    Fingerless gloves in car
    Bobble hat (with earphones) in car
    Flask
    Thermal socks
    Ladder staying in garage for night. Used to leave it on van but it was so cold & iced up in the morning.

    My fingers and feet felt it the most today. Luckily managed to get back home for lunch so I changed out socks fora set of warm ones. In between jobs I would put my gloves on too to cook up the old digits a bit. I hate detailing with them though so I might pick up a set of fingerless ones.
