This may seem like a massively stupid thread, I'm aware.
But I come from a massively hot city and I barely have winter, let alone a cold one!
I came to visit Durham in March (supposedly spring?), and that was basically colder than Italian mid-winter.
Although I am not a fan of our heat, so I love colder weathers and I was fine with a heavy parka.
So! you pioneers of sub-zero temperatures, will you be so kind as to enlighten me?
What the eff am I supposed to bring, alternatively phrased: is there anything specific or necessary for cold winters in Durham, or am I just being my usual anxious and ridiculous self?
Is this an issue at all? Just slap a down jacket on and hope I don't freeze?
I hope you pass over the sheer ridiculousness of this thread and help a girl out.
