Still Life with Robin: What to Give Someone in the Bomb Cyclone Zone

by Peggy Robin

We in DC are fortunate to be on the outer fringes of the "bomb cyclone" that has blasted the Northeastern coastline from the Delmarva peninsula up through Massachusetts, dumping two feet of snow in some areas. 

If you have family or friends in the hardest-hit areas, you might want to send them a little care package to warm their hearts a bit -- and maybe give them a bit of actual thermal comfort, too. And there's nothing that says you can't treat yourself, either!

Here are some hot ideas that might bring some cheer...assuming, that is, the delivery truck can find a way to their doorstep!

* Hot chocolate kit. 9 Assorted Flavors:  

* S'mores with Tabletop Campfire:  

* Cordless Electric Snow Shovel by Snow-Joe: 
For a one-time outlay of  $159 you can save yourself from years of payments to neighborhood kids with shovels - and maybe save yourself a few doctor co-pays, too!

* Electric socks! Keep your tootsies toasty!    

* Hot Hands! Safe, disposable chemical hand warmers:  

....and finally, the must-have of the omicron winter wave - FACE WARMERS (a/k/a Face Masks) For super warmth in layers, wear a cloth mask over your tight-fitting N95 or KN95 mask.

Some or all of the above should tide you over till springtime returns!
