vintage photos of winter in n.j. - highly absorbent
When I was a child, I was very interested in space projects.
The magazine "good life" regularly publishes articles on this topic;
One of them is related to the long process of astronauts "adapting" to space flight.
Even so, I thought about how they went through it, nothing compared to the day when they were ready to go out and play in the snow.
This is Spandex Gore the other day-Tex;
Hell, socks and hats are rarely seen.
It's hard to determine what's worse.
The expansion process of "adaptation" or the torture of seeing new snowfall outside, was actually delayed for so long.
Long underwear as a base is a traditional start, made of highly absorbent cotton, and after 10 seconds of your sister stepping on snow outside, it is best to keep it clean and wet.
Followed by a series of jerseys and/or cashmere shirts, each layer makes arm movements more difficult.
For the lower half of the body, the two pants are suitable, usually with a fleece layer on the top of the jeans (
Sweat pants are also not common).

When I was a child, this "ear ring" type hat was common and it did almost nothing to prevent the ears from freezing.
With or without fingers, the gloves are made of wool and when they are frozen again it is immediately soaked and rather useless.
Above all, I wear glasses, which means that my face is open to these elements, and glasses fog, snow and losing them in the snow pile are all things that can happen.
However, it doesn't matter once the door is opened, waiting for the winter wonderland of sledding, skating, snowballs and snowmen.
Although the state did not have snow in the winter of 2015 --
I think you will love it in the winter of New Jersey.
