.. I usually keep my air conditioner on at 69 or 70 when home since my apartment building tries to keep the temperature in my apartment in the winter at 78 or higher.. 78 just makes me sick with the meds I'm on. Summer I keep my apartment at about the same temperature.. So it's about the same year round I do use more air conditioning in the summer.

    We got some more rain during the night, which is a little annoying because things were just starting to dry out after the rain a few days ago.

    At least out here in the desert, it really is remarkable how much of a difference the sun makes in how hot it feels. I can be cold when it's a certain temperature outside in the dark, but comfortable in the same temp when the sun is out.

    If I had to guess because I've never really looked at a thermometer I would say once it start to drop into the single digits of degrees C I might start to feel colder. But what about the opposite when do people start to feel hot? I suspect humidity might come into this one.

    I feel like there's a radical difference between Vancouver in Winnipeg.

    I'm from newfoundland, so it's unless it's -20 or colder I'm not wearing gloves/hat. -18 C or 0 farhenhite without a windchill is basically when the weather to me goes from mild to freezing.

    Wind chills of -30 is when I start getting nervous about being outside. Newfoundland doesn't get that cold often and it rarely gets that warm. Room temperature for me is 20 to 15 degrees. I lose my mind being around people who put the thermostat at 25 C. Keep in mind almost no one in newfoundland has AC and it is extremely humid. I've suffered through the worst heat of my life living in st john's. It's maybe on a hot night only 25 outside. But the humidity is at 100 percent and our housing is built for the cold, so it can easily be a humidex of 40 c in those old scenic rowhouses.

    I live in ontario/always have AC and for me it rarely gets cold, in contrast I spent the summer in the 40c+ during BC's heatwave it was insane. It wasn't so unpleasant in the shade, but being under direct sun felt like you're in the midst of a nuclear explosion. Humid heat dampens the sun rays, while extreme dryness makes it feel like you're getting an instant headache.

    That being said I know people from winnipeg and -30 is a massive nothing. It's the -40 range when they "start to get nervous".

    No doubt there is, given the country is so vastly varied from end to end. Naturally it's never going to be the same everywhere, which makes weather forecasts so useful. Otherwise you could shout the weather down to someone else.

    I live in a city surrounded by lakes, so I know what you mean. Lots of humidity here, both in winter and summer, and add windchill and it can get pretty extreme.

    Yeah, we do get it cold! Even in the last few days, along with humidity and windchill, it's felt like -40. It gets too cold to do much of anything. And the nice days are spent snowshoeing.

    If it's dry, I'm usually OK until around 100ºF, but if the humidity gets above around 10%, I start getting uncomfortable a lot sooner, probably around the low 90s.
    When I do my bike rides in the summer 100º is pretty much my cut off point, which can be a challenge since there are some days where it's already in the 80s by around 7:00AM, my bike rides usually take around 1 1/2 to 2 hours, and it warms up fast.
