    I'd rather be cold than hot. :)

    It is extreme weather temps coming and going that my body does not seem to like or adjust well to. If the cold weather would just even out and stay pretty level all winter then my body would have an easier time adjusting. But these up and down temps throw my whole body thermometer out of whack and make me feel miserable.

    I don't seem to notice temp changes. My husband did though.

    There's no real cause to when I have pain and when I don't. I am sore after PT but never the next day but the day after that and that's been a pattern.

    In researching the topic, I found out that high elevations and much lower humidity than is here, is much better for any kind of arthritis pain. I also read that some Seniors, who are visiting any of the mountain States, completely lose any arthritis pain they had where they live. Cold weather can affect arthritis pain, but low elevations and high humidity affect arthritis pain much, much more. Neither of us experienced any arthritis pain during the winters we lived in Colorado at 6,000 feet. Since it's been 10 years since we lived on The Front Range, we'll see.

    My brother in law lives in Colorado and he has some arthritis, I'm not sure what elevation they're at but he's only 57.

    I just talked to my brother and SIL who live just out of Savannah , GA. They got about an inch of snow then sleet and freezing rain forming a sheet of ice and then another three inches of snow. That's practically unheard of there. The last time they had any snow at all was 1998.

    Could this be Global Warming? :rolleyes:

    @Ken Anderson ... maybe you should buy a ride on mower and a huge flat screen TV. :)

    Yeah, I don't think that would have worked on our storm, though. Besides, an actual snowblower would make more sense for me to have than a riding lawnmower.​

    It's warm and raining today. I think we're having an Elizabeth Warren summer.

    The snow is all down here in the South, @Ken Anderson . We don’t like it and I would be quite happy for you to have it back up north where snow belongs.
    We started out the day around 60, and now it is trying hard to spit out those little snow bullets at us, and it is below freezing and going down fast.

    Quite a lot of our snow has melted and is still melting. It's going to be awfully slippery once the temperatures get low enough.
