In reply to: Fred Baker 's message, "Re: Greatcoat ? Federal Guidlines" on 10:46:07 02/16/09 Mon

I'm wondering who said it was a cold event. I remember one night being especially cold, another a little cold and don't recall the remaining nights because they probably weren't cold. The days were warm. I would not have wanted to lug a greatcoat during those days. Accordingly, I wouldn't refer to Banks being a "cold" event.

If folks were not prepared, they were likely cold. Layers help. If you wear drawers - especially at night - you'll be warmer. An extra shirt at night is also welcome. Layers on the appendages do wonders to keep the body warm. This means an extra layer of heavy wool socks on the feet (dry ones against the feet while that day's pair turned inside out and covering the new pair), a wool cap or scarf covering the head, and gloves or a pair of socks on the hands. Sometimes I bring a wool vest, button it, and shove my feet into it at night. The extra layering where I get coldest firstest has saved me many times. If you do these things plus spoon, you won't be that cold even on the coldest night.

Average temps for that time of year are highs in the 60's and lows in the 40's. Shifts of ten degrees either way for the highs/lows are not uncommon.
