semi-desert conditions... 100+ temps common... heat doesn't bother me much. Or it didn't used too. These days I can't tolerate it as well.

But my point is: When I see movies where the people in the movies have to deal with extreme heat... stranded in a desert for example... I think, "hell, I could do that easily".

But as for 'cold'... it has snowed here at my home ONE time...1962. We seldom drop below freezing... so when I see in a movie people having to deal with cold... I can't imagine it.

The coldest day I ever suffered, (I think, I may have been in colder conditions)... was in New Jersey. Belmar, to be exact... and 1 block from the ocean. It was snowing, it was windy, and I don't remember what the temperature was but I do remember that with the 'wind chill factor' it was -17. Facing into the wind was unbearable. They always say extreme cold is like knives being driven into you... and it's true.

BUT... 21Dog and I have both noted on this board, (a few times)... that we have a 'type' of cold that although much higher in temperature than your cold... above freezing, may be MORE miserable.

We used to get heavy, HEAVY fog... so heavy you can't drive. Sitting at football game in those conditions is the most 'miserable' I've ever been... even more miserable than that -17 day in Belmar.
