Are you surviving this winter? Barely.

Grrrrrr.

I’m so over winter! It’s like the guy you gave your number to in the club  just to get him out of your face and now he won’t go away. Ugh. I wish this knee deep snow and  subzero temps would please go away. Just when I was telling everyone this winter wasn’t as bad as last year, Mother Nature reared her ugly head. This month is going down as the coldest February in the city’s history.

Here’s the thing. I just want to wear sexy sandals, flirty frocks, and bask in the sun.  But this weather won’t let me great. And the  toughest part of it all, my job kinda requires me to be smack dab in the middle of this brutally cold weather. I can’t chase stories from behind a desk (a girl can dream, right?). Since I’m always finding myself running around in single digit temps or in the center of a snow storm, getting dressed has become very creative and time consuming.

I wear about three pairs of fleece lined tights underneath my pants. Up top, it’s usually a tank and a long-sleeve thermal shirt. I double up on my wool socks and of course, my hat, scarf, and gloves are near by.

How exhausting? I get dressed like I’m going to war, hence the army fatigue coat. That “Hawk” is no joke so I make it my business to be prepared. It’s me against “Old Man Winter” and so far I’m losing the battle.

Sweeties, how are you staying warm during this cold snap?
