Bring it on I love it, I eat this weather up, when I play outdoor hoops I love to see my opponents crumble under the weather conditions yesterday people were quitting because they are out of shape and don't train like an animal. A lot of these guys are half my age so suck it up and I hope it gets hotter and more humid and we will see who the real athletes are!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Everyone one out there have a great day and train like an animal!!!!!!!!!!!!

Naw, Hop-Sing, you got it all wrong, man! The true animal must show no fear out in the snow, the ice, the sub-zero temperatures of a harsh winter. Give me 5 degrees and a pair of cross-country skis or running gear, and I'm Kool and the Gang! And when the sleet is blowing in your face, turning you into a living snowman that just keeps going, that's when you know you have bested the elements. That's when you know you are a man's man, not huddled inside some bowling alley when the snow is falling, worry about picking up the 5-7 split when you should be outside, challenging Jack Frost to a fight to the death!
