I'm leaving the Bay Area, sunny, highs in the high 60s every day while we start to break a collective sweat about our nearly rainless January, and traveling to Chicago on Thursday for a long family-visit weekend. The weather in my hometown? Well, it may get above freezing when I'm there, with daily chances of snow. I'm not sniveling. Yet. However, I realize that my winter wardrobe is really a coastal Northern California winter wardrobe--something you might break out in the Midwest's early fall. I guess we'll see how it, the wardrobe, and I hold up.
