It's one of God's little jokes that when you have to wear mittens, you
have to get your handkerchief out of your pocket every few minutes.

I had to stop several times because I couldn't find my handkerchief. A
little after four p.m., I discovered that fuzzy gloves were now enough
and bungeed my mittens to the bottom of my empty pannier. (The other
pannier contained six stuffed chicken breasts, twelve ounces of duck
bacon (ham-cured duck breast, sliced thin and YUMMY), two pouches of
black ice, and lots and lots of insulation. Those last two items were
hardly necessary; when I filled up the empty pannier, I didn't even
look at the produce because it might get frost bitten on the way home.

After packing everything on top of the mittens, I realized that it had
gotten cold again, but it was after five and the sun sets at 5:30, so
I just rode fast. Got home before the end of civil twilight, but not
a bunch before. Rush hour is not a good time to try to cross Winona

Have you tried using a handlebar bag? They work very well for me. In
cold weather, I stock it with a few paper towels, easily accessible at
the top.
