Birds of a feather flock together (except in cold weather)
Problem is my co-herfers are grizzly bears.
Okay, maybe not, but they DO hibernate from cigars in the winter. Even given the relative comfort of a garage, they are perfectly content to go literally weeks on end without enjoying so much as a small panatela.
Hitting up the local B&M is fine, but to be perfectly honest, I just prefer smoking outside. If that means I need to put on a layer or two and wear a hat & gloves, then so be it. A petite corona like the Rocky Patel Junior cigars or a Buenos Madurito takes about 20 minutes to smoke, just enough time to walk around the block (exercise I could use anyway).
Fortunately, I'm allowed to smoke cigars at work. So it's usually not an issue, unless I'm looking to punctuate a nice dinner with an equally nice after-dinner smoke.
How about you? Do you abstain in cold weather, or do you brave it? Do you spend more time in your local smoke shop? Share your winter strategy with a comment.
