Is it cold? That depends.

I was recently in the north of Cambodia for a few days, which meant that I was at about the same latitude as Honduras. The desk clerk at the hotel warned me that it would be cold in the mornings, so I should take an extra blanket. How cold? "28", she said, in an awed voice. That's about 82 degrees Fahrenheit.

And in Alaska, they're suffering from record high temperatures — the Fairbanks airport recorded a temperature of...83 degrees Fahrenheit.
