One of my fave anecdotes is from college. Was in a service frat (required community service hours per month) while at tUMD. Nat’l convention down in Dallas, the week between Christmas and New Year’s. It was about 45-50 down there. We’re wearing shorts, t-shirts, etc.

They honestly thought we were nuts. They were in heavy jackets and such. They really didn’t believe the stories they had heard, until they met us.

My wife and I vacationed in Scottsdale a number of years ago, and played golf on a beautiful, sunny, 70 degree day right around Christmas. We were shocked to discover that we were the only golfers on the course wearing shorts and short-sleeve golf shirts. No doubt everyone we came across wearing pants and sweaters thought we were the nutty ones!

This same weekend in Vegas several years ago. Stepped outside a casino in Jeans, Polo Shirt and had a denim jacket.

Lots of other people had full on winter jackets, zipped up and shivering while I was standing there taking my jacket off because I was starting to sweat.

I’d guess it was about 60-65.
