Unaware of the final accumulation (estimations were between 12"-16"), there is simply the acceptance that it has been blizzardy here. And when going out in the after-blizzard, one should bundle-up. Especially if this is one's first time playing in the snow, as it was for Uli.
How to dress warmly for snow when you don't have a snowsuit, or a jacket, or boots:
Wear your pajamas like longjohns (don't even change out of the ones you were wearing overnight: they're nice and warm).
Put on socks and shoes.
Put on a shirt with a hood and wear the hood.
Slip some plastic bags over your feet and legs (that's right, right over your shoes).
Put on a pair of your father's tube socks (they'll be thigh-highs).
Slide your legwarmers (thank you, Auntie Emily!) over your legs to hold the giant man socks and slippery plastic bags in place.
Now it's time for acrylic sweatpants and a big bulky sweater.
And outside you go!!
Try to avoid face-plants into the snow. But if they cannot be avoided, turn your sopping noggin and look directly into the camera and appear pitiful and adorable.
