Okay. Shannon wins
But you know what they say. -20 in the damp air feels like -40 in Winnipeg's dry air.
And it's -22 here today.
Plus -- for once -- it is sunny! There's fresh snow, but the roads are plowed. Not only that, but I was going out in the CAR rather than on foot.
Which meant that my poor, neglected La Canadiennes, the well fitting dressy weatherproof boot that I sought for so long, and now, in this year of freakish snow and ice and bitter cold have managed to wear only three times, could finally get an outing.
Despite having a 3 inch heel, these boots are incredibly well balanced for my foot and they have a lot of grip -- they are, in fact, a true winter boot. But they're a city winter boot -- not a boot meant for plowing through mountains of uncleared snow. Nor are they really up to negotiating serious ice or deep slush or for 40 minute walks in -20 temperatures. And that is the kind of winter we've had.
Another neglected love -- my GAP sweater. I can only wear this with another turtleneck underneath it to stop me from itching.
Also wearing my secret Santa Amy's sparkly scarf. Amy, if you are reading, I got a compliment on it today!
