In that weather, Id still be wearing shorts and a shirt. It is warm compared to how cold it could get up here in Alberta. In the winter, it could get as cold as -50 C with the windchill...So cold, that after a few seconds, one cannot feel their nose.

I intensely dislike the cold. Where I live, we have long, cold winters. 73F does not sound bad to me at all. In my part of the world, the average daytime winter temperature is around
20F. At this moment, it is 32F outside.

I hate the cold. I feel the cold really easily even when others still feel quite warm.

I can tolerate the mid-high 70s indoors, outdoors 60 something to 90 is okay, even when it's humid (like it always is here).

I'm most comfortable in the kind of environment most people call "stuffy". I've never seen why they think it's a bad thing.

Ya waiting at a bus stop in -50c, or having a bbq nothing can be more canadian then that, its weird we may b***h about the cold weather but its really not as bad as it sounds, I grew up in northern Alberta and would go ice fishing with my family, the temp on some mornings was in the -60c range, I never once gotten frostbite

I am used to temps between 62 and 65. At night we turn the stat down to 60 and use p.j. and covers to keep warm. It saves on fuel.

The only thing that I don't like about the cold is when it gets cold enough that I have to go outside and plug my vehicle in because it is so cold it won't start. I never tried waiting for a bus since I drive, but it does get annoying when the truck won't start and I have to plug it in and wait. Also scraping ice and snow off the windshield when it is snowing and blowing isn't that fun either. Driving on icy roads is not fun either.....especially the road between Wetaskiwan and Camrose in Whiteout conditions. The cold does not bother me as much as what will the roads be like today?

I hate the cold, and I am of ethnic makeup of small, fine boned people who lived in tropical heat, so my body is not made for it. When I lived in Europe, I was always wrapped up in so many layers, I looked ridiculous compared to the Europeans who were in one smart coat, scarf and hat.
