We all know what Plan B means. That’s what you do when Plan A doesn’t work.
My Plan A for winter weather involved bundling up warmly, wearing Uggs on my feet at all times, wearing a hat and gloves, and keeping very busy.
This worked fine for the first two weeks of below-freezing weather, but we are now ending our third week of twenty degree weather and the cold is hampering my production.
It is so cold that I have to wear gloves in the workshop as well as outdoors. Removing the gloves twenty times a day to handle small objects quickly becomes annoying, but going without them in this weather is not an option.
I finally pulled out my trusty fingerless gloves and started wearing them everywhere. They keep my hands warm while allowing me to handle tools and use a keyboard.
I plan on wearing these beauties until the weather turns decently warm again. I don’t care if I look like an nineteenth century newsboy with these gloves on. I can do almost any kind of work while wearing them, including posting items on my weblog.
If you have a similar situation, these gloves are available at REI and other camping supply outlets.
Plan C involves buying tickets to warmer climes.
Another month of this weather and we’ll activate Plan C. Let us hope it doesn’t come to that.
