Rootless Rule #2: Be Prepared for Cold

I looked at the weather forecast before I left for one of my Jefferson City pieds-a-terre. In the 50s on Saturday, but in the 60s for Friday and Sunday.

How was it possible I forgot how cold it can feel in the 50s, especially when it's cloudy?

And what had I packed? A pair of sandals I can't wear socks with. And for body warmth, only a thin sweater or overshirt. Consequences: I didn't take an outdoor walk with Tim that he wanted to go on.

So Rootless Rule #2: Always have (in my bag or car) a cool-weather jacket or pullover, and a pair of shoes and socks.
