Some days it is about surviving the elements. When the temperature drops below zero and the wind kicks in we need to cover up, otherwise our skin would suffer from frost bite, which can happen very quickly. In our doorway hangs a chart about wind chill and the risk of frost bite. In strong winds, as we had it the other day, skin can be damaged within seconds.
On cold, windy days we bundle up and waddle outside in our bulky clothes like sumo ringers.
