I moved to TN from WY so I had an idea what cold is. One year, back in the 60's, I spent three days snowed in in a tent up in the Tetons. The warmest it got was -20 with a howling wind. Thank God for Coleman fuel, sterno and elk stew. Have never been that cold since and dang sure don't want to. Still have a couple places that peel every winter from the frostbite.
I have come to like lows in the 30's and highs in the 70's. 19 here this morning with 1/2 inch of snow. I'm heading for AL in an hour.
