For those who have never in their life lived in a climate that is cold, moving to one when they are adult might seem like moving to a new country and a new culture. One will have to consider a lot of things that one never thought about while living in a more moderate climate. So the author prepared some guidelines about things one should consider while moving from a moderate climate to a colder climate. The first thing to consider is to have the proper clothing. Trying to get by on just some clothing would result in one hating the new place or risking frostbite. Anyone that lives in a cold climate should invest appropriately in a new pair of winter boots, gloves or mittens that are insulated, a hat that is thick, and a parka that has a hood. When choosing parka when one has a good down jacket it is absolutely fine but any cheap one can do though. To go through the daily life in the cold climate one needs some thick socks, cozy sweaters, and long underwear which would be layered under the skirts. These materials of clothing are essential for surviving in a cold climate if one wants to live there.
- If you are moving to a truly cold part of the country, do not try and make do with heavy fall gear, like bulky sweaters and sweat pants.
- Update your bedding to include fluffy comforters, flannel sheets and thick, heavy blankets.
- Make sure you get oil of the appropriate viscosity for your new environment. And don’t forget the snow tires.
