Hey Stubby we’re definately not experts by any means as we just started here in the Northwest a few months back. I’m a California beach bum born and raised, and after wearing boardshorts pretty much all year around most of my life, the weather in these parts takes some getting use too although I still wear my shorts.
We’re going to do our first winter here a few days a week, but what I been doing to test the waters to prepare myself for what is suppose to be of course “the worst winter in 50 years” is first of all wearing pants (or change our name to “Dummy Dogs” lol). I been wearing of course thick socks, and I bought 2 EZ-UPs. Im also buying a few of those heater adapters that screw onto a 15 pnd propane tank to put in each EZ-UP. They cost like sixty or so bucks each at Home Depot, and I figured it’s good for us and the customers.
