Temperatures around us...

This week my office is suffering from insufficient air flow and temperature control. Today, the office is up to 84 degrees. Dockers and an oxford w/tie just don't seem to do well in that heat. :)

I'm always amazed at how narrow of a temperature range we are comfortable in based on the climates, mostly artificial ones, we are used to. When I lived in San Antonio, a shady 65=70 degree day was just plain chilly. In Colorado, that's really comfortable. I know a lot has to do with humidity, but still...it's pretty amazing how much my blood "thickened" once I lived a few years at 7,500 foot elevation. One day I even went down to feed the horses in jeans and a T-shirt. The air was brisk...but it wasn't until I saw the ice in the water bowls did I realize how cold it really was!

But anyhow...84 degrees in an office setting is just a good reason for frequent breaks to the break room...where's it's just 70 degrees.

It's crazy how temperature affects us. My office seems like it's rarely the "right" temperature.

Have fun hanging out in the break room though!
