Why Don't People Wear Hats?

It was -4 degrees outside this morning according to KARE11 news. Despite this, I consistently see people on the bus that do not wear a hat. I'm baffled. It's COLD out there! Sunday I inadvertently left the house without my hat (I guess I was just SOOO excited to get to Bruegger's and have their Egg, Cheese, and Sausage Bagel Sandwich). Fortunately, I was walking with someone nice who offered his hat right about the point when my ears were going to freeze and fall to the ground.

Equally baffling to me are the folks who don't wear mittens...and the people who don't zip up their coat. I'm not talking teenagers trying to look cool either. These are adults...people who should know better. Aren't they cold?

I didn't get much knitting done last night. I cast on and knit one row of what will hopefully be a baby blanket, and knit about 5 sleeve rows. My friend Heather came over last night and we shared a bottle of wine, cheese, olives, and my very-lazy bruschetta (1 can diced tomatoes [the kind with basil and seasoning in the can], one shallot chopped, a splash of EVOO and Balsamic vinegar, salt, pepper, and some Parmesan cheese). After that little feast I didn't much feel like knitting. Will those sleeves EVER be done?

i was surprised when I went to get my car washed and saw that it was closed due to EXTREME cold. It didnt really feel that cold to me, and then I checked and it was only 4 degrees. Brr..guess my MInnesota blood is still strong. Lets hope it gets above ten degrees so I can get the car washed

Does really make sense, does it? I tell you, I put a hat on at 30 degrees. You guys can have the 4. Its about the only thing I don't miss about NH!
