I would like to thank my super warm Gore-Tex EMS coat. . . it’s toasty, I don’t feel like a bulbous sack of potatoes in it most days and most importantly it has this great velcro thing for keeping the hood on my head (rather than just stupid little cords). This velcro flap also keeps my chin warm, and collects my drool and snot rather than letting it dribble down the front of my coat.
* The drool and snot is an effect of it being so cold the snot freezes into my nose forming a lovely plug and I have to breathe through my mouth. . .but as it is so cold I apparently start drooling. As soon as I get inside the snot-plug melts and it gushes all over my velcro flap.
I love winter, yes I do. . . I love winter, it’s snot true!!!!
