Ear warmer headbands like this:

The North Face Ear Gear Fleece Ear Warmers @ Sun and Ski Sports

And then a scarf wrapped around your neck. You have to learn to use them right to have them cover your lower face.

The effect is almost a ski mask (or balaclava) but without the scariness.

Also, try a hat like this:

Dare2b Adults Freestomp Drop Ear Hat - Black [F01710] - 7.00 : Marshall Leisure - Outdoor Superstore - , clearance warehouse for outdoor clothing, hiking equipment,camping, camping equipment, skiwear, tents, rucksacks, caravan accessories. All at am

They look a little funny but they work really well!

It's not the cold itself that's shocking, but rather the duration. And to answer others, yes Georgia gets cold - but don't fool yourselves for a minute by thinking that it's in the same league as the Midwest and Northeast. Back in Wisconsin, a severe cold blast did not mean teens, but rather negative teens!

Bah, what's 20 degrees F between friends?

I like this weather because it reminds me of home, but I admit I do forget at times that it can cause issues for the unprepared. I hope everyone is able to keep warm and safe.

Well, this morning (@8:30, around 30 degrees I think), I saw a couple of kids standing at their bus stop in hoodies and shorts. I stopped to get some gas in Buckhead and saw some lady in jogging shorts and a long tee. Of course I saw those who were dressed correctly but those just stood out to me, they were probably from MN, ND, or 1 of those states near Canada.

At least we know it won't last for months.
This will be our second winter here. Last year was bizarre and nothing like we had heard that it would be - I heard something like the 6th coldest winter on record? And now we start with this mess? Will it be the coldest on record? I could have stayed in Missouri for this, it's two degrees warmer there today, LOL.

i'm so jealous of the beautiful late fall weather y'all are having up there. evidently, texas hasn't gotten the memo that it's december ....we're usually only slightly higher than y'all, but this wednesday, we're forecasted to be an entire 34 degrees warmer than atlanta! it's very difficult to get into the holiday spirit with warm temps and green trees, for me. i cannot wait til i am out of south texas...

san antonio. i said south texas, but it's more like southern central texas lol. i'm not one to whine or complain, but warm decembers tend to irritate me a little

flurries sound great, right about now
