Ready, Set ... COLD

What's really funny is as much as we think that's cold we get to see exapts wearing shorts and T's around Sultan Center. Now is it cold or what? I don't know anymore, all I know is make sure you wear everything on your way out and don't try to act like super-expats.

While I was home (England) over Christmas, it rarely got above 1c during the day. That's enough for a sweater and a warm jacket.

So the 15-16c I saw in Kuwait over the weekend's quite pleasant, not cold.

Sure, 8c driving to work this morning needs a sweater max.

Anyone wearing shorts should be shot though. I've seen some pretty rotten looking legs around.

When I moved into an apartment in Germany, my landlady told me the previous Americans "had even worn shorts and T-shirts in January!"

I soon learned why. We had in-floor heating, very efficient, so efficient we were dying from too much heat in the cold blasts of winter. We had no control over the thermostat, and they lived upstairs - I guess they didn't get as much heat as we did, because I was wearing shorts and t-shirts and they would be wearing sweaters. We had to open our windows, on the coldest days, to survive the heat!

Your prayers have been answered, with dust. :P

It is cold. They just immune to it. :/

LMAO @ "rotten looking legs"! xD
Yeah, at least a sweater, not shorts damn it!

la reine:

I heard it's snowing out there. :P

lol! That's out of control.

That reminds me of my old room, I used to always keep the heater tuned on so when I get back home on a cold day it's always warm inside (hot actually). ;)

Yep. Hope the dust comes down though.

Likewise here but without the umbrella.

You need to gain fat. :P

Salamat. You have a whole week. Just pray the dust comes off.

Exactly. :/
