Cold Weather Warriors

Everyone remembers where they were on this day four years ago. I was on the Washington mall with my mother and a million other eager viewers to watch President Obama’s first inauguration. We were excited; we were moved; but above all else, we were cold.

Very cold.

The program went something like this:

  1. George W. Bush arrives and takes his seat (I finish my first packet of tissues)
  2. Joe Bidden takes the oath of office (My nose is burning)
  3. President Obama delivers his inaugural address (Lips officially chapped beyond repair)
  4. Aretha Franklin sings the national anthem (Google “can’t feel toes + frostbite”)

So this year I came prepared. Here’s a look at some of the products I call my cold weather warriors.
