Hello new friends, I assume you found me via [ profile] add_me

Random rant of the day, places which overheat during the winter in New York and how much energy they are probably using up. I have a whole collection of bulky sweaters which I'm haven't been using this year because it hasn't been that cold. Also there are so many places which when it gets cold outside, they feel the need to crank the heat up to a nice and toasty 85 degrees. Yes, it is nice to be warm, but I wonder how much energy is being wasted by keeping most places warm enough to wear short sleeves in the middle of the winter?

And oh yes, it is Valentine's day, for me the holiday will eternally be about those little "valentines" which got passed out in elementary school along with the classroom's Valentine's Day party, where people would bring in pink cupcakes and those chalky candy hearts.

And I think I need to wipe Desperate Housewives from the DVR once and for all, last season wasn't that bad, but this season the show keeps pulling soap trope after soap trope. Long lost children, with Gabby and Juanita, kidney donations, Bree becoming a totally different character, old men predictably dying.

Desperate Housewives is still on? Wow.

I dunno, you're not too far from me and I sure wouldn't say it hasn't been that cold outside! It was pretty frigid for a fair chunk of January. Still 85 is overkill, and you should get to wear your sweaters in winter!

Yes it is, the first few seasons weren't great, but weren't bad. However I sometimes find myself home with nothing to do on a Sunday night, and get curious to see what has been going on on that show. It has become laughably dreadful, but since ABC hasn't been having that much success with their new shows, there is a probability that it will be renewed for yet another season.

It was in the low twenties a few days in January, but we haven't have a string of single digit F, or below 20F temperatures during the day. For me sweaters now only come out when they are predicting record cold temperatures. Last year was significantly colder, and the sweater collection was used more.

I think I've seen exactly one episode of DH, so, ehh.

Does it actually get down to single-digits in the city? 'Cause it sure doesn't here. Teens, max. The first time I went to Vermont I found out what cold really was.

Never had a day in the single digits, perhaps late at night when I'm asleep, but I haven't heard of it being below 15 degrees at any point this winter.

I was speaking more generally. NJ gets temps in the teens, but never single digits (well, maybe overnight, but I'm not out then!). I've been here for almost 15 years, and lived in PA my whole life before that, and the first time I ever experienced single digit temps was three years ago in Vermont.

There are always a few days or weeks out of the year when it is bitterly cold, days upon days of highs in the teens. Every year when I was young, I remember that there would be one extra cold day of single digit temps. It wasn't a common occurrence, but kind of like a blizzard, or an extreme heatwave.
