Well, its not 32 degrees and RAIN at the same time. When its raining, its usually 40 degrees... (usually I take the car when its going to rain, or at least the VFR or WeeStrom, but that day I had to take the SVs in, and I got caught in the full band of the storm).



And the helimot glove DOES have an outer/inner gauntlet design

(I just don't want to have to spend nearly $200 on a set of gloves)

I used to live on 35th and fremont, across from the Still Life cafe, which is now closed. It was a great place to live.

First off I learned long ago to tuck your guantlets UNDER your sleaves, then tightend down your sleaves over the top when raining. If you cinch the sleaves down rain cant blow up, nor drip down.

Staying on topic (hard I know for those of us outside the "Center of the Universe"): I have a pair of Held and Rev-It winter gloves. Neither are the wired for heat variety.



The Held gloves definitely work as promised (that is keep my hands toasty), but are insanely bulky -- more like snowmobile gloves -- while the Rev-it gloves are a trade-off between warmth and tactile control. That said, my hands have stayed warm WITHOUT heated grips for several hours in under 40 F temps no problem using the Helds... the Rev-its don't, but do work beautifully in the rain.

Oichen karisho!



Comrad, these borgeois swine do not know of the hardships that make a strong people strong.



Like drinking shoe polish when the vodka runs out, substituting old bra straps for timing belts on the Skoda, or using thumbtacks to hold our socks up when the mercury drops.



Ignore the flies, they don't eat that much. The revolution has not stopped, but has been put on "pause".

Jesus! a 42 degree swing? Enjoy the flu much?



In AZ you get a wider temp swing but it is still warm (65 at night and 105-115 during the day can happen)



Where are you at anyhow?

Don't forget to mention our primitive anti-everything laws here.

Like you can't dance in Utah.

At all.

Footloose was a documentary!!!

It's ironic that Utah's basketball team is named the Jazz when in fact music is illegal in Utah.



We won't get into the fact that the team's star player is named Boozer...or that Kirilenko's nickname is AK-47.

Da!



Did you hear that Aeroflot will now have real movies on the aeroplane? Whatever happened to shadow puppets and patriotic songs?



Sometimes I must drink vodka and punch myself in face to remember good times.
