You decide to go back inside and grab a jacket -- and maybe a hat, scarf, and gloves. Then, maybe not, since you're a mountain man or woman and tough enough to handle a bit of AIRISH weather.
Many times while living in the mountains, I experienced some of those AIRISH mornings. They tend to arrive during the span of time between seasons. Of course, most of our winters were AIRISH all day long.
I live further south now, but I still experience a tad of AIRISH chill when I head out early or after dark during the in-between seasons. It's the wind that gets you and sends you scrambling indoors for a jacket.

We crash through the front door, exclaiming in sounds that resemble a "brrrrr" and shake off the AIRISH chill like a dog shakes off rain. Then we head for the source of heat in the room as we hunch our shoulders and rub our hands together to warm up.
Someone in the room asks, "What'n the world's wrong with you?"
You reply, "Whoo-ee. It's a bit AIRISH out there."
My dad used it often. He was a tough mountain man and being a bit AIRISH didn't stop him from doing what he needed to do. But he often warned the rest of us to dress warmly before heading out because it was a tad AIRISH.
Tell me your stories about AIRISH weather. Did you call it something else?
I need to turn up the thermostat. It's feeling a bit AIRISH in my house this morning.

Don't forget that your pets feel the AIRISH chill, too. Make sure you keep them warm on these AIRISH days.
