Because 55 degrees really is cold!

In southwestern PA, 46 degrees on February 10 is "milder." In Tucson, Arizona 55 degrees on February 10 is cold. I'll take the AZ cold over the PA mild!

HAPPINESS is where we find it, but rarely where we seek it.

Staying in the house breeds a sort of insanity

"We must go out and re-ally ourselves to Nature every day. We must take root, send out some little fiber at least, even every winter day. I am sensible that I am imbibing health when I open my mouth to the wind. Staying in the house breeds a sort of insanity always. Every house is in this sense a hospital. A night and a forenoon is as much confinement to those wards as I can stand. I am aware that I recover some sanity which I had lost almost the instant that I come abroad."
- Henry David Thoreau - (July 12, 1817 – May 6, 1862) American author, poet, philosopher
