Yes, it's cold here in the mountains but we are braving it quite well.
These 20 degree temps are somewhat reminiscent of my years spent
in Chicago... 44 of them to be exact.

I never expected to need those arctic boots or Eddie Bauer
30 degree below ZERO parkas.
But now, these neatly stored away items have
come in handy.
