 Friday the UPS driver brought me a package with something I have not had in many, many years.

Yup, I had to buy a winter coat. I knew that eventually, we would be spending some wintertime on the mountain.  That became this year when our summer trailer was destroyed by a microburst.  Rather than rebuild there we decided it was time for some new adventures. 

The coat I had been wearing in the winter for the last 5 years was a hand-me-down from my sister-in-law, had my last name emblazoned on the back, and was not warm enough for mountain winters.  I had been looking for a new winter coat for the last 2 years.  It was so exciting to find one that met all of my requirements!!

Friday was the perfect day for it to come because our weather turned from beautiful to COLD on Thursday.  I wasn't sure at first because I am not a fan of fake fur hoods.  Now that I have had the opportunity to wear it, I have decided that I made the right choice.  It has SIX pockets which, for me, made it really functional.  It has 3 ways to adjust the hood so that is working out.  I am now prepared for the winter weather this mountains throws at me!!
