HOW many layers???

Updated: Dec 21, 2022

Does 10 degrees below 0 feel different than 23 degrees below 0?

I don't know.

The Sanctuary animals need to be fed, watered and loved on regardless of the temperature.

Once winter starts I wear the same amount of layers and have

my 'get dressed ritual' (note the Bulldog appearing at 8 seconds):

  1. base layer top and bottom

  2. long underwear top and bottom

  3. pants and shirt

  4. heated sweatshirt

  5. insulated bib overalls

  6. neck dickie

  7. long, waterproof coat

  8. scarf

  9. face mask

  10. stocking hat

  11. heated mittens

  12. insulated boots

TWELVE layers in all!

Totally worth it when I see how excited our residents get when we approach with a meal - meow, oink and moooooooooooooooooo.
