    What is considered a temperature that is cold to you?

    To me, anything below 70 degrees is considered cold for me.  Yes, I've been living in paradise all my life and used to the great weather here.

    We get aclimatized to hot and cold.  It is generally the rapid changes in temperature, one way or the other that causes the problems.  For example, I lived in Papua-New Guinea for two years where the temperature ranged between about 70 F to 82, max 84.  Then I came home to Australia in Aussie's mid summer.  It was around 90, pretty warm I thought.  Then the temperature dropped to around 50 that night and I felt very chilly.   

    On the other hand, I spent a year on sub-Antarctic Macquarie Island.  When we expeditioners arrived there we were clad in thermal underwear, woollen shirts, jumpers, windproof parkas, three pairs of socks et cetera.   We wondered why the guys we were relieving (the outgoing team who'd already spent a year there) were wearing just open necks shirts and pants and beanies.    But after a while that's how we, too, dressed on those occassions when the wind dropped.   

    Calm days were rare,of course, so we usually took our windproofs and wrapped up well if we were leaving the safety of the camp.

    If you live in the tropics, your blood thins out.  If you live perpeturally in the cold it thickens up.   However, here in Sydney where I live the temperatures fluctuate considerably but, in the main its a good average temperature with only a few days too hot (above 85 - yes and it can go up to 110 or more. But this is rare) and a few days just a little cold.   Say 40 with the occassional drop below freezing (32 F)

    I've never seen it snow in Sydney.  Though it does snow up on the mountains (about fifty miles) away for a few days of each year as a rule

    Wow, jaydawg808, 70 degress? That's funny. My limit is when I have to put on a coat and that would be 50 degrees and under. It also depends on the season. I'm comfortable at 40 degrees in the winter time. Anything under that it just uncomfortable, even with coat, hat, gloves, and scarf. Did I say I'm originally from Buffalo, New York? :-)

    I have to agree with Jan.  Being a New Englander, anything under 50 and requires a coat is cold.  Lately, the temps have required several layers of clothing or an Eskimo parka.

    I live in Wyoming, and have my whole life. When it dips below 0 (F), it's feeling fairly cold. I consider cold to be when I have to get out my down coat, it's more comfortable to wear gloves, and my legs start to get cold through jeans. That said, we get triple-digit summers. After the summer, even 40 feels cold until somewhere around October when I start to acclimate.

    I'd have to say that when it drops below 75, I start looking for the thermostat.
