I’m calling it: ski goggles on a walking commute in bitterly cold weather ARE THE BEST THING EVER.
Granted, it was not high fashion. And I looked like I ought to have been riding a tauntaun to work. But with the windchill driving the temperature down to -37C (-34 in F) this morning, it was pretty darn awesome. I could keep my mouth and nose covered (even the tip, when I needed to) and not have my glasses fog up. This, my friends, is astounding. I never thought it possible. And to make it even better, that space – the bit just above your scarf and below your hat, in the cheekbone and eye region – that always feels like it’s about to freeze and crack in the cold? Did not. Did not. I was warmer and fog free in the chill.
It was awesome. Best cold weather walking commute yet.
