I shall not complain. I will wear my Canadian gear, and remember my favorite stuff for REAL cold, like toques that allow brains to keep working in freezing temps and mukluks, with imitation seal to quiet my passage when walking in the bush.
It use to be that we wore camouflage pants and jackets for hunting in the fall. But now camo clothing is trendy! Who really are we trying to hide from? Blame it on the French – the word camouflage came from the French Army in 1915. It is actually a verb meaning ‘to make up for the stage’. I wonder, what stage?
So, here’s the thing – warm air rises – cold air sinks. I am not a doctor, nurse, or shrink. What I do know is keep your head and your face covered, as well as your torso, legs, and ohhhh, I will have a whole session on hands and feet. And yes, many of these so-called trends actually came from our European and Indigenous ancestors. Sometimes I wonder if we are really re-inventing the wheel.
It is steaming cold in Canada!
