Stay Warm in Winter

Stay Warm, Charlottesville Workers!

It’s cold out there, Charlottesville! We’ve already been hit with snow a couple times, and there’s more in the forecast. Be careful out there, guys! Prolonged exposure to the cold can cause discomfort and injury. Staying warm for those of us who spend their workdays outside this time of year is a must. So it’s time to get prepared! 

Fortunately, it’s fairly easy. Here are the basics:

  • Wear layers
  • Dress with thicker and warmer materials (wool socks, etc)
  • Wear insulated boots and jackets
  • Have as little exposed skin as possible
  • Stay dry
  • Use hand warmers when you get uncomfortable, and always keep a hot beverage nearby!

Red Wing Charlottesville can help you out with a couple of these basics. We’re fully stocked with insulated boots and merino wool socks. That’ll likely be all you need for your feet, but don’t forget about the rest!

Here are some tips from folks around Charlottesville about how they stay warm in the colder seasons.
