I tend to daven as early as possible, because I leave to work very early (especially on Chol HaMoed, as I need to leave early on Erev Yom Tov, so I make up the time by coming in early). This also means I eat breakfast very early.
This morning, my outdoor thermometer said it was barely 40 degrees outside! I thought it was supposed to be warmer than that, but it didn’t feel it! I went out to my sukkah with my jacket on, but still, after a few minutes, my teeth started chattering. I couldn’t eat like that. Regretfully, I took my breakfast back inside, and ate there.
I need to dig up my small plug-in heater, and bring that outside with me tomorrow if it’s still needed. Did anyone else have this problem today?September 24, 2013 4:26 pm at 4:26 pm #976209Bookworm120Participant
Last night was so cold I stayed inside. Kudos to you for sticking it out this morning!
I highly recommend wearing a warm sweater under your jacket too, and eat lots of oatmeal. I had that for breakfast today.September 24, 2013 9:05 pm at 9:05 pm #976210Burnt SteakParticipant
I love this weather. One of my favorite memories of sukkos was everyone eating in the sukkah while there was some snow on the ground.September 24, 2013 10:57 pm at 10:57 pm #976211mariokartMember

DaMoshe where do you live that it was 40 degrees outside?
If I could afford to move, I’d want to move there.
I love the cold. I am always far too hot in Summer (usually in late Spring and early Fall, too.) and wish I could live somewhere where the hottest Summer day was about 60 degrees.September 25, 2013 5:42 am at 5:42 am #976213SaysMeMember

SaysMe, some places can get up to 80 degrees in Summer and the places that stay 20 degrees colder do not as far as I know, have any kind of Jewish community.
Well OK, I don’t know of any decent size Jewish community anywhere at all in Alaska, actually.September 25, 2013 11:42 am at 11:42 am #976215DaMosheParticipant
Torahrocks: in NJ, but I’d rather not say exactly where.
This morning, I checked again. Online, Yahoo Weather said it was 54 in my area. My outside thermometer said 44. It felt more like 44.
