Im cold and this weather sucks 2011/12

Forum rules
We hope that the Living in Taiwan forum will be of value to you and others. To ensure this, please note:

It is best to capitalize topics and to avoid vague titles. “Hi, I’m new” and “Help please” are examples of bad titles.

Before posting, please check the FAQ thread, and – more importantly – use the search function to ensure that your topic has not been discussed before and that there is not an existing thread you could update with your contribution.

While Living in Taiwan is a busy, wide-ranging forum, there are other specific forums for relationships, teaching, business, legal issues, animals, food, events, travel, restaurants, and so on. Check the Forumosa menu to find the most appropriate place for your post.

While it is preferable to post questions dealing with dissimilar topics in separate threads (“How Much for an Apartment in Tianmu?”, “Are There Many Foreigners in Tianmu?”), if you are a new arrival, it is possible to present numerous questions in one post, but realize that your thread will then, after two weeks, be merged into the New to Taiwan: Some Questions thread.

You're not alone. We had a sprinkling this morning and it's definitely a bit nippier than yesterday. Still, not that cold. And at least it's not weekend. :D

Second of all, as in all honeymoons, all is well until it is not. It is until the unexpected happens that you will see all grievances surface -ask anyone in any relationship.

I really feel for any of you guys who have to drive a scooter. I mean, without wind, this kind of temperatures are even pleasant. But as soon as there is some breeze -and actually, when I came back from lunch, there was a strong wind- then it gets pretty unpleasant. :eek:

Office apparently turned on the heating system. I feel lucky, but a bit over, you know?

11 is not pleasant. I think the human body prefers between 20 to 25c (i prefer 25c to 28 c)

Tommy, I was born in a place 2500 meters above sea level, where average temp is 20 degrees all year long. 11 is OK with me. 25 is a hot mid summer day. 28 is a horrific heat wave.

I'm with tommy on that one. 25-28 is just right.

My apartment always seems to be a day behind the weather. It's quite cozy in here and I am walking around in bare feet without the heat on.
