Baby, it’s COLD outside! Bundle up!

I was born in Washington DC and grew up in the DC and Maryland.  However, for most of my life I’ve lived in Northern states where you need to wear a coat most of the year.

When I grew up I had a light coat for Fall and Spring, and a heavy coat for winter.

In New Hampshire I have a variety of coats for all the variety of cold we have here. You don’t want to wear your heaviest coat, unless you are going to be standing for a long time in the cold.  If you are going to be moving, say walking or cross country skiing, you want a slightly lighter coat or you will sweat too much.

Sweat is the one thing you don’t want in the winter.  It’s dangerous, you can die from hypothermia from sweating in the cold! It’s a good plan to have just the right coat for any situation.

Most people that live here has as many coats as I do, or more. I didn’t even put my dressier coats or my really good rain coat in the photograph.

It’s not a matter of fashion, it’s a matter of safety. I could also claim it’s not fashion with the 20 scarves I own, but that would not be true. I own a lot of black coats as I like really colorful scarves!
