Exposed skin freezes, or at least tries to. There was an infinitesimal gap between the top of my socks and the cuff of my long johns, and I felt the draft all day and have chafing and stinging now. I like my new boot-cut long johns under skirts, but for trousers, and for this weather, I think I shall stick to the cuffed ones henceforth.
The skin on my hands is so thin and dry from the cold and wind and dryness that I managed to rip several layers off of three fingers on my left hand today by tightening my (dirty, road-salt encrusted, soaking wet) bootlaces.
Damn, but that stings.
Nevertheless, rayne_daze and I wrapped ourselves up until we were approximately spherical today and got out and about today, at least as far as a few errands, the wool store, the grocery store, and amazon_syren's excellent Wonderful Women Party.
And so to bed.
 This is not a solicitation for skin care advice. Between a family tendency to thin and fragile skin and the climate I live in, believe me, I probably take better care of my skin than you do. It just doesn't necessarily help; in this weather, the best I can hope to do is break even.
