Coats, Hats, and Scarves…..OH MY!

Southern girls have charm, good food and of course the accent, but there is one thing southerners don’t have that we northerners do…and that’s winter weather! When I arrived back to school from my home in Indiana, the weather did not seem too bad. Sure, there was about an inch or two of snow on the ground and a bit of chilly air, but I had certainly have seen much worse weather at home.

Later on, I met up with Emily Jackson (who was screaming in excitement and throwing her first “snow ball”).  She said she had never witnessed so much snow in her lifetime! That night, Julia Horn, confirmed that she had not either. I guess some people just don’t know the luxury of getting all bundled up to fight the cold and the snow as much as we northerners! Julia, Emily, and Katy Satree (another fellow friend, teammate, and also a Texan) decided that we all needed to go shopping so I could prepare them for the cold, blistering, weather of the rest of the country! Ohh…this is gonna be fun!

We decided to leave on Wednesday after our Livestock Selection course to get the southerners winter “battle-ware”.  Our first stop…the Wichita mall of course! Loading up on turtle necks, gloves, hats, scarves and snow boots as we went. We also took time to make sure their previous purchases (or Christmas presents) of coats and ski pants were up to actual winter standards. Luckily, they were. The last stop was the Dick’s Sporting Goods store to make our final purchases.

Southerners' hats....ok maybe not thooose hats...

Julia making her snow boot purchase...POLO of course =)

As luck would have it, we left the store and were welcomed by a sheet of ice. Driving slowly and carefully we all made it home safe and with our cars unharmed. (The winter weather driving lesson is a blog for another day.) We all had a lot of fun, but I guess the true test will be in two weeks when the team heads to Sioux Falls, South Dakota! =)
