I so agree with this!!!! You can always add more layers or move around more to warm up. You can only take off so many clothes....

70 is too warm. 65 is perfect if the sun is not out. I like sweater weather. The sun is not my friend. I have to cover up and wear a hat too, which I don't like. 60-65 is my comfort zone. Us weather wimps are very picky. I remember the snow when I lived back east as a kid. Red galoshes over my shoes is what we wore. No comfy snow boots then. One time I was playing in deep snow, over the tops of my galoshes. It filled up my boots, melted a little, refilled, refroze, melted a bit more, refroze. After a while I couldn't feel my feet anymore, and I couldn't get my boots off. All that snow had packed in around my shoes and turned to ice. I remember my mom putting me in the bathtub and running warm water into my galoshes. Finally, with much tugging and uttering of naughty words (that usually only dad said), she pulled my feet out, chunks of icy snow flying, the shoes still stuck in the galoshes. I thought it was funny and didn't understand why mom was so mad (and maybe a little scared). Then my feet started stinging. Oh boy did I cry! After that, I was always very careful to keep my snow pants over the tops of my boots. I was 5 or 6. I can still feel how that hurt, like my feet were going to break off. Didn't know at the time that it was a good sign!
Snow is pretty, but the polar bears can have it!
By the time you're my age, you will have that narrowed down to 65°!
Fall is my favorite too. It's one thing I really miss, since we don't really get a nice fall in this part of California. It's dry and the ground is crunchy. And then it rains, if we're lucky, and the ground is mucky until the weeds start to grow. But we don't have to worry about snow in the winter, so I'm good with the trade off.
So which one did you choose? I like the first one, but only because it looks warmer for winter weather. They are both cute. Does Duckling have a preference? My fist son wore lots of adorable blue jean overalls. I saved them all since I figured either a boy or girl would be able to wear them in the future. Son #2 came along and would NOT wear overalls. He was about Duckling's age, and adamant about no overalls. Sheesh! I sold them at a yard sale.
I think a 4th chick has decided to be a cockerel. Her comb has a tinge of pink today. That only leaves 2 possible girls, and I am suspicious of one due to behavior. 4 out of 6 is bad, but 5 out of 6 is just not fair! And means I will probably have to hatch out a few more this spring.
