Nothing like drinking freezing cold water on a freezing cold day!

My hands sweat, and my toes freeze, figure that one out!

I highly suggest checking out the Cabela's Gore-Tex Pinnacle Mitten. I did a few mile walk to my boss's place the other day, 5 degrees (F), windchill of about -20. Not a single inkling of cold fingers.

Great online price right now. I push snow in the winter for work, and when other gloves aren't staying warm, these are my go to. Never been warmer. Or dryer. Tough leather palms. Order a size up and you can probably slip some thin liner gloves in as well.

When I was a kid living in the Adirondacks -- where winter days were often well below 0F-- I would buy cheap snowmobile gloves. These were often quite light, and were insulated very simply with thick, light, open-cell urethane foam. I wore thin gloves under the mitts.

I've not seen anything as cheap and warm since.

As long as it is caffeine-free tea.....

Caffeine is a diuretic.

My doctor tells it can trigger heart attack. I suggest you not to take it.
