Toto, We're Not in California Anymore

Tomorrow:
Sunrise at 8:51am
Sunset at 4:07pm
High of 23 degrees F

In San Francisco, street vendors make a killing selling sweatshirts to tourists who think that all of California is warm and therefore wear short sleeves into the city, not knowing that it's chilly there almost all year around. Well, I've found the equivalent today when I landed in this Scandinavian capital.

Hats.

Before I left, SwingDaddy asked me if I wanted a hat, and I said no, since I have a hood attached to my Polarthin jacket. Indeed, the hood is much warmer, but it's hard to see anything while wearing it, and it was nice to be able to look around at the breathtaking, snow-covered city this afternoon in the one half hour of sunlight I'll get outside this week.

Thus, a new hat. I figure it’s a kind of tourist tax, but cuter.

Norge, learn a new word in Norwegian.
Yes you can have peripheral vision with this one.

I have the same problem with my warm winter coat. Zero visibility! Love the new hat, and of course it's perfect that it's red.
