That was really dumb!

It's winter, and there's a chill in the air. I've adapted to the layers needed to comfortably ramble in these temperatures, grabbing layers as dictated by the temperature, the wind, and whether the air is sharing space with rain or snow. At least I thought I'd adapted!

Yesterday I came home from a late afternoon walk with very cold hands. Huh. That's odd.

It took me until my walk today in the same temperature and conditions as yesterday to realize what I had done. Yes, it was my own fault - somehow I missed a layer and headed out in attire that would have been appropriate with a temperature reading ten degrees warmer than it was.

The layer I missed? It was a very light vest, normally worn under my windbreaker. Oops! I suspect I won't do that again (this winter).

Yes, I was quite warm while I was walking today, just not yesterday.
