I moved back to upstate NY a few months ago. Today, it's 50 degrees outside. I'm watching football wearing long yoga pants, a long-sleeved t shirt and a fuzzy bathrobe--on the couch under a blanket.

I'm in trouble, right?


I solemnly swear that I am up to no good.

Oh yeah, LTHM and Chicho, but I'd be in the same position if I were on Long Island (from which this IS upstate NY )

It was 31 here this morning and I thought that I should probably look into fixing the zipper on my fall jacket

Our neighbors had an outdoor Halloween party last night

Anything over the Tappanzee Bridge is upstate, just sayin'.

I'm sitting here in sweatpants, thermal shirt under another thermal shirt with sleeves that come over my hands (the kind with the thumbhole) under a down vest, and socks of course.

Technically it's not winter yet .

So, to answer the question of the original poster...yes, you are in trouble!

Last night I volunteered to help with a Trick or Treat Nature Trail at a local state park. To my great relief, I was assigned an indoor role, but I had dressed (I thought) for the evening outside weather.

I probably would have died. It was in the high 30s and started sleeting and snowing before the evening ended. I'm going to have to think these activities through in the future.

Our 'mowing' this morning was blowing the 3 feet of leaves we had covering our driveway and deck into the woods.

See, we're still mowing here!!!

Aww Sad, you're in trouble lol. I walked out last night with a tank top and one of those shrug sweaters that only cover your back and arms (3/4 sleeves), open top shoes, and some jeans. It felt chilly but once I got walking I was good. I sleep with the windows open and a thin sheet (I have a thing about having to be covered when I sleep), my thermostat is turned to 60 (lowest setting) when I am alone in the house, and I was wondering why it's not colder yet. I love this city

We in Western NY divide the state in many more districts that just Up/Down...

*We have WNY which is approx Syracuse & west (Rochester/Buffalo)

*We have CNY (central)which is pretty much the center of the state (Syracuse - Albany)

*Then there is Upstate - Adirondack area etc.

*Finally downstate - any & all areas of NYC/LI, east of Albany, and areas on the eastern side of the state that do not fall neatly into any of the other categories.

Snow sighting last Thursday! One September we(Canadians) went to North Carolina. All the locals were complaining about how cold it was. We were swimming in the ocean

For those who don't bleed black and gold, Bergeron is the ironman and toughest SOB in hockey, Bruins center Patrice Bergeron. He played game 6 of the Stanley Cup finals with a broken rib, torn rib cartilage and a pierced lung.

Glad to hear that SOME of you know what REAL snow is! I lived over 5 years in Syracuse, NY. The SNOWIEST METROPOLITAN AREA in the continental US. People always think Buffalo gets more snow.

Plus, I think the five years I lived there had three of the top snowiest winters EVER (at that time). Too fucking much for this California gal.

One January I heard on the tv news that we were heading into our 32nd day with "no measurable sunshine". We were gone by the end of the year.

I know a lot of you Canucks have seen much worse. I'm just sayin'. An hour out of NYC is NOT "upstate"!

The opposite can be true too. My nephew visited Phoenix in mid-winter where it felt VERY warm compared to upstate NY when he left. It felt so warm that he put on swim trunks and got in the hot tub of his friend's apartment complex one evening. Several residents in jackets walked past, saw him there and one said, "Dude, you ain't from around here are you?"

And on one late January visit to Vegas, it felt wonderfully warm to us, so the first thing we did was shed our coats and toss them in the trunk of the rental car with the luggage. The attendant who brought us to the car and the one who checked the paperwork before letting us out of the lot were wearing parkas, toques and gloves!
