Fall is always a little shocking because when it goes to about -6 degrees celsius it's really really cold. Then I get confused because well into the winter even -15 is quite comfortable and things only get awful when it's -25 or colder. Also, when it's 0 (freezing point) or -5 we all run around in t-shirts and no jackets because it feels so warm!
No matter how many winters I've gone through, my body's ability to acclimatize does not seem to have improved.
Oh well. I rode in my new coat/cape the other day! I've been looking for something blanket-like for quite some time and was so excited to find this one that buttons up really high at the neck. It's super easy to wear because of these big holes on the front where your hands are supposed to stick out. However, as I discovered the other day, it's ironically cold because of the holes!
Also, the wind resistance is highly increased with a coat like this. But, I don't care. I love it and I'll wear it!
