foretasted temperatures Tuesday are -30'f before the windchill. its estimated at around -40 to -50 degrees Fahrenheit with the wind. we're talking literally (probably not) record temperatures since the frickin' ice age.
i really wanna brave the commute, but how serious is this? i've faired well in -20 WITH the windchill. but -50 just seems insurmountable and unsurvivable. my commute is only 2 miles.
im gonna wear:
long sleeved work clothes
long thermal under wear
(thick) work pants
socks of course
layer 1- super thin cheap gloves
layer 2- dual layer insulated closed cell neoprene gloves
layer 3- leather ski gloves
im kinda stressing about this. does anyone who has actually encountered these gnarly temperatures have any advice? because i sure haven't.
in a 15 minute commute will my face fall off?
