We had our first big snowstorm of the winter Tuesday night through last night. It dropped 18 to 24 inches of snow here in my part of the Berkshires. My wife dug the cars out yesterday around noon, and our neighbor plowed our drive. I dug my wife's car out early this morning so that she could drive to Troy. Just finished digging out the other car. There was about a foot of snow around them.

When it's 6 degrees Fahrenheit outside, with a stiff breeze, it's important to dress warmly. Layers are the ticket. Below is what I wore this morning. Feet still got a bit chilly, but I was able to work for 15 minutes at a time (my son tag-teamed me on the wife's car).

The "Unlimited Freedom" T-shirt came from The striped shirt is from Wal-Mart. My mother gave me the sweater. The orange fleece is from Land's End. The black raincoat I got at Dick's Sporting Goods, on sale, marketed for golfers. The Carhartt insulated hat I blogged when I got it at Agway this fall. The Gerry blue down mittens came from Wilderness House in Boston, many years ago. Don't remember where I got the red glove liners.
