It's a strange kind of cold for me. I am used to below freezing temperatures outside so the 30s and 40s seem mild in the winter (50 here today, could not believe it). I just can never get warm. When I studied abroad here I brought my huge, marshmallow-style coat. It was January, you need warm coats in Ohio. It was so mild that I ditched the heavy coat within 2 weeks. Can't say I miss the prospect of the polar vortex, though.
