My favorite footware these days
These are my snow boots. And no, it isn't snowing outside, but I'm wearing them all day, inside and out. Because it is cold. The coldest weather these parts have had in 10 years. Right now, it is 13F outside, but with the wind chill it is -1F. Minus one. That's the coldest temp I've ever been in. Now, I know you folks in places like Minnesota, North Dakota and Manitoba are saying, You think that's cold?! Let me tell you about cold! Heh. But for a girl who grew up in the warm deserts of the Southwest, this is cold. It's so cold that the heat pump for the house can't keep up. It's switched to auxiliary heat and blowing warm air but can't get the house warmer than 62F. Which feels like heaven compared to outside, but still. It's cold.
