Vox Populi

What’s the coldest you’ve ever been?

I ran in the cross-country NCAA championships and it was negative 30, and we all had to wear shorts. It was cold.

Yesterday [Jan. 16] walking to work.

Walking down Michigan Avenue in Chicago one day in February. It was colder than a well digger’s ass.

1991 in Washington state. It was 26 below and we were deer hunting. We went out 300 yards and called it the day.

This morning [Jan. 17] when my truck wouldn’t start.

It was at Steamboat Springs in 2001. It was negative 21.
