How Cold is COLD?
I'm going to DC on Friday and the day weather report has lows of 28 to highs of 51. I have no idea how cold that is! Do I need special shoes or clothing? I've never lived anywhere that has snow, and I'm not even sure I've been anywhere colder than 50!(Fahrenheit) It may hit the 40s in Oakland, but I'm not sure.
I know I'm a wuss because my brother that lives in Wisconsin told me so, he also said I need a snowsuit and snow shoes, but I'm pretty sure he was just making fun of me.
What are you snowbound wintery people folks wearing to protect yourself from the cold? Are layers and a warm wool coat good enough? I'm wondering if I should get lined boots.
