Chilly temperatures and wind didn’t bother Forreston’s Erin Greenfield and her niece, Jenna, during a baseball game in Oregon last week.

The Greenfields were tucked away comfortably in their “under the weather pod”, a plastic domed pop-op shelter, as other spectators braved the wind and 40-degree temperatures.

“My mom bought it for me,” said Erin as she watched her son Ethan play. “We’ve had it about a week. It is nice in here.”

Although designed for one person, Jenna, 13, sat inside the pod with her aunt. Her coat, not needed, was under Erin’s chair.

“It was too hot to wear,” she said smiling.

At the Forreston/AFC softball game, Stephanie Munroe sat in a similar orange pod, to cheer on the Lady Raiders.

“It blocks the wind,” she said.

Greenfield’s pod was manufactured by Under the Weather ®. Solo pods cost around $100 with larger pods and specialty pods also available.
