Weathering the weather

I have trouble enough breathing in normal weather, but during the winter months I tend to hibernate indoors and don't go out too much. Mainly because I simply can't breathe out there in the frigid cold. Cold air constricts the bronchial airways and really makes it difficult for us lung-challenged folk.

So usually, when I do go out, I make sure to cover my nose/mouth with a warm scarf or stick my face in my open coat while I scurry out to get to the car. I also try to breath more through my nose, which helps because it warms the air somewhat before it reaches the respiratory system.

Anyway, while browsing
the internet yesterday, I discovered something that might make winter excursions a bit more doable...a "cold air mask." It's a fleecey kind of thing with ear loops that covers the nose/mouth/cheeks and allows your hands to be free instead of holding on to a scarf (which would have been darned convenient when I was trying to take photos outside last winter!)

Duh huh! Why didn't I think of this before? Probably because I didn't realize such a thing existed, but now that I do,
I have got to get me one of these! I may look a little strange doing it, but I just might get me some snow pictures yet!

Hi Marianne, what site did you find them on? I could use one myself, the cold air freezes my lungs and makes my mouth numb!

I could use one of those. We get some darn chilly temps around here in December and January, and I'm tired of feeling as if my lungs have turned to blocks of ice.

І'm impressed, I have to admit. Rarely do I encounter a blog that'ѕ equallу eduсative аnԁ
аmuѕіng, and let mе tell you, you've hit the nail on the head. The issue is something which too few people are speaking intelligently about. I'm vеrу
