Why's the warmest day when it's snowing tho 😩

It's always a bit warmer when it snows.

One thing is for sure, it's too cold for my water pipes, they froze this morning, and now I have to go down to the cellar and warm those fuckers up.
It's single digits here in WI all week. I have a little bank ramp and quarter pipe in a shed, and also recently got a pellet burning stove. It's just enough room to move around in, I'd suggest it as otherwise I'd be going crazy.

Anything lower than 40, raised on SoCal so NorCal weather sucks and being too cold takes more time to warm up and I get unmotivated and just want to stay home

Also are we not pointing out that straight was mid call?

Duuuuuude c'mon. 40F is friggin' warm as shit when you're on the East Coast! T-shirt weather!

40 is decent but definitely not t-shirt weather haha

It's not really the actual temperature that bothers me, its the fucking wind.

Currently -27 where I am. I've skated flatground in -10ish but can't do it for long since everything tightens up

yep, -10 is about the magic number in canada. We bring lil propane torches to keep your trucks loose. hurts like fuck if you slam too, like 100 times worse than normal

slams are the worst in cold weather, also tend to crack my board way more.
me and friends will still bring rails and boxes to underground lots still.

A guy I grew up skating with and skate with still did this 2 winters ago, 360 flip in -30


Sick!  You in winterpeg? I see ya rocking that green apple son! Respect

Yeah I try to back mike and the shop as much as possible, he introduced me to so many people who I now skate with and even though I'm not nearly as good as him or guys that skate for the shop, ill skate with them during the summer

I second this. uniqlo heattech is great for the cold. when I lived in NYC I skated in 2 degree weather as long as it was dry. wearing a hat, hoodie and jacket is essential for me when I skate in the cold. once you get warmed up, itís not bad. I mostly just cruise around when itís cold. also, before you head out, itís good to do some pre-skate warming up indoors - dynamic stretches and what not.

Chances are I've skated with you then. If not, I'll see you this summer. And Mike is an awesome dood, and green apple is awesome too

Now that I'm in my 40's, 30*F or so will make me not even think about going skating. Usually ice and snow is a bigger deterrent than temp. In my 20's though it was very common to find a parking garage, sweep it out and session with friends until 1:00-2:00 in the morning regardless of temperature. You'd start off bundled up and and freezing. But after a while, you would get hot and it was down to t-shirts and pants. Steam billowing off of every inch of exposed skin. Have some great memories of those sessions because I think everyone that was there was focused because of the conditions we were dealing with. Anyway, to answer the op's question... 30*s turns me into a chump these days.

It was 70F today in Orange,CA and I saw a dude in a trench coat and beanie that wasn't a burglar or homeless.  Go figure.
