Permanent Hot Flash?

Ok - someone needs to explain to me what exactly has happened to me. Seriously.

It's 39 degrees outside and I have my front door open letting in the fresh air. I did the same thing for a few hours yesterday.

I've even caught myself running out without a coat. For cryin' out loud.

Was it just a year ago that I was wearing my winter coat, in Florida, when it was 50 degrees? Was it just a year ago that I did nothing but bitch and complain when the temps dropped to - horrors - 70?

I don't even run the heater in my car half the time.

This is just beyond weird. Oh, I figured I'd acclimate sooner or later, but never, in all my life did I think it would be this fast. Or this well.

I grew up in the midwest of shits sake. I've always HATED the cold. I've never been happy unless it was 80 degrees and I was runnin' around barefoot.

I thought your tolerance for cold got worse as you got older.

I don't know what's happened but it's scarin' me!!!!

I think it's completely normal. When you are used to gray blustery windy 19 degrees, 40 with sunshine feels absolutely balmy! Whoohoo Spring! :)

35 is T-shirt weather. 40 is Shorts and snowboots if snow is still on the ground, otherwise shoes or sandels.

No! Say it isn't so!! It's time for you to move back down here!!! Next thing you know, you'll be complaining that 95 degrees with 100% humidity is hot...
