The Family Handyman - - BEST PRO TIPS -

This might be “duh” ad­vice, but it’s worth a men­tion be­cause it’s prob­a­bly the most im­por­tant rule for work­ing in the cold. Weather con­di­tions change con­stantly dur­ing a work­day. It might feel 20 de­grees warmer on the sunny side of the house or 20 de­grees colder when you’re ex­posed to a brisk wind. In or­der to re­main com­fort­able, you need to be able to make wardrobe ad­just­ments. Wear­ing just one su­per-in­su­lated layer will in­evitably cause you to sweat when things heat up. And when things cool back down, you’ll be wet and shiver­ing like a chilly Chi­huahua.
