If a cold wind blows ...
I must've been a Canadian, or denizen of the U.S. Northern Plains, in a former life. I LOVE this kind of weather: blowy (70 mph gusts!), COLD and wet, with a chance of sleet! Woo hoo!
What's the weather like where you are? Is it your kind of weather? What kind of weather do you prefer?
I like days like the one you're having when I get to stay home all day and watch it. :)
Got to try out my new Columbia coat on the walk to work this morning, which was straight into that northern wind. Was grinning like a fool the whole time.
I love Indian Summer. Cool and a little balmy before winter finally turns to snow.

And how in the name of long underwear can you like cold prairie winds freezing your tuckus off?
Me? I love it when it's 106 and I'm tramping around the Tallgrass Prairie preserve or sumpin'. Hold the deer ticks, please.
Course, I'm ex-pat, and perhaps the mists of memory are a bit too halcyon. But I don't think so....
