    Doing so will help keep this thread on topic by separating the political reactions from weather and infrastructure aspects. There will inevitably be gray areas where those subjects overlap, and it's up to each individual poster to decide if what they want to say is on topic or off topic since many threads on SLF wander all over the place anyway.
    Dear GP, threads go off the original post more often than not as I have learned over the years. Most often, I have discovered more different viewpoints than I had ever imagined were possible. That is my delight in this website as well as, I confess, the frustration at times. Just go with the flow as none of us controls how the thread will evolve and take none of it personally.

    My apologies---I guess I had not scrolled back far enough to the beginning of the thread. Carry on....or not. Personally I always think it's interesting to observe how the thread winds and twists. Sometimes you'd never guess where it started by looking at the end. It's the nature of the forum.
    My therapist told me the way to achieve true inner peace is to finish what I start. So far today, I have finished two bags of M&Ms and a chocolate cake. I feel better already!

    It got up to twenty degrees in my little Wisconsin city today, and there are kids walking around in shorts.

    Exactly. No one has any real control over which direction a thread goes or how far off topic it gets. That's why my request was a request.

    When I was in high school in Denver a friendís younger brother decided to wear shorts all winter one year. That seemed like a bad idea but he survived.

    Itís interesting. Ted Cruz left Texas for Cancun today. Governor abbot is making up shit about the evils of green energy causing all their problems. And Beto has mobilized volunteers to check up on seniors and such. Maybe trump will show up to toss some paper towels at people or something.

    Sorry George, I know you wanted to keep this thread focused on weather, but getting people to follow that kind of instruction is like trying to herd cats.

    I saw a kid walking yesterday - I assume, home from an in-school day - in shorts. It was COLD outside! I'm way past that as I want to be warm. LOL.

    DH wears shorts until Thanksgiving and goes back to them in early spring. He looks weird in pants, but now that we're in VT and he's getting older, he has succumbed to wearing them most of the winter. His friends always make fun of him, and once he got in trouble for wearing pink shorts at church, but he loves his shorts. I figure it's something in his DNA as a kilt-wearing Scotsman.

    Just the opposite here...too many years in hot weather. My nickname is three pants woman - tights, thermals, sweats. We keep the thermostat at 63 during the day and 55 at night so layering keeps me comfortable.
