Platinum Robes

After a long summer that didn’t seem to want to end, people all across the United States are suddenly finding themselves in the midst of one of the coldest, snowiest Decembers on record.

In Minneapolis, there’s been so much snow that the inflatable roof of the Metrodome actually collapsed – a first. For the Twin Cities, the recent snowfall is the fifth biggest on record.

The rest of the Midwest isn’t faring much better; blizzards have been swirling around now for a couple of weeks. Colorado, too, is reporting record snow, and the white stuff has been spotted as far south as North Carolina and Alabama.

Get Thee a Bathrobe!

Given the record cold, anyone without a terry cotton bathrobe is simply tempting fate – or else has never experienced the joy of staying home from work or school wrapped up in a terry cotton bathrobe, sipping on coffee, watching bright red cardinals flit about in a whitened winter wonderland.

A terry cotton bathrobe is both man and woman’s best friend this time of year, and it doesn’t have to remain in use just to make it to and from the bathroom. On those snowed-in days when all you really want to do is sit around the house in warm slippers in front of a peaceful fire, a soft terry cotton bathrobe is the perfect accessory to drape on over your flannel pajamas.
