Be prepared for me to bitch about how cold it is in Michigan for quite some time. Winter just started and we have a loooooooooooooong way to go before the thaw. As I write this post, we are supposed to get 7-15 inches of snow and then the temperature is supposed to drop to – 11°. That’s a negative sign before the eleven. Unfortunately, I have experience with even worse cold. I grew up in Idaho, where it regularly got to -20°. We used to get “snow” days when that occurred because they couldn’t start the school buses. That’s just one reason why I fled.
The hubs got me this awesome sweater from Peregrine Clothing last Christmas. I bought him a sweater from there too. Not this one. It was a little too girlie for his taste. The sweaters are 100% wool (most merino) and made in the UK. It’s nice to have something that isn’t made in China, Bangladesh or some other far flung place, where there is a high likelihood that the workers are not being treated fairly. It is a godsend during these frigid months. It’s like wearing a wool blanket. Toasty.
