The coldometer

Yesterday I saw a lady wearing gloves so thick that she looked like a lobster.  Half of me wanted to point and laugh.  The other half respected her committment to warm hands.

But it did make me stop and think about the relationship between warmth and style.

It made me think about the fact that some people manage to glide through winter looking stylish and unfettered by the cold. 

But for the rest of us, warmth comes at a price.

I spent some time graphing my thoughts.  I hope you find it helpful.

Basically, we should all just take up ice-skating.

What's wrong with snowmen?!

There's nothing inherently wrong with snowmen...but you must agree, they're ridiculously underdressed for the conditions...

I think you should respect the cultural differences between snowmen and humans.

Ya know Anna, where I live in the far north, we don't even need gloves, or scarves, or hats. Just gumboots for the quagmire of mud everywhere... I miss wearing my winter woolies.
