My current work attire:



The reason behind the rediculosity:



Now that's very dark, but it says 12 degrees. Our furnace kicked the bucket last night at 5 PM and we haven't had heat since. We've got a few space heaters but our apartment is huge and they aren't doing much. My roommate/co-worker is dressed in a similar fashion.

That said, I braved the canal yesterday with my new skates during a balmy -34 with 25KMh winds so this feels a bit nicer by comparison :)

Now, entertain me with your own stories of cold adventures/apartments. Back to my work and tea.

Ouch. I've just spent a weekend with no heating due to a technological cock-up as well, so I can sympathise. I found that a hot water bottle on my lap and a blanket folded over it really helped - aside from the slight 'feeling like a pensioner' embarrassment issue.
