The thing is

That when it's really cold in Chicago, which it often is, I wear a scarf around my face, or a ski mask. But when I do this, my glasses fog up, because the material covering your nose and mouth redirect your moist breath onto your glasses. And then the fog freezes onto the lens because it's so cold, leaving a layer of thin ice in your field of vision. So you can't see a thing. And you can't take off the scarf or mask, because it's too cold; and you can't just take your glasses off, because that involves taking off the scarf and mask plus your hat and hood every two minutes or so; and you can't walk blind, because you don't want to get hit by a car.

Some people would say, just get contacts. Alas, I have been unable to overcome my fear of having a sharp piece of glass or plastic nestled against my eyeball. Particularly if there's even a minute possibility that it will freeze there.
