You may have trumped the level of "precipitation" on the ground, but the cold?

Hate having no fingers, either. but gloves with Thinsulate don't seem to be doing the job. Don't even want to thing about wind chill. I had some really decent winter gloves, but my brothers threw them away.

How's this? If you pick up a wrench to fix your bus during freezing weather, you'll wish you had gloves.

We had tough guys that didn't need gloves, but they found they couldn't put a wrench down because it stuck to their palm. Ahhhh, good times.
