1. Wear a hat. A
2. Shuffle when walking on ice. I generally walk with a purpose, and if you do that on ice, you'll be on your ass in 3 seconds flat.

4. Getting out the door, even just to take the dog out, takes at least 5 minutes of preparation (hat, coat, boots, etc.) I mean, I could just take the dog out and be cold, but I choose not to.
5. I have never loved hot coffee so much.
That's all for now...as promised I will keep you abreast of all the things I learn this winter, lest you ever have to spend a winter in the midwest!
