Went out today on a break and got gloves. Was looking for a pair like the old pair so I could have one color on one hand and one on the other (having lost only one of my bright orange ones during the recent adventure), but no luck. However, I did find a kinda ugly but half-off pair of good, semi-waterproof Thinsulates at Sam's (on Liberty in Ann Arbor) (where the local lesbians got their flannel shirts in the 1970's, according to Gayle Rubin, and where you can still get Chuck Taylors in many colors, if no longer made in the U.S.). I guess it's the right time of year to have to buy gloves.
Ready to use 'em in the continuing snowy cold, through which I'm about to go make my way home.
