It’s going to be colder – but only for a couple of days

I wore my new parka for the first time yesterday.  The day before it had been far milder but yesterday the day started off at about 4C (39F).  I felt cold in my wool coat so therefore judged that my parka could now be reasonably worn.

I think the Landsend wardrobe said that the parka had been tested down to -32C (-26F), when worn with a typical winter wardrobe.  I had worried that I would sweat in it but I was comfortable enough.  Realistically, I am never going to find out whether Landsend’s claims hold up (unless I visit northern Canada in the depths of winter).  Possibly, although it has been tested down to -32C, the website doesn’t say whether the wearer was still snuggly warm at that temperature.  It is possible that they were utterly frozen.  Humans aren’t really meant to live at -32C.

London’s trees have nearly lost all their leaves.  I keep meaning to take my camera out and then forgetting so these photos were taken with my iPhone.

Most of the leaves are on the ground

The author of this blog has said that we are in for a cold winter.  I think I would enjoy a cold winter, although it wouldn’t suit everybody.
