I Have Brought Warm Weather Back to Denver

In much the same way that washing your car will break a drought, I figure that these will bring warm weather back to town:

My homemade version of these was working so well that I figured I might just get some material and make a nice pair.  Then, I looked on Amazon, and found these for $12.99.  I can't buy the material for that.

So, I ordered them up, and they were waiting on me when I got home, today.

 After I put them on the bike and test-rode it, I went into the house and turned on the news.  The weather forecast calls for highs in the 60s, by the end of the week.

You're welcome, Denver!

Yep, that's the way it works. In a just world people would send you money.

Very nice of you to sacrifice yourself like that!

Wow, those babies must go almost up to your shoulders! You know, a person could sew those onto a sleeping bag, and you could have a full-body cover. A pogie-baggie! That would be difficult to pedal, though.

Seriously, that was a great deal. I checked our forecast this weekend - 40 on Sunday (-10 right now), so your purchase helped us too! Thanks!

Sorry, that's +40. I put a hyphen after "weekend", but it looks like "-40". I wouldn't be thanking you for that.

I thought about making my own but for $13 these are a no-brainer.
