    I have to put my favorite ones away in the winter because they get so cold it about shocks me when I go to take a drag. Especially when I am outside. I figure in a few weeks I can get them back out. I really miss them in the winter. Am I the only one who does this?

    I don't. I keep my mod in a pocket or in my hand, so it doesn't get very cold.

    Yeah, me neither. My pacifiers are always at room temperature.

    When those rare times out in the cold come, I make sure my PV(s) are nestled next to me to retain body heat. I have not had a "cold" drip tip in a while.

    No, no. Don't do that. Just wait till the summer and ask him what it's like to have humidity so high the cockroaches can fly and a heat index that makes people delirious in the time it takes to check the mail.

    Or say "Wait... what's a hurricane?"

    Or take it out on me, I live in NoCal.

    What's "sleet"? When the rain freezes over what shapes are the drops?

    Winter is a season that northerners have. It is supposedly from November to April and they have to deal with snow (some white, cold, precipitation that you apparently have to shovel). I've heard rumors of its existance, but I don't leave Florida except during Ultra Summer.

    Florida has four seasons too. Fallish, Springish, Summer and Ultra Summer.

    That said even if I lived in a colder climate I would unlikely not use my stainless steel drip tips. I would relegate them to my "stays at home" devices though.

    Haha, "Ultra Summer." Dead on.

    It's a lot like this "Winter" in some ways. There's definitely a heavy feeling if you try to go outside... ...it only takes about 30 seconds for the sweating from the radiation sickness to begin.

    The thing is... you can only take so much of your clothing off, but you can always put more on. At least you people with cold seasons don't have to take a shower just to come back inside. You just take your jackets, scarves, hats, and what have you off.

    I was thinking about this myself, and in my head this is what I pictured:

    Actually wearing cloths during ultra summer helps in staying cooler. However, you have to know how to wear the cloths and which cloths to wear. This means wearing loose fitting clothing made of a natural fiber in a light color. Cotton is actually best for this. The idea is that your sweat is absorbed by the fabric and evaporates as much as possible thereby keeping you cooler. Also not getting sunburned helps immensely.

    But the best way of staying cool during ultra summer is to not go outside if you don't have to.

    The cockroaches can fly regardless of the season. They also get as big as small rodents too.

    As for getting delirious in the time to check the mail...thats what you get for venturing outside during the heat of the day. Which in Ultra summer is from 8am to 8pm.

    YES Funny you should post this. I just switched my drip tip to a plastic one. The SS ones are very cold. I live in Northern MI and still have way way to much snow on the ground. In the future will not use stainless steel ones. Wondering if I would have the same problem with the stone or glass ones?????

    Hey now, I happen to wear long sleeved coats in the middle of Ultra Summers here in Texas.. They are called ACU's...

    Even during the few "cold" days we get down here near the border, there is no reason to not use SS drip tips...

    Ok, this is funny so I have to come clean. This movie scene was real to me, I was born in Michigan and lived there for 8 years. One cold morning I decided to eat a giant slab of ice at the playground and tore the skin off of my gums, mouth was bleeding all over the snow. I thought I was dying.

    I find the glass ones like the metal heat up which I don't like. I haven't tried a stone yet but I have a Bully on the way and there not supposed to heat up.

    You know I hate winter hate the cold. I grew up in New Orleans. You can learn to live with heat, but once that cold gets ya it's right into your bones. I think the settlers were ......, they knew that north was cold and south was warm yet, they still went north.
