winter gear

In Portland, Oregon we are suppose to have a winter like last year.  Lots of cold, lots of snow and if you were a Kelleher you were without power and a furnace for a while.  Brrrrrr!  Get yourself organized and start digging through your winter gear now.  See what fits and what doesn't fit.  Call your friends and plan a clothing swap.  I already got the kids jackets, I only had to buy 4 new ones this year.  This weekend I will be checking gloves, hats, ski pants, ski socks, ski boots, mittens/gloves, long underwear, etc.  I'm going to make a list of what I need and see who might have some hand-me-downs before I head out shopping.
