Cold weather and feeling parki !

Posted by Col on December 19, 2003

Pub discussion centerd on the origins of this word. Surfing found this hugely interesting place ( sure to provide topics for future pub entertainment ). However to the point ... feeling parki / parky / parkie for feeling cold, or a an description of cold weather, " it's parki outside ".

The best we could come up with is a relationship to the russian ( ? ) word "parka" for fur clothing. Usage slipping to "weather for parkas" or "parka type weather".

Any opinions from the board welcome.

Merry christmas to all
