It is pouring rain and about 40 degrees outside. Not cool, man, not cool. NPR used the phrase "nor-easter" which amazes me. Luckily, today is a holiday (namely lots of cleaning and prepping for tomorrow), but yesterday I somehow reasoned that it would be better to walk home rather than ride my bike and my cheap Old Navy khakis were drenched. I also decided not to wear a rain coat. Lovely. I hit the tub as soon as I got home. So yes, I realize a little better planning/deductive reasoning could help me out, but I prefer to just shop my way out of this situation.

1. Rain boots. I immediately bought these when I got home. I finally found nice, tall, boots and don't want to wear those out in this mess, but all my other shoes are ballet flats or such other inappropriate footwear.

2. I have a great Marmot Precip (which no, I did not bring yesterday), but I was curious about other rain coat options. I think this one is fabulous. Albeit extreme. With Socks!!

3. My comfort is definitely worth $999. Right? You can't really argue with the "warmest garment on planet earth" claim to fame. I think I actually tried this on one time in SF.

Any other suggestions? Otherwise, I am inspired to stay in the tiny cottage and write the next great American novel about ferns. And drink lots of tea.

Cute boots...mine are similar in black and pink! That dry suit should come in handy, say, you ever want to SCUBA dive the Pacific northwest too! I feel your rain pain...think warm thoughts.
Have a turkey-tastic Thanksgiving!

i need some boots like that!

im gearing up for my 3rd winter after 6 years of life in So Cal (the last 2 in Santa Barbara!) I guess I would say it gets easier, the thing that I hate the most is how it gets so dark here early (case in point, its 5:30 and like midnight outside).
