Mid way into December means wet and cold in Oklahoma. The worst ice storm in state history was in December of 2007, it destroyed lives and property (I know as a city firefighter).
This season has been some what mild in my opinion, but today brought the cold, and the wet together for the commute home. My dressing strategy was a success, as the photo 's posted will show the weather and the dress .
The basics for this time of year are: Donegal Wool Flat cap (Hanna Hats online store), with ear muffs;
outer shell= Zero restriction Goretex jacket and pants(ebay);
mid layer= Croft&barrow fleece shirt (on sale @Kohl's);
base layer shirt= Walmart sports tee with Cold lizard polartek 300 pants;
Feet= RedHead waterproof 600gm insulated boots(Bass pro) with RBH designs insulated vaporbarier socks.
I always feel connected with the season, and enjoy it more, because of bicycle commuting. Also, I have experienced fewer colds as a result(go figure).
