Introduction: How to Bundle Up for a Blizzard.

I am in the middle of a blizzard, and if you are too than it is important you know how to bundle up for it. Here's what you'll need:

  1. gloves
  2. 3 pairs of warm socks
  3. a coat
  4. A warm, thick jacket,
  5. tights or long johns (if you don't have either of these then try a thin pair of pajama pants.)
  6. a scarf
  7. A hat (that won't blow off in the wind!)
  8. jeans with no holes,
  9. A warm shirt.

Step 1: The Bottom Half

Let's start with the bottom half, put on a thin pair of socks. Now put a thicker pair over it, so your feet will be nice and toasty, and it will take longer for snow or freezing water to get to your feet.

Next: put on your pajama pants, tights, or long johns. Okay, putting jeans over these will be difficult, but SO worth it. I'd recommend pulling your pants all the way up, then reaching up the bottom of the legs to pull down the tights/other things. Once you put this on it might be painfully tight, if so remove pants IMMEDIATELY! You don't want to cut off circulation to your legs. Try the loosest pair of jeans you have.

Step 2: The Top Half

First things first, if you have one I'd highly recommend wearing an undershirt, then a warm long sleeved shirt.You don't have to, but it will keep your core warm, and that helps the rest of your body to feel warm.

Next: Jacket, to get this over your sleeves try holding the end of one sleeve in your hand while pulling the jacket on.

Next: Coat. Repeat.

Now Put on your gloves, if you think they'll be warm enough, fine. If not, put the third pair of socks over your gloves.

Last step: Tire the scarf around your neck so that it covers your mouth, and your nose, if possible. Then tuck the ends of your scarf into your coat, otherwise the wind will tug on the scarf and, if the wind there is as strong as the wind here, half strangle you. With that cheery thought in mind, head outside and brave the elements. ;)

By all means... DO NOT put on boots that cannot breath... the foot sweats, freezes and then turns to gangrene. Please be careful with your feet!

Jeans may be fashionable but they're next to useless in the cold. Cotton isn't much of an insulator when dry but as it gets wet in the snow, it's worse. It also doesn't do well at blocking the wind. Most wool clothing or modern synthetics do much better at insulation any wind protection.

Also, paper bags with eye holes go nicely over the head when out in a blizzard.

That could work, but in a windy blizzard, the paper bag would blow off.
