I lost a bundle of money that day, but kept a cool head about it.
Given the choice between extreme heat and frigid cold, I prefer the latter. I would rather dress in layers than nothing at all. The humidity usually makes me delirious.
I see the L Street Brownies and Polar Bears taking their New Year’s plunge in the ocean and having a grand old time. A buddy of mine does not own a long-sleeved shirt. He dresses for summer in the middle of winter.
My neighbor is usually found shoveling snow in shorts. He must be thick-skinned. The mere sight of him makes me shiver. When some people don’t like the weather, they blame their friends or the meteorologist.
In the long run, I suppose, you can usually predict what the weather will be by what plans you’ve made.
