With the perennial Washington wind (at least in the winter) factored in, you should be fine in the great outdoors. Chicago deserves its reputation as "the windy city," but the District, especially in the vicinity of the Mall, is a serious contender for that title. Of course, layering is an essential strategy for comfort in all climes at all times, although it does make responding to the "call of nature" a race against time!


You lucky lucky girl! Well, partly, that is - the best part might be looking back on this whole experience from the warmth of California but seriously I am loving going on this journey with you everyday - I could have offered you my ski clothes if your ego could have handled it!
Thanks for taking me with you as you experience a once in a lifetime! Can't wait to see a picture of you and Barack together all bundled up!


Thanks to you both for the moral support. Per Mark: I hear they're recommending bringing a roll of toilet paper--so even if "unlayering" is a challenge, it should be handy to mop up the tears.
And I wish I'd called you yesterday, Trudy--even though your size 0 clothes would be a lost cause, I think I could fit into your hats. LOL.


I wore my RED MINK COAT in D.C. last night. Mine was the only red one, but not the only
mink. Let's just say: It's f---ing freezing
here! Wear it all!


I've been hearing warnings like yours from my sister in DC all week---which is why I got all this stuff and plan to wear every last thing. Thanks!
