There is a difference between ‘brisk’ and ‘cold’

Before my oldest daughter drove up from Dallas, she called to ask me what the weather was like.

“It’s pretty brisk.”

“Does that mean its about 55º?”

“55?! That’s not brisk. That’s nice.”

“So what does brisk mean?”

I thought it was in the 40’s but I decided to check.

“It’s 37º.”

“Thirty seven! O.K. Thank you very much! I am glad I asked.”

When I saw that it was 28º in Dallas, I texted her,

“I would call it cold today. Would you agree?”

She had to.

It is very cold here in Overland Park…16º!
