So, Boyjangles and I are likely moving to the northern midwest later this year, and after a life time of West Coast living I have realized that I have no idea how to dress for really cold weather/snow. I mean, I have a winter coat (one of those long puffy things with a faux fur lined hood) that I use for the occasional trip back east, but in terms of day to day living I just feel woefully unprepared. I also get cold really easily. So, for those of you that live in really cold places, what do you recommend? What are your favorite, must-have items? I figured if I asked now I might be able to find something on sale as winter wraps up.

Thanks for your help!
