Objectively, here north of Boston at least, not really so bad for mid-January. But it’s been so AGW-induced not-cold so far this winter that the dogs aren’t lingering when they go out in the back yard… and when I carry the 17-year-old down the steps, neither do I.
Mostly it’s the dreaded wind chill:
you, weak and coddled: omg it is so cold in NYC today!!
me, who has grown strong in the bitter winds of Michigan in my youth: …i am not even gonna front you right it is cold as hell

it's just about 'feeling the wetness of your eyeballs freeze every time you blink' before wind chill

Here in Michigan the low temp cutoff for elementary school recess is 15 degrees. My 6th grader did not participate the first time that happened (no gloves) ?
