What makes for 'cold' in Delray Beach?

DELRAY BEACH, Fla. - City Oyster waiter Chris Navarro is thrilled that a summer of temperatures and humidity in the high 80s feel long gone.

"I've had tables wipe my forehead for me it was so bad," he said.

Welcome to "winter."

"It's about time," said Navarro. "This is actually perfect."

His customer Carol Brouwerens says he can speak for himself.

A fleece wasn't enough to stop her from making her own heat by rubbing her hands together.

Mid 60s, even in late-November, isn't acceptable to her.

"I've also got a scarf to wrap around my neck to stay warm. If it gets any colder I'm going to break out my hat and gloves."

But it's all about perspective.

Robert Morris' North Carolina backyard took a hit from a snowstorm on Wednesday.

"It is 19 degrees in Asheville, N.C., tonight so this is warm."

People were enjoying Wednesday night's uniform of sweatshirts, winterish coats and even scarves for different reasons.

Willy Heikanwaelder has roots in places known for weather that's slightly colder than here.

"My friend is from Switzerland, I am from Austria. We are here for Christmas time, looking for snow and big celebration. We see nothing, but that's positive," said Heikanwaelder.
