Too d**n hot

My son and his girlfriend think I'm weird because I like to keep the
house at a freezing (to them) 70 degrees. (My wife understands though.
She's from Buffalo.) I'll admit that, for southeast Virginia, that's
colder than most people's houses.

What brought this on? I stumbled
across the weather forecast for where my parents live: Today - Hi: 73, Lo: 49. (Hint: the hi there for today is the lo here for the week.)

In other words, I grew up where you wear shorts in the low 60's and sweat heavily in the low 70's. If it wasn't for air conditioning, I probably wouldn't live below 1,000 feet above sea level or south of Pennsylvania.
