I went to an excellent presentation on cold weather clothing last night. I plan to write all about it. But for today, let me just say that if you plan to get a new coat next winter, don't wait. Get it now. Prices are expected to double next year. And get a warm one. If it has a removable liner (like a fleece, or something), make sure that it's not made of cotton. Cotton as the outermost layer is okay, but everything else you want to be of a synthetic material.
More on that later.
