Is the thermometer broken?

Part of Husband's job involves working at Lambeau Field on game days. He was on the field a few weeks ago along with a team from (ahem) the Southern realm of the NFL. He was dressed for what we called Moderate Cold Weather, but the guys from down south had a hard time dealing with the change in temperature from the blue skies of home.

In a case like this, we Northerners take pride in our toughness, our knowledge of how to dress, our attitudes in dealing with extreme weather.

One of the Southern Staffers caught a glimpse of a thermometer and threw (in my teen's words) a total fit. "It's so cold there's no temperature!"

It was Zero Degrees Fahrenheit.


I hesitate to imagine how he would deal with the concept of wind chills below zero.
