I took a 50 degree Fahrenheit shower in Ottawa (Canada) over Christmas when
it was -4 degree F (-20 Celsius) and it was far from what I would call
warm...I even went back and tried a couple more times just to be
sure......It was certainly invigorating....perhaps its my antipodean
upbringing in Bendigo where on a cold night only gets down to about 23
degrees F. I prefer my poison hot....Yin:Yang - its what makes the world go

All the best,

Darren Doherty
