Thread Name: What's the weather like where you are?
Subject: RE: What's the weather like where you are?
in low 50s in coastal SW WA USA. Moderate rain but fairly strong winds. Called dial a ride rather than walk my lazy self to work. I have a new jacket from lands end and again it is worthless in wind and rain. Walked two blocks to McDonalds last night in light rain and very light wind and got so cold. Took off jacket to get warmer. Put jacket back on to walk home...damp, very damp sleeves. I have sent several jackets back to lands end..stupid me for buying more but most of their stuff is quite good. they can not get jackets right but keep advertising them for serious weather and say they are waterproof. something happens with the sleeves...two blocks of walking today and wet cold sleeves hours later. Will have to return. Any recommendations for wind and rain and mild cold..strong wind, driving rain. I have a heavy yellow fisherman rain jacket..too heavy but i guess i will have to wear it. rubber does work here. And I personally do not worry at all about sweating. I am too dainty to sweat.
