Don't forget the sweat pants. Gotta keep those knees warm now.

If I keep my feet warm, everything else is just fine...feet get cold, I have to wrap up.

Me too. There is a day every year sometime in October when I have to wear socks to be able to sleep. I call it the First of Socks.

I got several pairs of sweat pants yesterday. Gee whiz, they are so soft and warm.


There is a coolness to the air, but it's nice. The windows are still open. As long as the wind is out of the south, it stays nice for me since my windows face north.

Long Johns are important. I bet you don't wear yours out as fast as we do.

I lived for 5 endless winters in Ely Minnesota--temps dropped to 30 or 40 below zero regularly, snow stayed on the ground from November til April. I often expected to see woolly mammoths trundle across the road. I honestly do not understand why anyone would voluntarily live like that, but I guess to each his own.

I am in Missouri now, and while I remember that I won't die if I go outdoors when the temperature is below freezing, I don't do it unless I absolutely have to. No long handles for me!!

Fortunately, I am not 'vital personnel', so when the snow comes, or ice, I can stay home.

Sunshine and humidity, please come back!!
