Maybe it's just US Magazine that thinks the 40s are cold
Here they go again. US 12/19/05 says, "Despite the frigid mid-40-degree temp, Mariah Carey bared all at an autograph signing in London on Dec. 4." While Mariah probably is cold in her belly shirt (pictured in magazine), I still think the 40s are hardly frigid.
The US caption writer must be from a tropical clime.
Park City, UT in 1 degree F temperature, waiting while three "not in service" buses passed us and confirming my ski gloves were not very effective. Now THAT'S frigid.
By the way, I had no problem wearing skirts in the ski town environment. My warm boots and thermal tights did the job.
