That's right ! Why? Because they can absolutly save you're life. We are experiencing what seems like actic cold here in So.Calif. and I'm headed out right now to stock up on some long John thermals.
With a few of the new threads that today popped up on ATS. I think this is the first most logical thing I need do.

I'm mentioning this in a thread all it's own because I know a lot of people in my part of the country don't even consider the differnce long thermals really are. They can be life savers in so many situations without all the things that are quite obviously worth having some concern over. If you read this don't mess around. Go get some thermal undies right now. Not a financially involved advisement. Just one of the best heads up I can think of for
my fellow members. Stay warm.

I live in New-Brunswick, Canada.
Temps reach -40c at least a few times during the winter.
I don't own/wear thermal undies and i'm still alive.
Thermal underwear is not the answer = )

You're venturing outside BEFORE buying thermal underwear? Are you sure this is wise, have you really thought it through? I mean, at least put 2 pairs of kecks on, to keep it all safe and warm for future generations. (you could do that instead of buying thermals as it goes. This is my approach to a cold front. (fnar)

Did you just use "Arctic" and "Southern California" in the same sentence????

Just playing around. Thermals are nice and cozy.

But seriously, these temperatures are normal for this time of year in Southern California.

The rain however.............

Nothing like staying warm on those frosty So Cal nights when you get up to go pee in the middle of the night!

Nah uh, I'm sorry. Freezing in Palm springs? Not normal. I'm just offering the best simple advice I know of to combat cold weather. You don't have to be married to anything I say, just because I said it. if a few peeps listen and this lil thread helped them some way. I'm good with that.

Currently wrapped up in a blanket as I read this.. Lol. My two cents: Buy wool, wool, wool, merino wool! Polypro thermals just don't cut it, for warmth (though are good wicking layers for winter activities) but regardless, I still prefer wool! Let me say it again, wool!

Good advice. I've stocked up on thermals, insulated coveralls, wool socks and warm boots for me and hubby this year. Everyone needs a wood stove as well. You can have heat and even cook on it no matter what!

Well good advice for sure.

Re: The desert - Our family used to have a time share on Ram's Hill golf course in Borrego Springs.

On really cold nights we would run the hose on the driveway so we could "ice skate" in the morning.

According to weather.com it's currently 60 degrees in Palm springs, CA. I'm sorry, but are you frickin kidding me, 60 degrees, get over it.

It's 23 where I'm at, I wore yoga pants and an unzipped coat, no hat, no gloves (although when it got windy I wished I had, but I had pockets).

I think your exaggerating a bit there dear. Gosh, CA people can be such wimps.

My Lady,Wool? Really? I can't think of anything I want to take off more than itchy wool. just won't do for me. To stay warm it has to stay on and that means being comfy. THERMALS baby.
