Executive decision on the coat. I've decided to choose the lighter weight coat vs my heavier, warmer one... I can't imagine having to lug that thing around once we get inside places we will be spending most of our time. Chris agrees.
The question becomes, do I want to be freezing cold for short spurts, or freezing friggin cold for short spurts. I have chosen door #2. Now I must accept the consequences! Please, God, be gentle!
