Wet & cold is here!

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).
