Not yet

Today is supposed to be warmer. After breakfast I checked the temperature and it was -8 [-22.2 C.] I guess we are not there yet.

I have to remember, however, that warmer is the comparative form of the adjective warm. It is a relative term. At least tonight we will not dip below zero for the first time since late last week and we will stay above zero for the rest of the week. We will be warmer today, just not warm.

The bright side of this improvement for me is that I will be more comfortable. The bright side for my readers is that they don;t have to listen to me whine about the temperature any more for a while.

Tom and I attended a seminar ten years ago to be on a panel. While there, he bought me this refrigerator magnet. I looked at it and said, "What's your point?"
When we moved, I tossed some of the refrigerator magnets but kept this one. I need all the daily reminders I can get about some things.

I'll whine, a bit.
It was 15 degrees when i woke up this morning.
Not your kinda cold, but cold for South Carolina!
And ... done sniveling.

the only reason I am sniveling about the cold (15F when I woke up this morning) is that it affects my asthma terribly. my lungs cannot handle it well.

IMHO, neither of you are sniveling!

That magnet says, "Thou shalt not snivel." It doesn't say anything about whining.
