Once again, I've been asked a question I don't know the answer to, so I'll make something up.
How did the Elizabethans cope with the weather?
Of course, the Elizabethans had it easy. No global warming, no unstable climate. London was a town of a mere 200,000 people, and there was a cape for every puddle. I suspect Elizabeth had it easier than most. Her silken shoes don't look like outdoor gear, but the Ditchley portrait on the wall in the Main Hall here does show her weathering a storm. The clouds are gathering behind her, but there is sunshine on the other side. She is the dividing line. She dictates the weather.
That's one solution, I suppose.
