    My first winter living in Chicago, the wind chill hit -76f. I had moved there from Florida and was like "what the hell have I done?!"...didn't own a winter jacket yet etc. Brutal. The following summer was the big heat wave when hundreds died and the coroner's office had to rent refrigerated semi trailers to hold the bodies. That was a crazy year...but I still miss Chicago - great city.

    Couple years ago, we a had about a month of solid -50 degree weather. After a while you kind of just get used to it.

    Meanwhile in BoCo... We had a light dusting of snow early this morning, just enough to cover the icy patches in the side yard. Of course I slipped and crashed hard when I took the dog out this morning.

    Agreed. It's not high school anymore where it was cool not to have a jacket or anything on. Too, you'd think it's people's first winter here in Cleveland. It's sad.

    Wearing coats and gloves is the best part of winter.

    I know I've seen that cashmere label before, is it possible to identity this jacket (mop, dual vent, etc) without any other tags? Thanks for your time!

    This is with the wind chill. Just want to point that out so as to not mislead people. I grew up in Illinois and experienced my share of cold winters there (and walking around next to the lake in them), but nothing, absolutely nothing could compare to the legitimate -50s I experienced while living in Russia. I absolutely believe Frenchy's claim about the cigarette at -40.

    For reference, this was me after literally 8 minutes outside in -55:

    Fingers were numb in the 20 seconds I had my gloves off to take a picture. See that mark on my cheek? I still have that patch of dead skin 8 years later.

    FYI, some good deals to be had on ralphlauren.com today, particularly with gloves, winter hats, scarves, etc.. Take an extra 20% already reduced styles using WINTER20.
