One Minute Writer: Cold

One Minute Writer Prompt:
Parts of America have been experiencing record-breaking low temperatures. Think of a product you could invent to help people stay warm.

Oh yes, the weather has been crazy cold, even down here in Florida. We have even been into the 20s overnight and in the early morning hours. This weather is the kind of temps that would be experienced further north in say South Carolina or North Carolina.

If I could create a product that would help people stay warm is a cross between a snuggie and gloves. Something that you would still be able to put your arms through yet it keeps your hands warm while easily accessible for writing and such. Maybe a snuggie with gloves that are attachable/detachable. Of course, you could just put your own gloves on, but if these two things came in a package deal, it would be much better.

Another good idea for keeping warm are warm shoes with heaters in them. Of course, you would have to be able to somehow adjust just how warm the heat is in the shoes. Maybe they would come with a wireless remote of some sort that is small enough to put in your pocket.

Just a couple ideas, as I know I not only get cold easily, but my hands and feet get especially freezing cold this time of the year when the temps are this low.


Baby, it’s cold outside!

Crazy and utterly insane temperatures here in Central Florida this winter. It has dipped into the 20s during the nights and early mornings the last few days. The days have been in the 30s to 50s tops. While I enjoy the cooler weather, the 20s and 30s are definitely not the temps I like at all. Now, if it was in the 50s and 60s, that would be another story…of course, unless that darn wind chill was making it feel like it was even colder.

To keep warm during these cold days, I have been going with lots of layers and hot tea. I already have been loving a good cup of tea and now more than ever do I appreciate how great it is to have a hot cup to warm you up in the morning.
