Wether these temps are "normal" or not, the feeling of cold is relative.
I get a chuckle every time I go to SoCal in the winter. They are usually wearing hats and jackets and gloves. I am walking around in shorts, tank top and flip flops.
Cold is relative to what you have just climatized too.
For me, right now, cold would have to be -20 celsius or more. We just came out of much colder, so above that "feels" warm.
For somebody in SoCal, with the previous average temps of 70 or so, getting even close to 32ish F is cold.
Same can be said for heat, I'm pretty sure most from SoCal would laugh when I say it's too bloody hot at 24 Celsius....

So since it is winter time again (like so many other times throughout history due to the earths seasons) you feel it is so urgent of a matter to which deserves its own thread to warn others here to stock up on warmer underwear?
I do not know how to say this more politely, but your threads just get worst and worst in a manner indicating mental deterioration is actively progressing quickly in your cranium.
I mean that is as much seriousness as you seem to mean in your urgent warning to all others to stock up on warmer underwear.
Jeez, whats the next thread of yours going to be about. Cripes sakes....

I live near Atlanta, GA & I have noticed over the past few years, the winters seem to be getting colder here. I can remember up until about 5 years ago, the temperature would be about 60-70 degrees F on Christmas Day and we hardly ever got any snow. Now it snows a few times a year (it doesn't stay on the ground long, but still). I personally do not like thermals, but I do wear layers on my upper body, so if it warms up enough during the day, I can just take off a jacket. But, I don't think it's going to be a mini ice age because the summers seem to be getting hotter... Here in Georgia, there is no spring or fall, just summer & winter (temperature-wise).
