Cold? Not in Our Okie Carhartts!!

Well, as we have been learning over the past 18 months, life in Oklahoma is always changing . . . especially when it comes to the weather. It can go from clouds to rain to sun to clouds and even snow, all in a few hours it seems. We can check the weather on our little ipod apps only to have to check it again an hour later!!
       One thing that I have learned is that layering clothing is the way to go. Thin sweatshirts followed by thicker sweatshirts followed be a Carhartt jacket or coverall of some kind is the best. These Carthartt jackets are really warm. The first winter we were here, we laughed at all of the Okies in their brown jackets, brown coveralls and overalls. Most of them had the name Carhartt embossed on them . . . well, this year we have realized the benefits of the that brand . . . it spells warmth. I highly recommend trying to get your hands (and body) into a Cathartt shirt or Cathartt sweatshirt.
       Here are a few pictures of some of the kidos around the ranch, in their warm clothing - from holding baby goats to training horses to sliding on frozen ponds:
