    Yes, I button all five buttons on my coat.

    Buttons go with pocket watches. They don't jam either.

    Actually the coat to which I referred is an L.L. Bean, about 40 years old. Heavy wool with a flannel lining, even on a day like today I open one or two buttons if I'm walking.
    Edit - minus 2f now, still windy.

    No, I don't own any down coats. I do have two made with Polartech. An old Lands End and a new North Face (Hey, it was on clearance at Sports Authority!). Polartech is the warmest man-made fiber, is lightweight and not bulky like down.

    I had a down coat years ago. It was warm but when I wore it I felt like the Michelin man.

    Looks kind of rather cold in the USA. In Australia (sunny and warm...) we are seeing a lot of media coverage about this 'polar vortex' that has engulfed, among other places across the US, Lake Michigan in Chicago, shown with long, long icicles and an ice vapour creeping over the surface — splendid photographic matter, so where are the records of the many who call the US home? Or is it too cold to play outside?? Or people skiing to work in Detroit (!). And Chicago.... is minus 26 celsius ... colder than the South Pole? Quelle horreur...
    “The photographer must determine how he wants the finished print to look before he exposes the negative.
    Before releasing the shutter, he must seek 'the flame of recognition,' a sense that the picture would reveal
    the greater mystery of things...more clearly than the eyes see."
    ~Edward Weston, 1922.

    We're too busy moving snow around. On the news this morning they posted a Tweet from someone in Alaska. "Please send our weather back." Out of curiosity I checked the current temp in Barrow. It was a balmy -9F compared to Ann Arbor 's -13F.
    WYSIWYG - At least that's my goal.
