For more extreme conditions, a "blimp" is used to keep the windscreen foam and fur even much further from the mic diaphragm.

   Yes, absolutely, but, a blimp wll not accomodate the mic he referenced in the photo.  And, the Blimp would cost 3-5 times the cost of that MXL mic.

   If he'd need a blimp and fuzzy, he might want to buy a better mic too.

I just mentioned the blimp as an example to illustrate a general concept which, combined with common sense, should enable him to solve his problem very simply as you and Hal suggested.
