No kidding. In Minnesota where I live, there is always at LEAST 6 more weeks of winter. That’s why I own two down jackets (one reserved for those -20F and colder days otherwise it is too hot to wear), boxes of gloves/hats/mittens, snow pants and mulitple pairs of boots (including a pair of insulated steel-toed work boots–I have to say the “steel” part tends to reduce the effectiveness of the “insulated” part, but sometimes they are required). Happy Groundhog Day! and stay warm if you live in a cold place like me.
