In theory, I think that winter is pretty. There is that calm that comes over you when there is enough snow on a weekend morning that muffles all the noises. You can start the morning slow, some music on the radio, a hot cup of tea in your hand, staring out at the snow falling. If I’m lucky, I can see some wild life.
In practice, winter is an evil succubus of heat. I am always cold. There are very few occasions where I am warm from October to May. I usually spend about an hour a day outside. Some of this is walking over a bridge. Let me tell you, if you haven’t walked over a bridge in negative temperatures, you’re lucky.
There are things that you can do that will help with your warmth in the winter. I have broken these down into “Home” and “Personal” (Aka Part 2).
