As if shedding a winter layer of fur, I got rid of my sweater collection…one sweater at a time. I arrived in the US with a suitcase full of sweaters. I had lightweight “summer” sweaters for cool days to heavy wool winter sweaters for chilly, blustery days. I had in between v-neck Benetton sweaters for mildly cold days. I had scarves in every conceivable color of the rainbow. I had three winter coats. One heavy. One medium weight. And one lightweight winter coat. Coming from England I needed to be prepared for all types of winter weather. The winters in England are no where near as severely cold as in the U.S. In my years living in England, I can remember maybe one snowfall with an accumulation of barely 1 inch of snow.

It wasn’t that British winters were bitterly cold. Far from it. Winters were actually quite mild. In fact, during I only wore a wool school blazer (jacket) and a scarf to school all winter long. British homes are cold. Very cold. It’s not unusual to be sweating outside and then come inside a British home and immediately start shivering. Brick walls. Turn-of-the-century construction. Poor central heating. My childhood homes were freezing. One was a turn-of-century house and one was modern, but both were frigid inside…hence the massive sweater collection!

Redskins Gift PackOnce I was living in the U.S. permanently I noticed that I didn’t need a sweater indoors. Or outdoors for that matter. And wearing a sweater under a winter coat was sure to mean I would pass out from overheating.  American homes are better insulated which means that heating is more efficient. But there is always room for improvement.
