Lame. Took me a day to remember what I came here for yesterday. Lord.
I was just excited thinking about my new snow boots I have on order! Since moving to this new landscape I've realized that I don't have decent winter clothes. My old 10" Maine hunting boots are great for spring-fall, but they're not lined & even doubling up socks isn't helping. I found a great deal on a discontinued style from Pajar--a boot they call the Adriana. It's similar to my old boots but seems maybe an inch taller--and it looks like there's a really smart waterproof top to it that should make tucking trousers into them easier and keep out the snow. Like a cat, I don't like unexpected water. So snow isn't doing me any favors when it gets packed into cuffs and then melts on on my ankles. Jesus. They should be here Friday and I really hope they fit, are warm and keep out the snow.
I'm wading through snow that's often 6-10" deep. These can't get here soon enough. I really hope they work right out of the box, because a rrrrl bad storm's moving through. The one thing I'm not sure about is how to care for the boots. My Maine hunters are easy to maintain with a little light scrubbing and leather care. But these are synthetics so...not sure yet.
I'm eye-balling Ebay for a solid winter coat that won't break the bank. Layering my lightweight jackets isn't cutting it. I've gone through every jacket/coat I have--and they're all light- to mid-weight. Many are fitted styles; layering is out. Those that I can layer, I have, but frankly, I don't even have the right base-layers. I've been sunning it for almost two decades. What is this icy white stuff I'm surrounded by? Where's my Southern weather I've grown so accustomed to?
