Hey all, I'm in Sayreville, NJ right now, and I'm having a heck of a time dealing with this extremely cold weather. It's been over 30 years since I've been here in the winter (I've visited, but only during the summer months). I am so glad I brought my gloves, hat and scarf with me, along with a winter coat I had to buy before I came. If I didn't have to take my mother for her eye surgery, go the next day to get the bandage removed, go food shopping, and take the dog out, I don't think I'd ever leave the house - LOL.

My husband and I are planning on moving to PA sometime this year, so I guess this weather is in a way preparing me for what I will have to face in the future.

Take care everyone and please bundle up out there.

It'll take a couple of cold seasons to get used to it. Put on a big sweater or polartec jacket under your coat on the coldest days. Don't forget your warm hat, scarf and wind stopper gloves. I wear ski mittens when it's very cold outside. You'll love lightweight long underwear. You can wear it under everything. Target, WalMart, Penney's and the sporting goods stores all have something.

The weather in Philly or Harrisburg might be the same as NJ, but you are in for a shocker if you move anywhere else in the state.

It is hard to deal with the winter weather as you get older........
Gosh, I use to be out all day sledding and ice skating. I even liked shoveling mounds and mounds of snow.
However......it seems now the cold is chilling to the bones.
There is nothing that makes me like winter weather now.
Even here in SC people are in shock with this wave of winter air.
Many people that move to SC buy, or vacation, in Florida. Chasing the summer sun.

One thing I swear by for dealing with the winters here in PA: flannel lined pants. Eddie Bauer has lined khakis and jeans for about $35. I love'em.

Dress in layers when you go outside. In addition to whatever your 'main' jacket is, wear one or more lighter 'thermal layers' beneath that. A regular sweater will do, and there are all kinds of more expensive items you can get, REI, Campmor, Eastern Mountain Sports will all have them, and right now they are starting their sales on all winter wear, ... spring clothing is coming in.

For pants, get a lightweight thermal laer to wear under your pants. The right mix here is light enough that when you're inside, your legs won't be too warm, and outside in single digit temps, you feel just right.

LL Bean sells these also. And I can speak from experience, they are very nice. Here they are: http://www.llbean.com/llb/shop/35054...tn&cat4=502703
