You picked a good starter winter! It's been pretty warm, and relatively snow-free so far this year.

Learn to dress in layers, if you don't already. This helps you adapt, wherever you find yourself. We keep our house fairly cool (62-65F / 16.6-18.3C,) but I have friends who keep their houses at ~78F (25.5C,) and it'd be misery if I couldn't pull off a few layers.

I rely on O'Keefe's Working Hands to keep my skin from cracking. I got some Weleda Skin Food for xmas, and that seems pretty good as well, though its twice the price (or more) of Working Hands.
