You are not the only one to get cold feet. Tomorrow night it will get in the very low 20s here.

After wearing skirts for so long, I had to wear jeans today when I had to do some shopping. I had to visit the bathroom and I needed some time to realize I had to use the zipper to get my business done. ;)

This is just the start of business as usual:

BLOOMINGTON, MN
as of 10:49 pm CST

10°
CLEAR
feels like -3° (windchill factor)
H -- L 5°
UV Index 0 of 10

Already in the - minus figures on the Canada border

Wearing skirts underwear will not be the only thing FLASH frozen !

This is an acceptable time to wear de pants leggings tights hosiery under a skirted cover and highly recommended to boot !
"Kilt-On" -or- as the case may be "Skirt-On" !
WHY ?
Isn't wearing a kilt enough?
Well a skirt will do in a pinch!
Make mine short and don't you dare think of pinching there !

hail and thunder on the other side of the Atlantic. Also a northerly wind which makes a U-turn and thus posing as if coming from the S-W.

It's 7°F here in northern Illinois. I'll wear a long skirt when I walk to the village center to pay my water bill today.

We're forecast for record cold tonight, and I am seriously considering hauling out my flannel nightgown... It's as frumpy as it gets, but boy is it comfy.

I had my lavender flannel nightgown on last night when it was down to 6°F. Not the greatest look-- I'm not sure I want to take a picture.

I find a wool knee length skirt and 60-100 denier stockings or tights to be warmer than jeans worn without long johns under. I usually don't need more than that down to -10C or 14F. I pair that with a down coat to knee level. End of last season I picked up a calf length down coat, with that and knee boots, can probably get to -25C or -13F

I am sorry to hear people suffering in the cold. It will probably be a very long and cold winter. It was about 90 degrees where we live.

I have had to pull my night gowns for the closet as the temperatures have dropped into the mid 20s. All summer long I don't wear anything but my undies to bed, so it means getting used to the gowns. But when it is so cold I have to do it. Last night the temperature dropped to 23F and the heater was barely able to keep up with it. So the gown felt nice and warm.

I hate winter!!

Sometimes it's not necessarily the air temperature but the wind that adds that extra wind chill. That's the situation today with temperatures in the low 40's but the wind is really biting. Today it seems to blow straight from the front doors of the store straight to the tills.
I believe in offering every assistance short of actual help but then mainly just want to be left to be myself in all my difference and uniqueness.
