OMG it is SO COLD . . .

Here's what I had to wear today to walk to the train and then to the office:

  • bottom underwear
  • wicking tights
  • SmartWool hiking socks
  • my work pants
  • my wind pants
  • hiking boots
  • top underwear
  • wicking turtleneck
  • work top
  • fingerless wrist warmers
  • long-sleeved polarfleece fleecy (underjacket)
  • wind shell overjacket
  • polarfleece neck/face warmer
  • scarf
  • industrial strength scarf
  • industrial strength hat
  • polarfleece mittens
Can you believe that? I walked on Lower Wacker once I got downtown. That avoids most of the windchill - but JesusMaryandJoseph it's -10 all on its own . . . 20 degrees on Saturday is going to feel like a heat wave.

Stay warm, all.

You said it! I ended up walking thru the underground Garage parking lot to avoid the outside.

I bet you were warm under it all!
Did you look like the kid in the movie 'A Christmas Story'? We are in a deep freeze here too...stay warm!

I did - actually sort of looked like a blue and black female version of the Michelin Man. :-D So glad I didn't topple over - it would have been hard to get back up :-D

I hope your weather is beginning to warm up. It sounds miserable! Makes our 40 degrees seem downright balmy.
