HELLO!!! I'm sure that those of you on the East Coast are recovering from the Blizzard we had on Saturday. Personally, my brain is still a bit snowy and my muscles are sore from digging out!
But on the bright side, shoveling snow and clearing 2 feet of snow of my car is a great workout, and I can use all the moving and stretching I can get!
Anyway, the whole "Winter Wonderland" thing got me thinking about sun, sand and surf!
Which lead me to think about fruity drinks with umbrellas being served to me on a white sandy beach by a funny,cute guy named....Well, OK he didn't have a name, or at least I didn't catch it. But he was funny in a "HA-HA" sort of way, which made him cute, and he was serving me some yummy,fruity,delicous drink ocean side and in the sun.
Which in turn got me thinking about the insulin in my pump going bad because it got all "skunky" from being in extreme heat.
Which led me back too the reality of the winter snow and cold and how the insulin in my pump reacts when the thermometer dips.
Which brings me to the following question for those of you who live in the Midwest; Canada and other northern parts of the east coast, Alaska,or the North Pole. Does the cold weather affect the insulin in your pump and if so, what the heck do you do to prevent insulin ice cubes?
