Boy am I happy I bought those blue seal mittens in Greenland last year? Oh yes. I never thought I’d have that much use of them but if last week’s photo pictured cold this week has been freezing with some mean northern winds sweeping over the country. One thing is minus 3 degrees another thing is minus 3 plus a strong wind – we’re talking a chill factor of around minus 20 and that equals pain.
I think my sister’s solution of having an extra pair of mittens ready for the cheeks is just right.
