Minnesota weather is really rather interesting.
Before moving here, I was told that Minnesota has a “dry” cold. Not sure what that meant exactly.
Now I do. It is very dry. Scratch, scratch, scratch. I feel itchy all over sometimes. It’s important to stay hydrated and using a good lotion is also important.
We use CeraVe — also recommended by Dr. Oz for dry skin.
Another interesting tidbit — chapstick is sold in 3’s instead of the usual 1 like what I’m used to seeing in Seattle. I’m sure you can find a single one but every time I’ve looked, they have sold them in a pack of 3.
My asthma has not kicked in yet either. Good news as I thought for sure I’d be spending a lot of time in the emergency room. My breath has only been “taken away” once since I’ve been here and I haven’t had to use an inhaler to stop its continuance. I simply put a warm glove over my mouth until I arrived at a warm place.
I just need to stay out of the cold north winds and then I’m fine.
