Why is it so cold everywhere???

If you're a frequent reader here you might have caught in my last TT (sorry there won't be one this week as I've got guests coming over and no time) that DH & I were freezing cold at many of the places that we visited on our Vacation.

And it's not just in Virgina that we are cold...it seems that every time we go inside a building that it is cold. We weren't cold before (okay, that was years ago)...so what seems to be the problem now?

I have a friend who seems to think that perhaps if I put a little more meat on my bones that I wouldn't be cold all the time. I'm not aneorexic and I'm not unhealthy (ask my doctor that I hardly ever visit) so I'm not putting on weight to stay warm...sorry. And even when I was heavier (stuck in Korea fat) I was still cold...so I'm not buying that argument at all.

DH has taken classes in heating and air conditioning (HVAC...I don't know what the V stands for!) and we have noticed that in many buildings they have the registers placed too close to eachother. So that's part of the problem...everywhere you go there's cold air shooting down on you...burrr!

And I'm not the only one who feels this way. My mom brings a coat (in the middle of summer) with her when she goes out to wear inside...okay, yeah mom is built like me too...but she can't be the only one.

Anyone else cold inside buildings? Chime in...

  1. I guess I've never really noticed it since I'm always so hot. People tease me that I'm pre-menopausal.

  2. I'm cold no matter where I go! I always am. I freeze at work! I wear layers! I hate cold weather and air conditioning! I like being warm!

  3. Being too cold is not too much of a problem for me...I wear a permanent fur coat. In the summer, I just demand the air conditioning be cranked. If my agent gets too cold? Whatever...who is the boss here?

  5. I just always bring a long an extra layer just in case I get cold! I think people generally like it a little colder than warm I guess?

  6. I'm cold as well. I think it's because they set the temp at 50 inside. When it's 80 outside and 50 inside, you're bound to get cold while inside. I always take extra jackets/sweaters/etc. just to keep warm.

  7. I think the "V" is for ventilation...I don't know. I just made that up. :)

    The older I get the hotter I get...I'm in a 24 hour hot flash.

  8. I used to have that problem when I worked in government buildings occupied by the military (I dunno, but they always did this), so I had to wear a jacket to work in Hawaii. But now that I've moved to the northern climes, I'm always too hot. I could do with some fall weather.

  9. My husband works in a large office building (40+ floors) and was COLLLLDDD last week. (I can count on my hand the number of times he has been cold) His theory is is that heat hasn't been turned on yet to adjust to the chilly temperatures.
