(re) learning layers

The temperature has been hovering in the 50s during the day, dropping as the sun sinks to the horizon. That doesn't sound cold but it feels a bit nippy when I head out walking in the early evening.

It is a bit of an art to understanding the layers needed to allow me to be (somewhat) comfortable when I leave the house without overheating during my brisk walk. The transition from warmer weather to the cool of autumn and then the cold of winter surprises me each year - but I think I've found working layers for now. Tonight I wore capri-length tights, a very light fleece shirt, and a rain jacket plus my very bright blinking lights. It was nippy when I initially started (in cool and damp conditions) but I was comfortable and dry for my entire walk. Happy...
