Survival

  • Atlas Snowshoes–with ~4′ of snow on the ground, these are almost a necessity
  • Keen boots–without a good pair of boots, snowshoes aren’t much use
  • Under Armour base layers–keep warm and dry no matter how wet you get in the snow
  • Design House Stockholm pleece–warm and snuggly
  • North Face WindWall–keeps the wind out and adds a layer of warmth to any good winter anorak
  • Aleve–after all that shoveling you’ll need it!
  • How about you dear readers? What do you depend on during harsh winters?

    Shoveling

    Unless you live under a rock or more likely, are one of my readers from abroad you might not know that this weekend brought Baltimore an historic blizzard.

    So this afternoon once the snow had stopped, I helped my family dig out. My mum was kind enough to supply the following video of my father and I shoveling their massive drive:

    Ok, so my sense of humor is especially punchy today– we’re all a little batty from the miles of sparkling white everywhere…
