Unexpected Cold Snap?

Grab that oven mitt!

I’m reading Sara Paretsky’s “Body Work”, in which the heroine has an injured hand and can’t get her usual winter mittens on over the swelling. So she grabs an oven mitt instead. I never would have thought of that. That’s the kind of improvising that saves a person a lot of money over a lifetime. Why get frostbite or go buy larger gloves when you can repurpose, of all things, an oven mitt.
