Bill Tamburrino of Fallston suggests only a "native Alaskan" would describe a high of 38 degrees and a low of 22 as "cool," as we did on Wednesday. "To me, [that] would be quite cold, in fact, freezing," he says. "What temperature, at its highest, would be considered 'cold'?" I once met a Virgin Islander who swore he'd never felt air lower than 60. For him, that was cold. It's all relative. Baltimore's norms for a Jan. 17 are 41 and 23 degrees. That makes 38 and 22 "cool."
