Winter is coming!
Very quickly in Belgium actually, much faster than I'm used to. It's also the first year where I spend a lot of time outside. Soon, that could be a lot of time outside... freezing.
I have plenty of layers to keep my upper body toasty. But I'm still shivering because my legs are way too cold in that jeans.
My plan is to spend the full day outside, or an evening after work, far from any building where I could re-heat myself. Most probably in the forest, and likely to be in a cold/dry or cold/snowy weather. I'd avoid rain, although it can still happen above zero degrees. I'd be partly on the move, partly static to look at stuff and smile, or cook food with my gas burner. I might even spend a night out, at some point, but that's not my priority.
I realise that's a lot of options. Let's make this the priority:
- cold and snowy (between 5 and -10 degrees celsius)
- full day outside
- move half the time, stand the other half, with the occasional cooking.
Is there anything I could wear (which hopefully looks OK to be in a city with it) that will prevent my legs from freezing me to death?
