Having lived most of my life in tropical and sub tropical countries (13 years in Puerto Rico and 28 in Mexico), and even though temperatures in Mexico could go down to at least 35 F, I had not really experienced what many would consider "real" winter, as in snow and ice.
Since living in Winston-Salem, I have experienced both!! Many residents do not really care for either, but them being a novelty for me, I really, really enjoy it!!
I've become an "expert" in winter clothes (L.L.Bean, Patagonia, North Face, oh my!), although most of my jackets and sweaters have been bought in the "Goodwill" stores. I've gotten excellent deals! I am certainly a Goodwill fan! :)
So here are a few of photos from last year (January 2014) of my experience with "Winter"....Hope you enjoy!
