You'd think anyone stepping outside for a few seconds when is it -20F they would realize it was cold. Someone from the desert southwest would be bundled up in a winter coat when it is 60F above zero so why are they worried about them?

Just one time standing/working in the ND winter will make anyone get the correct clothing. It gets D--- cold there

The record low in Flagstaff, AZ is -30F. The desert Southwest is not so warm as people think.

Evolution in action! Let's keep the folks who can figure it out without a special announcement around... and thaw the others out in April.

I was going to say the exact same thing, Bosshog. People from warmer climates are wimps when it comes to cold weather, so they'd be bundled up before it even reached 32F ABOVE zero. They'd probably call in sick to work if it reached zero. One good gulp of -20F air would tell you to head inside and put on more layers, or just stay inside. Unless you're from here. We bundle up and head out.

I do not know what is worse, the writing or the content? So the weather channel will no longer say it is cold outside when it is cold outside, huh? People from the south do not understand what it means to have subzero temps? They usually start wearing winter clothes in september to stay warm. At least that is my experience. Weather terrorists please go away. I expect better than this Strib.

Well, this decision will just about send the nannystaters over the edge. We NEED people to tell us that January in Minnesota is cold. How would they KNOW otherwise??

Sometimes it's the locals that don't have half a brain. Years ago, a teenager on my block got locked out of his house with an inadequate coat and hat in dangerously cold weather. He came to my door, and I immediately let him in while he called his parents to come home so he could get back into his own house. Turns out he'd tried to get help from three other people in the neighborhood who all turned their backs on him. Did they not care if he ended up injured or dead? Or we're they too stupid to recognize this kid was in dangerous circumstances? I dunno, but I sure lost a lot of respect for the folks who turned him away. They're cruel, stupid, or both.
